Founded in 2004, the Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center fulfills a need for advanced veterinary care in Southern Oregon and Northern California. We provide specialized care for your pet as prescribed by your primary veterinarian and emergency services when your veterinarian is not available or when urgent care is required. Our team includes board certified specialists and highly trained doctors and staff, who have been chosen for their skill and expertise, as well as their compassion and dedication to veterinary medicine. Our hospital provides the same high quality advanced care and services to your pet as you would find at a specialty veterinary hospital in a larger city or teaching institution.

At SOVSC, we take our role with our partner veterinarians very seriously. Through the continuing education classes that we offer to veterinarians in the area to case studies we share through our quarterly newsletter, we appreciate the opportunity to create treatment partnerships with area veterinarians.

Our Mission

The doctors and staff of Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center recognize that there is a special bond between pets and their human family. Our goal is to work as a team, with you and your family veterinarian, to help you make the best decisions for your pet’s medical care. We are dedicated to offering the highest level of medicine, to providing a compassionate environment to those pets entrusted to our care, and to treat each pet as we would our own.
