Vista Veterinary Specialists

German Shepherd in the Woods


Our skilled surgical team makes Vista a great choice for your pet’s veterinary surgery.

Advances in veterinary medicine and veterinary surgery have been keeping close pace with those in human medicine and surgery. Over the last two decades, medical technology and techniques have advanced rapidly, making this an increasingly specialized field. A board-certified veterinary surgeon possesses the experience, training, and expertise to manage complex surgical procedures. Surgeons within the Ethos network have access to advanced diagnostic modalities and surgical equipment.

At Vista, we recognize the value of collaboration with you, your regular veterinarian, and our staff as a comprehensive team for your pet’s care.
