Family veterinarians have surgical training, so they are well-qualified for routine procedures. Board-certified veterinary surgeons however, have dedicated their careers to training for advanced surgical procedures. They have access to more specialized equipment and monitoring tools than is normally available in most veterinary clinics. We provide 24-hour monitoring of your pet after surgery, and the surgeons are supported by technicians who understand the needs of animals undergoing surgery.

Your family veterinarian may opt for referral to a board-certified surgeon for advanced procedures or complicated conditions requiring specialized equipment and care.
