Who We Are

We are pleased to announce that the Veterinary Trauma Center is a unique practice that limits care to sick or injured dogs and cats. In order to focus on the task at hand and to provide more attention for complicated cases, routine pet wellness service is not offered.

The VTC is a high tech, daytime facility providing advanced level small animal surgical, medical and urgent care. Located in Groveland across from Hardees Restaurant, the Center offers Orthopedic, General, and Reconstructive surgery. Cardiac, GI and Cancer medical services are also available.

Aside from in-house laboratory testing, other sophisticated diagnostics such as contrast radiography, ultrasonography and endoscopy are also provided. Chief of Staff, Dr. Ronald Stone has over thirty years of experience including a Clinical Assistant Research Professorship in Surgery at the University of Miami’s School of Medicine. He has served as Executive Secretary for three national veterinary organizations and has authored over 75 articles and research papers. The Veterinary Trauma Center offers twenty-four hour patient monitoring if needed, and as an added benefit an after-hours doctor-on-call emergency service is available seven days a week. Referrals and second opinions are welcomed and are treated according to the profession’s ethical code of conduct.
