Veterinary Specialty Surgery in Winter Haven, FL

Veterinary Healthcare Associates is proud to be staffed with exceptional veterinary specialty surgeons here in Winter Haven, FL. Specialty surgery for dogs and cats is often more involved, specific, and advanced than the surgeries provided at general veterinarian practices. That is why we at VHA are happy to take patient referrals from hospitals around the region to help pets in need of more complex treatment.

Our two specialty surgeons are available to perform surgeries Monday through Friday, and our ICU is staffed 24/7 for continuous monitoring and post-surgery recovery. We also have a veterinary anesthesiologist to assist with pain management and make recovery easier for our Winter Haven, FL pet patients.

Once your primary care vet submits your referral to us, we will have our referral coordinators obtain medical records and other information on your pet.
