Surgery

Our veterinary surgical specialists offer the expertise you want for your dog or cat.

If your veterinarian says your pet needs surgery, be sure to seek the care of a board-certified veterinary surgical specialist. The surgeons at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists are all board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. This is an important designation. It means our specialists have at least 3 years of advanced residency training beyond veterinary school and have passed rigorous examinations by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. The board-certification process ensures consistency in training and adherence to high standards in veterinary surgery.

Our surgeons have performed most veterinary surgical procedures hundreds or even thousands of times. Their advanced training and experience are the keys to a predictable outcome for your best friend’s surgical care. Learn more about our surgical specialists here.
