do you do?

We enjoy all aspects of surgery! At Beacon VetCare we offer a very wide range of orthopaedic, spinal and soft-tissue procedures; we are also very well equipped, for example with a very wide range of orthopaedic trauma implants to address a wide range of fracture patients and conformations.
