Our General Surgery Service provides patients and their owners
access to routine surgical care including spays, neuters, and other
common surgical procedures. For many students and families in
the Bryan/College Station community, our General Surgery Service
and Primary Care Service together serve as their "regular
veterinarian" while away from home. As a core service of the
VMTH, our focus is to provide the best and most well-rounded care
for your pet combined with a practical development experience for
our dedicated fourth year students.
To schedule an appointment, please call (979) 845-2351.
Our clinical faculty that lead the General Surgery Service are
