  • Medical Prophy Procedures (dentistry)

More About Surgery at BVC

  • We know that surgery is an art and we are proud to offer our clients the time and ability to see our surgical facilities as well as to meet the staff performing the procedures.
  • We are proud of our AAHA certification that holds us to over 40 documented policies and procedures to follow with each surgical case. This ensures safety and thoroughness from start to finish no matter what pet is being cared for or what procedure is being performed here at Buckeye Veterinary Clinic.
  • Since we are a clinic and not a 24 hour facility, for more extensive or immediate emergency procedures we are fortunate enough to offer connections to several local specialty facilities and The Ohio State University Veterinary Hospital to all our clients.
