Welcome to Chesapeake Veterinary Surgical Specialists
COVID-19 NOTICE - 3-23-20
To all our fur families:
We recognize the massive shortages and increased demand for medical supplies due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. This is a developing and rapidly evolving situation. We believe it is our moral duty to try and conserve these much needed items, while continuing to serve our community with the surgical care of their pets.
At this time CVSS will not be performing elective surgeries and will be primarily focusing on surgical diseases which may cause severe pain or are immediately life threatening to our patients.
We are continuing to see patients as appointments and your pets needs will be discussed and recommendations will be made by the attending veterinary surgeon. If your pet's condition is not immediately life threatening or causing severe pain you may be asked to delay surgery.
We appreciate your understanding and support.

Love, Compassion, Care
I can't say enough about Dr Prostredny and how he was so caring with our dog and how he was always available to answer questions, before, during, and after the surgeries.
My pug needed surgery. These people were straight up with us, the staff was super nice and knowledgeable. They fixed my puppy's leg and now he is living an awesome and fulfilled life.
My akita is up and running and playing without any more knee issues and I couldn't be happier for her state of health. I highly recommend this place!
I have a very rowdy Maine Coon but the doctor and his tech had him laying peacefully but fully awake - I swear they are some kind of cat whisperer. I can't recommend these people more highly!
Dr. J took wonderful care of my little girl and she is now on the road to recovery. I am so thankful I was referred to them and Dr. J.
I highly recommend Chesapeake. Our dog , Mox, had ACL surgery recently and it went flawlessly. I was extremely impressed with Dr Roa and the entire staff.
Our great Dane had two knee replacements at this hospital. Excellent care and he recovered very well with all mobility until he got osteosarcoma and one of his front legs.
