Certified Veterinary Technicians/Nurses
Our certified technicians share extensive training and experience in specialized surgical nursing, and in advanced anesthesia and pain management. They receive continuing education to maintain our services at the highest level, and are involved with all aspects of your pet's care from the initial consultation, to recovery and post-operative follow-up.
VSO is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm. Consultation and surgery are by appointment only. Please call to schedule, or e-mail us with scheduling questions.
