For over 30 years, DVSC has served as the premier surgical resource for veterinarians throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

DVSC specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of surgical diseases in dogs and cats. We work in partnership with primary care veterinarians to provide advanced diagnostics and treatments when surgical intervention is warranted. 

Our team of highly skilled veterinary surgeons are leaders in the industry and have received specialized training and board certification through the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. Together, with experienced support staff and the use of advanced technology, DVSC provides comprehensive, individualized surgical care for pets.


We recognize that surgery can be a stressful time for you and your pet. The teams at all five of our DVSC locations are committed to ensuring that each pet receives compassionate care and has the best chance at a successful surgical outcome.

Why Choose Us?

We recognize that when pets and their families come through our doors, they’ve experienced an illness or injury.

As animal lovers ourselves, we understand that this is an emotional and concerning time. For this reason, we strive to provide each family with a compassionate and accurate assessment of their pet’s medical condition, an honest evaluation regarding the anticipated success of the operation, and a long-term prognosis.

We guarantee the highest-quality surgical care possible, a focus on your pet’s comfort, and honest and open communication with you and your primary care veterinarian, as we work together for each pet’s best medical outcome.

What is a Veterinary Specialist?

You may be referred to a veterinary specialist if your veterinarian feels that your pet would benefit from advanced diagnostics, intensive care and/or specialized treatments that they are not equipped to provide.

A veterinary specialist has obtained advanced education in a specific field of veterinary medicine. After graduating from veterinary school, veterinarians who wish to become specialists are required to complete between three and four years of additional training in their field of expertise. Following that advanced training, they must then submit their credentials and pass a certification examination. Upon completion of this process, the veterinarian becomes a diplomate and is considered a board certified specialist.

Surgical Internship Program

Education is a founding principle of DVSC. We are committed to training the next generation of veterinary surgeons.

Associate doctors are graduate licensed veterinarians who plan to pursue continued training in the specialized field of surgery. While they do not perform surgery, they will assist the surgeon during the procedure and play a vital role in patient post-operative care.

Associate doctors are equipped to answer most questions about the condition and care of each patient. In most cases, clients can expect to receive routine postoperative updates and discharge instructions from an associate veterinarian.
