Surgical Procedures

Veterinary Surgery in ChristiansburgTown and Country Veterinary Clinic offers a wide range of surgical procedures for your pet. Equipped with two surgery rooms, we are able to accommodate both routine and emergency surgery 24 hours a day. Many surgeries can be performed now with our surgical laser. Benefits include less bleeding, less inflammation, and decreased risk of infection.  Please inquire about this option should your pet require surgery.
