Veterinary Surgery

Wilkes County Veterinary Services provides patients with both of the main types of veterinary surgeries - Soft-Tissue Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery

Soft-tissue surgery involves procedures that address organs, muscles, skin, and blood vessels, while orthopedic surgery focuses on musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

In addition to our surgical capabilities, we emphasize the need for advanced pain management in all of our procedures for the safety and comfort of your pet or animal.
