Our Service

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.
