Not All Pets Need Surgery  

We approach each patient individually, regardless of why they have been referred. Taking into account age, activity level, overall health, and living environment together contributes to how we prescribe the best form of treatment. For an older dog, mobility issues may be best treated with a pain management protocol for osteoarthritis. A young pup may be too young to be an ideal surgical candidate. But when surgery is indicated, VSS is prepared to handle your pet’s unique needs from diagnosis through recovery. And our focus on safety is paramount to comfort and pain management. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way, as well as your pet’s primary care veterinarian. It is exactly this team approach that provides for the best outcomes and a smooth continuum of care is just what the doctor ordered. We’ve got it down to a science.
