Work. Live. Play.
At Eagle’s Nest, we want you to take full advantage of work and play. People often ask, what is life like in the Northern Neck? And we tell them, it is awesome! Working at Eagle’s Nest allows you to take advantage of all the best parts of Northern Virginia with none of the hassle. No hours upon hours of DC commuter traffic and no high cost of living which means your money goes further. King George is located between the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers and offers many opportunities for boating, fishing, and water sports. We are close to outstanding shopping, restaurants, vineyards, breweries, historic towns, and the great outdoors. Colonial Beach is a short 20-minute drive and offers the second largest beachfront in the state! If sand isn’t your thing, don’t worry. The Northern Neck is also home to dozens of parks that offer everything from leisure and sports to hiking and camping. If you happen to be an equestrian enthusiast, there is also a robust community of boarding, riding, and training facilities.
Medical Resources and Equipment:
In March 2022 we moved into our brand new 8,500 sq. ft. modern animal hospital. It features separate canine and feline sides, as well as curbside and drop-off services. Eagle’s Nest offers: Internal Medicine, General Surgery, some Orthopedic Surgery, Dentistry, Theriogenology, Oncology, and Acupuncture. The average daily practice caseload is about 70 (18+/DVM/day; predominantly canine and feline).
We strive to provide the best customer service possible which means continuing to improve our standards of care. Our goals for 2023 include becoming an AAHA accredited and FearFree certified practice.

License in good standing with the Virginia Board of Veterinary Medicine or ability to become licensed in VA prior to your start date
We are a different kind of animal hospital. We have really nice employees who have a lot of fun at work while at the same time providing excellent customer service and high quality medicine. We've carefully built a culture of team work and positive attitudes. We have a new suite of Heska lab equipment, a recently upgraded fully digital X-ray machine, Doppler ultrasound, electronic records etc. Currently we have more than 7 staff per doctor, which makes everyone more efficient. We recently completed the building of our new 8,500 sq. ft. animal hospital with 10 exam rooms, two surgeries, and essentially a hospital within a hospital for cats. The cats only have to leave the cat area for surgery and X-ray. We only do small animal. There is a local emergency animal hospital which handles nights, weekends and holidays. We do work with animal control and our breeders to do the odd emergency/ c-section but it is only a handful of times a year. Our doctors bring their personal dogs to work almost every, and they are mostly free range around the hospital.
