About Us

Pursuit of Excellence

As a specialty practice, the goal of Bay Area Veterinary Surgery (BAVS) is to partner with your family veterinarian to provide the highest level of care for our patients. If you feel your pet requires specialized care or the option of advanced surgical procedures, please contact your regular veterinarian for a preliminary diagnosis and referral.

Partners with your Veterinarian.

The goal of BAVS is that our team of employees, partners in our success, vigorously uphold our mission statement for every case that enters the hospital. We believe our clients and their pets deserve this commitment and our referring veterinarians rely on it.

As a referral-only practice, BAVS is not associated with any one hospital, and does not see patients for regular wellness exams. Our surgeons don’t just “do a lot of surgery” — they have dedicated surgical training and are board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.

Small, Local, Dedicated.

BAVS is a small, local business, not part of a national corporation, and we are dedicated to practicing high-quality veterinary medicine, to providing unparalleled care for our patients, and to providing compassionate, attentive customer service to our clients.

We understand that dealing with any medical condition for your animal companion is difficult, and we hope to make the process of seeing a specialist as comfortable as possible for both you and your pet.
