Unparalleled surgical expertise for your pet.
If your primary care veterinarian advises surgery for your pet, a board-certified veterinary surgical specialist is one of the best options you have. The surgeons here at Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists are all board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. This is an important designation that means our specialists have at least 4 years of advanced and extremely competitive 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 the highest 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 pet’s surgical care.
