We hope your pet never needs surgery. However, if the need arises, you should know that Newberry Animal Hospital Group is committed to the most advanced procedures in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery. We are an intermediate veterinary care group. This means that our doctors dedicate their ongoing education to the latest in specialty/advanced surgical (as well as minimally invasive) techniques and methods. We routinely offer "2nd opinions” for not only medical, but also surgical, cases, whether you chose us to manage your pet's health, or not. If your current veterinarian is recommending an invasive or specialty hospital procedure, feel free to bring your pet to us for our review and opinion. Do you have a TPLO surgery recommendation for a dog that has a torn cruciate ligament (ACL or CCL issues)? There are other options to treat this problem, including much less invasive surgical techniques. There are documented successful techniques that include physical therapy and a less-invasive surgery. Most of these are more cost-effective, as well as less traumatic for your pet. We also can over a pet transport option if you need it! Let us help you explore all of your options.
What does this mean to you as a pet owner? We can often get results with less pain, less recovery time and at a reasonable cost, without the need for an expensive ‘specialty referral’. This gives you, the pet parent, the greatest value and best care options. If, however, our doctor group believes that an outside referral will give you the best possible outcome, we will not hesitate to recommend this option. In the end, your pet’s health is our primary focus.

When possible, our Veterinary Surgeons will use ultrasound in conjunction with Fine-Needle Aspiration (FNA) along with other techniques to make diagnoses. This is in contrast to traditional veterinary medicine that may recommend surgery as a first step to diagnosing diseases.
This allows several things:
the minimum pain for your pet (with maximum medical information)
the minimum expense to you the pet owner
you guide the process as we make recommendation
Often, our hospital can offer the same services as are offered at specialty hospitals. Although we work with specialists, many of our doctors have been trained to perform these specialty techniques.
