Surgery is a common and very important service in veterinary practice. Over time Dr. Day has been fortunate to have developed a great degree of experience and expertise in the field of veterinary surgery, including the ability to provide surgical care other veterinarians might be likely to refer to a surgical specialist. We are dog and cat surgeons! In many cases we can help you!
It is important to note that Dr. Day is not a boarded surgical specialist; rather, he has years of practical experience and training that makes him comfortable in providing care to his patients where other vets might be less inclined to do so. Dr. Brown specializes in soft tissue and abdominal surgery.
If you need surgical care for your dog or cat, please don’t hesitate to contact us. If we can help, we will do our best for you, and if we do not feel your pet’s best interests are served here, we also would be happy to recommend someone who can help. We have a very advanced surgical suite including the latest anesthetic equipment, monitoring equipment, radio-surgical unit and more!
