Dr. Wayne M. Johnson
Veterinarian, VMD

As a veterinarian, I especially enjoy surgery, educating owners and children on how to keep their pets healthy, the fun of puppy and kitten visits, and making elderly patients feel like puppies and kittens again.   I have had post graduate training in endoscopy, ultrasound,  laser surgery and reptile medicine.

I am proud to be a member of the Noblemen, a philanthropic organization which raises money for special needs children in the Tidewater area.  Additionally, I helped to form the NoblePets branch of the organization.  I am a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  I am on the board of interviewers for prospective veterinary students at Virginia-Maryland College of veterinary Medicine, as well as being a mentor to two current veterinary students. 

When I'm not working at the hospital, or working at home assisting my wife and my son in their duties as local wildlife rehabilitators, I love to surf fish and I enjoy writing.  I recently finished my first Fantasy novel, which I hope to have published.  We have a Golden Retriever named "Chloe".

I have the most caring and amazingly wonderful staff members here at Birdneck Animal Hospital.  I am very lucky to be surrounded by such a fantastic crew.  Please feel free to stop by with or without your pet to meet us.

Virginia Beach Animal Hospital

Office Manager

I grew up in Pennsylvania but have been in Virginia Beach for a few years now.  I have previous experience working at an animal rescue.  I love working at Birdneck Animal Hospital because I get to interact with all the adorable furry friends we have here.  I enjoy building relationships with both the clients and their pets.  It is very rewarding to help pets get the proper care they deserve and witness the bond that pet owners share with their pets.   I have 2 senior pets.  A dog named Scuffy and a cat named Mr. Wiggs.  Both are rescues and bring a tremendous amount of joy into my life

Veterinary Assistant

I am a native of Virginia Beach and a Class of 2013 Alumni of Old Dominion University, where I received my B.S. in Biology with a Sociology Minor. I love being a part of the Birdneck Animal Hospital team because I get to meet so many new clients and their furry (and some not so furry) children.  I enjoy being around animals of all species and currently have many of my own. I have two dogs, named Monte (a Miniature Pinscher mix) and Potain (a Chihuahua mix), both of which are rescues from the SPCA; a kitten named Lucy, who is a rescue from Birdneck Animal Hospital; a bearded dragon named Apollo. I am currently studying to be a veterinary technician. I also have three new pets, Buddy, Yoda and Lady.

Veterinary Assistant

Growing up as a veterinarian's son, I have always been around animals. When we moved to Virginia Beach, I wanted to become even more involved in the animal world. I started working in the hospital as a summer job in high school. Also, I have a permit to do wildlife rehabilitation, which has given me an opportunity to meet and care for new kinds of animals including opossums, squirrels and raccoons. I love working at the hospital, and hope to eventually follow in my dad's footsteps and become a veterinarian.


Veterinary Assistant

Growing up in a military family, I moved around a lot when I was younger, but one thing that stayed the same was my love for animals.  I love working at Birdneck Animal Hospital because I get to meet some new furry friends.  I am an alumni of Old Dominion University's class of 2015 with a B.S. in Biology. I have a miniature schnauzer named, Monte.


I was born and raised in Florida and am new to the Virginia Beach area.  I have never worked in a veterinary clinic before, but I am in love with it! I am so thankful for Dr. Johnson and the wonderful ladies here for making me feel at home.  I currently have a dog whom I love dearly named, Dudley.
