Professional Service from the Beginning

Veterinary Specialists of Rochester (VSR) was founded in 1988. VSR, originally co-housed with Animal Hospital of Pittsford, began with one board-certified surgeon and a part-time ophthalmologist. VSR grew rapidly over the next 10 years, and in March of 1998, moved into its own facility at 825 White Spruce Blvd.

The 24-hour emergency service, Animal Emergency Service, joined VSR at the White Spruce location in 2000. The two entities became Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Services (VSES).

Over the years, VSES has housed specialists in surgery, internal medicine, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, neurology, cardiology, and dermatology. Today, VSES is a 25,000 square-foot facility with more than 20 veterinarians and 100 team members providing the highest quality, state-of-the-art veterinary care in the greater Rochester area.
