Companion Animal Clinic is a full-service veterinary clinic and AAHA-accredited hospital. Most of their clients are cats and dogs, but they will also see pet chickens, ducks, and other poultry. Their clinic has 4 exam rooms, a complete in-house laboratory, and pharmacy.
Dr. Matt McCormick has been with Companion Animal Clinic since 1989—he joined just a year after receiving his DVM from Virginia Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine. An accomplished local veterinarian, he was the past president of both the Southwest Virginia Veterinary Medical Association and Mid-Atlantic Association of Avian Veterinarians and a member of the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians. He is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Small Animal Clinical Services at his alma mater, teaching ferret medicine, pocket pet medicine and the exotic companion mammal critical care and procedures lab. Dr. McCormick’s favorite animals to work with are bunnies, cats, and rats (yes, rats!). He especially loves to caring for kittens and other tiny creatures.
Sonali Kadam, DVM
Originally from Mumbai, India, Dr. Kadam’s family immigrated to the US in 2001. Her path to veterinary medicine was a bit non-traditional. Ever since she could remember, Dr. Kadam wanted to be a human physician, just like her dad. However, she fell in love with fish and reptiles while working at a children’s science museum in college. This altered her medical path to becoming a veterinarian. Dr. Kadam earned her bachelor’s degree from East Tennessee University in 2013 and went on to receive her DVM from the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2019. She joined Companion Animal Clinic in July 2019. Her primary interest is in exotic reptiles and enjoys getting more experience with birds and small mammals. When not at work, she plays tabletop games, cooks, sews, hikes, kayaks, explores caves, and cares for her impressive menagerie of pets, including three snakes, three cats, and a turtle.
