We offer surgical services for your pet at your primary care veterinarian’s facility. That way, you don’t have to travel to a new location where both you and your pet will be strangers. No need to develop a new relationship with a new staff. We partner with your regular veterinarian to provide the best possible care in a familiar, comfortable environment. 

 

How to schedule a consultation — Simply ask your veterinarian if they feel partnering with a Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon would be the next best step for your pet. If they feel it is the best choice, they will contact us to schedule an appointment where we can meet, examine your pet, and develop the best treatment plan.

 

What is a Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon?

 

Like with human medicine, those doctors with an interest in a particular aspect of medicine can focus their training on a specialty. Upon completion of veterinary school, veterinarians wishing to become a specialist must successfully complete a residency program. After this advanced training regimen, the candidate must sit for and pass a rigorous examination, including requirements for certain case loads, mentorship programs, continued didactic training and research. Only then can a veterinarian call themselves a Specialist. A Specialist in Surgery is awarded a Diploma by the only certifying body that is responsible for veterinary surgery: the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.

 

Your family veterinarian can help you decide when a specialist’s services may be needed.
