When to Contact a Veterinary Surgeon

Your primary veterinarian may recommend a consultation with a surgeon if your pet is in need of a surgical procedure. Our surgeons are trained in advanced surgical techniques and have the ability to treat the most complicated surgical cases.

A board-certified surgical specialist completes several years of additional training, including a one-year internship and three years of a residency at an accredited institution. Diplomate status is obtained by successfully passing rigorous specialty boards following residency. For more information, visit the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
