Specialty Veterinarians Providing a Complete Range of Advanced Pet Care for the St. Louis Metropolitan Area
AVS has veterinary specialists in surgery, medicine,
radiology, dentistry and more. Specialists are graduate
veterinarians whose membership in a specialty is awarded after post-graduate training, which includes:
• An internship
• A 2 to 3-year residency, and
• The successful completion of a rigorous written, practical and oral elimination
Once the veterinarian has successfully completed the examination only then does the veterinarian earn the title of Diplomate/Specialist/Board Certified. The residency occurs after receiving their doctorate in veterinary medicine and often after the completion of a one-year internship. This can require 12+ years of education-beyond high school.
The AVS veterinary team offers patients the expertise and the latest knowledge and procedures in 5 specialties including dentistry. The scope of AVS' services and care enables us to successfully return our patients to the best of health possible and general care provided by your family veterinarian.
