Welcome



Welcome to Animal Surgery and Advocacy Services. Our new clinic is the continuation of over 26 years of referral surgery services provided by Dr. Douglas A. Kern. We provide the highest quality surgical treatment and specialty care for your companion animals. You can be confident knowing your pet is in good hands because of our advanced training, expertise and cutting-edge technology.

Our specialty veterinary clinic prides itself on delivering state-of-the-art services, while providing compassionate care for all the animals we work with. You and your companion will receive the attention you deserve with our approach to care.

Animal Surgery and Advocacy Services has a different moral compass and code of ethics than you may have been exposed to. Some might call it “old school”. We call it the “right thing to do”. Our primary interest is in helping your pet and not to see how high the bill can become. We advocate for your pet and provide informed options that will help you make the best choices possible. Advocacy services offered are recommending surgery when justifiable and necessary, medical case review, and informational seminars on what questions to ask when seeking primary or referral care for your pet.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about our specialty veterinary services or your animal's health care needs.  We love animals as much as you do and we look forward to working with you and your pets. We know a healthy pet is a happy pet!
