Our Surgeons


At Pet Specialists of Monterey, all of our surgical care is performed by board-certified veterinary surgeons. A board-certified surgeon is a licensed veterinarian who has obtained intensive, additional surgical training including a year of internship, three years of residency, and has passed a certification examination by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.

While your family veterinarian can diagnose and treat many health problems, certain diseases and conditions require the care of a doctor with specialized, intensive surgical training to provide the best outcome for your pet. We will work closely with your family veterinarian and other specialists to provide your pet with exceptional care.

Referrals and Appointments
