Spotlight Specialty: Veterinary Surgery

Our superior reputation is rooted in the unique fusion of industry-leading technology and doctors with the personal care of a neighborhood hospital. As a result, pet owners trust Southern California Veterinary Group when their furry family members need surgery.

At SCVG, we emphasize hands-on training, compassionate care, and safety. So if you’re fervent about veterinary surgery, there’s no better environment in which to make a difference.

Our independent-clinic mentality enables you to cultivate your surgical talent in whatever area you’re passionate. And not only do up-and-coming vets work closely with veteran team members, you build skill in complicated and specialized cases by working alongside our network of board-certified veterinary surgeons.
