“We spoke to specialists that extended from El Paso to the northern part of New Mexico. Finally I came across a colleague who had gone through something similar and had mentioned the doctor that they chose out of Silver City, Dr. Bradberry. It was our last hope before putting our dog to rest. We proceeded to knee surgery that week. The healing time of the dog was nearly three times less than what we had been expecting. Dr. Bradberry was beyond professional and routinely followed up with phone calls to make sure that the healing was happening smoothly. Within 8 weeks of meeting Dr. Bradberry, we had the ability not only to keep our dog, but make her fully agile." - Jason Trujillo, Owner of Onyx (pictured)



Welcome to Advanced Veterinary Care

Advanced Veterinary Care opened its brand-new hospital in June 2017. This facility provides over 3,800 sq ft of customized space for small animal medicine and surgery, including an ICU and separate housing ward for cats.There are four exam rooms, including one made for cats and one designed for large dogs, and a Comfort Room for euthanasias.  We provide preventative care such as wellness exams and vaccinations, routine and advanced surgery, hospitalization for sick patients, and boarding. The new facility is at 212 Highway 180 W, at the corner of 180 and Little Walnut Road.  

Why Choose Advanced Veterinary Care?


It’s in our name: Care. Our number one priority is our patient: Their needs, their comfort, come before all else. A close second to our patient’s care, are the needs and concerns of our patient’s owners. We believe in tailoring the best treatment plan for each individual pet; adapting to each family’s unique schedules and demands. We believe that you must take care of yourself as well, so you can take the best possible care of your beloved pet.  

Also in our name: Advanced. Our goal is to bring “big city” veterinary medicine to all communities. Rural areas don’t have to settle for outdated or minimal veterinary care – after all, pets are family! Our doctors bring anesthesia protocols and surgical monitoring used by Colorado State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital, digital radiography, ultrasonography, ICU hospitalization, comprehensive pain management, and more to southern New Mexico’s pets. And this care doesn’t have to come with “big city” prices – our top-of-the-line care is more affordable than you'd expect.
