March 10, 2020

Advanced Veterinary Care Center in Davie is excited to now offer minimally invasive surgery! Arthroscopy, laparoscopy and thoracoscopy have become the gold standard of care for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases. These techniques provide the surgeon with a magnified and illuminated view that can improve our ability to detect subtle abnormalities in our patients.
