So excited to have COTA in Short Pump. I love the business concept, and I was super surprised that it was so reasonably priced. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Dr. Hester and Ashlee are pros at handling fussy feline patients! They're so responsive and helpful, and their prices are fair! Worth the 20 minute drive for us!

We are so happy we found COTA Veterinary. They have taken excellent care of our German Shepherd Rescue. They are also great with helping you get same day or next day appointments. My poor Bear was scratching day and night, with the help of COTA they realized it's was more than likely an food allergy and by a long process of elimination it turned out to be chicken. My Bear no longer itches day and night. We are getting ready to adopt another rescue and wouldn't think about taking her anywhere else.

Update: We adopted a female German Shepherd Luna. She loved COTA on her first visit.

Dr. Fenton is has been adjusting my agility dogs for years. Like, people, dogs can also be out of alignment and struggle with performance. I am thrilled to follow her to her new offices at COTA, the clinic is absolutely beautiful and the COTA team is top notch. I love their "not corporate owned" personalized approach to healthcare for my dogs.


The ladies (and George) at COTA Veterinary are so fantastic! They saw my little guy Loki and made him feel right at home. I absolutely love talking to everyone over here as their love of animals is so genuine and authentic that I feel fully supported in the care for my new pup. Special thanks to Susan and Laurie who helped my guy Loki get his puppy shots! If you’re in need of a an awesome, down to earth vet, come out to Short Pump to see the COTA fam!

Unbelievably kind staff who takes care of your pet just like you would. They truly care, and put the time and energy into going above and beyond for your animal. The vets themselves are very knowledgeable and finance conscious. Couldn't recommend them more.

COTA is fantastic! My dogs love going there. This is the first vets office that they have been in where they aren't shaking and scared. They get to sit up on the furniture and the exam rooms feel more like a cozy office than a cold metal exam room. The care is top notch, from wellness exams to sick exams. I drive an hour to get here because the care is that great. It is easy to get in to be seen, with same day or next day appointments often available. Vets, techs and staff are all very kind and care about the patients.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Fenton and the staff at COTA. I appreciate their compassion, professionalism and expert care they gave my dog (and me) and we will be back in a week to try out their chiropractic care. We're brand new to the area and having had 1 pretty awful experience at another vet office locally we drove 11 hrs to go to our old vet to tide us over until we found another vet we trusted. And that office is COTA and Dr Fenton. Thank you for the wonderful care we received!

I really am glad I took my puppy to COTA veterinary, the technician was very patient and answered all of my concerns, and you can tell they loved animals. I am a 73 year old male that of course thinks he knows everything, but each time I visit COTA I learn something else. I love these vets and technicians here. It's worth the trip from Azalea gardens, you will love it also.

I was looking for a nearby vet to get my baby checked and came across COTA in Short Pump. Made an appointment for the next day. Everyone there is extremely friendly, helpful, caring and informative. Thank you all for taking care of my kitty like he was yours!

Great service, great staff. My pug got wonderful care in a minor emergency situation. I called the office and they fit me right in. The veterinarian contacted me the next day to check on my fur baby. I could not be happier with the service.

Our Shih Tzu started showing some pretty scary symptoms on a Friday morning. Our usual vet was out of the office so we called COTA. A half hour later we were in their office for an assessment. They did a thorough exam and gave us a plan for the weekend. We had a virtual chat with their 24/7 vet service on Saturday and on Sunday Dr. Fenton proactively reached out to us to check in. We could not have asked for more focused attention! And, the feel in the treatment rooms was awesome. No metal exam table, just a comfy couch that our pup was encouraged to jump on and get comfy. Which he and I did and he was relaxed the whole time we were there! I highly recommend COTA!

The team at COTA is great. Clean, home-like environment which is less stressful for pets and the veterinarians are so responsive. Dr. Fenton is wonderful and truly takes time with her patients and clients.

We had a wonderful experience last week. Our pup is normally very nervous at a veterinary office but she jumped out of the car and bounded inside for her visit for a hurt toe. Our exam room had a couch and a pretty rug. She was allowed on the couch and was given lots of yummy cheese and treats. She said as relaxed and lounged on the couch and stretched out on the rug, too. It looked like a living room and I think that made her comfortable. The LVT and doctor were gentle and soft spoken and my dog was instant friends with both of them. They took great care of my girl!!
