Twin Cities Veterinary Surgery

Twin Cities Veterinary Surgery is a mobile surgical practice. Diagnosis and therapeutic plans are determined both by the primary care veterinarian and surgeon. The majority of surgical procedures for patients of Waconia Veterinary Clinic are performed right here in our surgical suite, making it easier for our clients and their pets. Drs. Scott Murphy and Melissa Hoffer are both specialists in small animal surgery, who after completing internships and surgical residencies at veterinary universities, passed the rigorous tests to achieve board certification from the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. View web site.
