We understand the stress that you are facing with your pet’s illness and we will help you and your pet get through this tough time. Be rest assured that our experience of more than 100 combined years of performing state-of-the-art surgery will be of comfort to you and your companion.

Our goal is to establish a diagnosis of the problem, perform only necessary medical or surgical treatments, and care for your pet after the procedure. We believe in providing patient comfort with state-of-the art methods of pain control; many times, these advanced forms of pain control will be continued even after your pet goes home.

Home care instructions will be provided to you so that you will be able to provide needed care after your pet leaves our hospital. Our discharge technician will also fully explain how to care for your pet at home. In the event that you have concerns regarding your pet after the surgery, we will be available to answer your questions.

Testimonials

  • This is an amazing facility! The doctors and staff took such wonderful care of our sweet Honey Bee. Our dog was missing for 17 days and when we found her she had been hit by a car and we weren’t able to save her right rear leg. ASC has the best surgeons and vet staff and we are so grateful to them for saving our dog. You all have so much love and compassion towards our furry friends. We consider you our Honey Bee’s Guardian Angels! Thank you!

  • The staff here is wonderful. They treat you like family. We had to bring our dog Hank in after he dislocated his elbow. They got us in the office immediately. Everything was explained clearly, Dr. DeCamp gave us plenty of time for questions. Dr. DeCamp called me first thing the morning after to answer questions that I had come up with overnight and Dr. Doyle who also helped with Hank also called to check on him as did the technician later the same day. The front office staff is also very helpful, understanding and extremely friendly.

  • Fancy (male cat) had urinary blockage and needed what they call “male to female” surgery. ASC took very good care of him. They sent him home with plenty of pain meds in individual syringes so we didn’t even have to measure it. They saved his life and now he is back to his happy self. I am so glad we took him there for the procedure. I recommend this place highly. Thank you!!

  • A huge Thank You to Dr. Dan and the staff. Our Riley torn his knee ligament and now has pins and a plate in his leg. The Dr. and staff here did a wonderful job putting Riley back together and treated us with such kindness. Having your pet have surgery is not fun and quite stressful, but the center here made it a good experience. I would recommend this place to any pet owner who’s pet needs surgery. It has been a week and Riley is recuperating very well. Thank you all so much. Jeff and Cheri Goddard
