We treat your pets like family

General WellnessWhen Autumn Trails Veterinary Center opened in April 2015, owners Dr. Jennifer Cardoza and Emily Gordon had one goal in mind — to create a veterinary center serving the greater Charlottesville, VA, region that offers high quality medicine and exceptional customer service.

Our center combines all of the services of a traditional veterinary practice with a newer concept to veterinary medicine — urgent care. Urgent care allows you to walk in at any time between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., 7 days a week, and be seen by a veterinarian. You do not need to be an established client with us. We are happy to see your pet in an emergency, and then forward your records to your primary provider.

Urgent care allows us to offer shorter wait times and less expensive exam fees than an emergency hospital. With our extended hours for urgent care, we are also available for general wellness appointments, dentistry, digital radiography (X-rays), surgical procedures, urgent care and boarding drop offs/pick-ups, every day of the week.

Patient care and comfort are always our top priority

Our clean and modern veterinary center is located at the site of the former Hydraulic Road Animal Hospital, with lots of free parking and easy access — less than a quarter mile off of Route 29 (Emmet Street) in Charlottesville and just five minutes from the University of Virginia grounds.

Please feel free to drop by at any time to take a tour of our large, state-of-the-art facility and meet our staff.  Here at Autumn Trails, we genuinely love animals and can’t wait to welcome you and your pet.

We think you’ll agree that wagging tails lead to Autumn Trails!
