In an effort to provide pet owners with a wide range of medical and surgical expertise at affordable prices, we have collaborated with selected board certified specialists in a variety of medical fields such as radiology, cardiology and orthopedics. These in-house specialty services are available on most weekdays and include written reports, take-home instructions and therapeutic recommendations.
What is a board certified veterinary specialist?
A board certified veterinary specialist is a veterinarian that has successfully completed the highest level of training in their particular field (i.e. surgery, radiology, cardiology, oncology, etc). This involves completion of 4 years of undergraduate studies, plus 4 years of veterinary school studies, then 1 year of a general rotating internship in the doctor’s chosen field, and finally, a 3-year specialty residency after which the doctor must pass a rigorous certification test.
