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
individuals dedicated to the total well-being and care of a pet
throughout its lifetime. They are great people, great clinicians,
and great educators that work side by side with our fourth
year veterinary students developing their professional skill sets.
Their passion for animals and educating allows them to both provide
total care for pets all while helping to train the next generation
