Connie Shang DVM is the Owner for MiVU PLLC founded in August 2012. Dr. Shang saw a great need for diagnostic ultrasound being readily available to all veterinarians and has grown MiVU to servicing over 200 hospitals in the VA/DC/MD areas. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004, Dr. Shang practiced in a small animal hospital for 8 years in Northern Virginia. She began doing ultrasounds during her time in general practice and later refined her sonographic skills further by completing numerous hours of ultrasound-specific continuing education at Sound-Eklin. Dr. Shang furthered her training by interning with Dr. Marty Henderson, founder of SonoVet, a mobile ultrasound practice serving the Greater San Antonio area. Dr. Shang now brings the convenience and expertise of MiVU directly to your veterinary practice in the VA/DC/MD area. In addition, Dr. Shang teaches ultrasound at multiple veterinary hospitals around the country. In her free time, Dr. Shang enjoys spending time with her husband Jarrett, her son Austin, and her fur babies May and Henry.
