San Antonio Veterinary Specialists

A referral clinic owned and operated by veterinarians specializing in oncology, ophthalmology and surgery

San Antonio Veterinary Specialists (SAVS) is a unique and collaborative partnership of individually owned veterinary specialty practices in the fields of oncology, ophthalmology and surgery.

With already established roots in the San Antonio community, the SAVS doctors have come together to help provide a more intimate and personalized experience in specialty care for pets and their owners.

The SAVS mission is to deliver the highest standard of medicine and surgery with state-of-the-art technology, expertise and unmatched customer service. We know that speciality medicine plays an important part in the circle of care for our patients and we are dedicated to working closely with our referring veterinarians to ensure optimal and comprehensive care at all times.

It is important to know that SAVS is referral-based and not a 24-hour emergency clinic. Therefore, we do not treat critically ill patients. These cases are better served at 24-hour veterinary care facilities located throughout the city.

SAVS is proud to offer the following specialty services
for the people and their pets of San Antonio and all of South Texas:

Diagnostics and treatment for all cancers including medical therapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy

Diagnosis and management of all ocular diseases including medical and surgical treatments
Procedures focusing on soft tissue, oncological (cancer) and orthopedic surgeries

Referring a Patient to SAVS is an Easy 3-Step Process:


DVM to complete a New Patient Referral Form online via SAVSPets.com.


DVM to email any pertinent medical records to the referring specialist. 


DVM to provide the pet owner with a New Patient Referral Card.

Once Step 1 is completed, SAVS will contact the pet owner directly to schedule their appointment.
