What is a veterinary specialist?

Board-certified veterinary specialists have completed 3-5 years of advanced training after graduating with a veterinary degree. These internship and residency programs focus on a single medical discipline such as cardiology, internal medicine, or surgery. The intensive training allows post-graduate veterinarians to learn advanced technical skills and to handle exceptionally challenging cases. The veterinarian must also pass a rigorous series of examinations to attain board certification.

Our veterinary specialists work closely with your family veterinarian to provide the most comprehensive care for your beloved pet.


From Our Clients

  • I am so lucky to have you as my doctor. When I came back in for a check up my heart condition had worsened. Through your talent and your passion to help me I now feel fabulous! My pacemaker has made a tremendous difference in my life. I feel like a puppy again! I am enjoying my new lease on life. Thank you from the bottom of “heart”. –(Trevor)

  • We wanted to send our heartfelt thanks to you for the care and comfort you have given to our beloved Fenway. From his first diagnosis, you made such a scary time more bearable with your compassion and knowledge.–Christine and Ron (Fenway)

  • I wanted to express my deep gratitude to you and your staff for your many years of kindness and expertise. As you may remember, I first brought her to you when she had a heart attack at age 11, and you gave us another six wonderful years. It was an amazing gift, and I am most grateful to all of you for giving her such loving, concerned care.–Judy (Cricket Elizabeth)

  • Your good care of him, with his asthma, and your apparent real appreciation of his unique personality, meant a great deal to me – and to him, and he knew you cared about him. Thank you for giving that to him–Rebecca (Angus)

  • Thank you for caring for Starr and making her and us feel comfortable. You and your staff were wonderful. Starr was a happy and very loved dog, who loved to play with her ball, chase the squirrels, nd play at the park and cuddle at night.–Jennifer and Kim (Starr)
