The Soft Tissue Surgery Service specializes in procedures of the respiratory, urinary, and gastrointestinal tracts in large animal patients.

A Better Life

The Soft Tissue Surgery Service strives to provide large animal patients with state-of-the-art care working closely with many of the other services in the hospital.

Our faculty members are leaders in the field of veterinary surgery and are committed to excellence in clinical service and scientific research. They provide clinical and classroom instruction to veterinary students, interns, and residents preparing for careers in private practice or at other academic institutions.

In addition, our faculty members contribute to improving the practice of surgery through consultations and continuing education seminars for practicing veterinarians and the authorship of scientific manuscripts and surgical texts.

We appreciate the special relationship between an animal and its owner. We are committed to providing the best possible care and prompt communication with owners/caretakers and primary care veterinarians.

Although our service commonly consults with veterinarians and many of our cases are referred, no referral is needed for an appointment
