The University Veterinary Specialists team includes some of the world’s leading board-certified veterinary specialists. Our board certified veterinary specialists have completed specialized training in specific fields after completing veterinary school. Much like in human medicine, these specialists have in-depth knowledge in their fields and serve as a resource when specialized care is needed. These veterinarians serve a different, supplemental role to what your primary care veterinarian offers. Examples of veterinary specialists include emergency and critical care specialists, veterinary surgeons, internal medicine specialists, veterinary dentists, and oncologists. We also offer canine rehabilitation, which is sometimes incorrectly referred to as physical therapy.
We know that pet emergencies don’t always happen during business hours, and that’s why we’ve built our 24-hour Emergency Center to serve as a comprehensive resource for all of your pet’s emergency needs. At any time, day or night, our staff of experienced, compassionate emergency doctors are available and ready to see you and your pet. We will greet you at the door and will stay with you through every step of your pet’s care. If you need help getting your pet to the UVS hospital, we also offer a pet transport service.
