We are an extension of care for your patients

Sometimes a patient comes to you as their primary veterinarian and you would like the patient to be examined by a surgeon. VetSurg would like to help you with those more challenging cases.

We respect and reinforce your relationship with your clients, working closely with you to meet their medical needs. Think of us in this way. VetSurg is an extension of care that you provide for your patients. Just like primary doctors for humans are confident in referring their patients to specialists, we would like for you to have that same confidence in us.

What you can expect from us

  • Open communication – We will keep you informed through out our mutual patient’s case, sending you medical reports and results as they are available
  • Collaboration – We are available to discuss case details, formulate appropriate treatment plans and work together with you for your pet’s optimum health.
