I cannot say enough about Dr. Vitucci and the whole staff at Veterinary Surgery Center. I had a cat go missing for 5 days and then come home with an injury to his face. I live in a very rural area so initially I took him to the local Vet as soon as they opened that morning. Turned out his injury was actually a degloving of his chin, and his bottom jaw was broken! The Vet was not equipped to handle that injury and told us the skin would likely be lost, and Sunny may have to have his mandible removed!??!!? They referred us to an Ortho surgeon in Tallahassee. I was beside myself, freaking out and when I looked up the surgeon they referred us to, I was not impressed with the reviews.. I have to say REVIEWS ARE SO VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! I came across Veterinary Surgery Service, and how lucky I was! Who has 100% 5 star reviews? Could that even be real? Well let me tell you, from the second I called and spoke to Christy on the phone, I could tell why. She was extremely helpful. handled all my questions in an urgent manner, and placed me on hold to speak to Dr. Vitucci who said to get on the road and get there as soon as I could, and they would fit Sunny in. When I arrived and met with the staff and Dr. Vitucci, I was extremely happy with the decision to go there. This was a case like Dr. Vitucci had not seen, but he was confident he could fix the injury and Sunny would not lose his bottom jaw. he was excited to handle the case, and immediately had several ideas on how to repair the injury. He stayed late that day to complete the surgery, after I am sure what was already a long, patient filled day, and literally reconstructed Sunny's chin. I could really go on and on about how amazing these folks are. Sunny is home, with his face intact, and doing well. He has a long road to recovery, but one check up down and Dr. Vitucci's work is incredible. I feel as though he was not a number, but a patient with a very scared mommy, and we are both very, very lucky to have found such an amazing surgeon and group of people. I feel forever grateful and would drive that hour and a half for the rest of my pet owning days if I needed to. Thank you for EVERYTHING!!!!!

Dr. Vitucci performed emergency surgery on our 14- year- old Sheltie Taffy for Open Pyometra and a large Ovarian Cyst. Without his expertise and skills, our sweet girl wouldn't have lived. We highly highly recommend Dr. Vitucci, Dr. Wight, and the staff at Veterinary Surgery Services. Dr. Wight helped Taffy's sister Snuggles with emergency surgery, and a 5-star review was posted below. We are blessed to have knowledgeable and caring doctors here in Ft. Walton Beach. Thank You!!

Dr. Michael Vitucci is a phenomenal surgeon - he and his staff took incredible care of my German Shepherd, who had a fist-sized mass extremely close to his spine. I was referred to him by my primary vet, who said the surgery was too complex …

My husband and I took our dog Amos to see Dr Wight for an ultrasound. From the moment we walked into the building to the moment we left we felt like we received the very best care for our dog. Vet tech Gina was friendly and made a point to pet Amos, rub his belly, and make him feel more relaxed. Dr Wight was very easy to talk to and extremely knowledgeable. You could tell right away that he loved what he did and was a compassionate man. He never seemed in a hurry and spent time to completely answer all our questions. The whole visit went so smoothly and we left feeling like the staff and Dr Wight really cared about our dog. Dr Wight has the gift of relating well with his patients and their owners and exuding trust and compassion. He is a very knowledgeable and outstanding Veterinarian. Friendly staff, excellent care, compassionate and experienced Vet. We highly recommend Dr Wight and Veterinary Surgery Service Inc.

I brought my dog Ollie a dachshund mix to Dr. Wright for the Laser ablation surgery. He had a Ivdd episode (slipped disc). This special surgery which will help prevent him from another episode is new and only a handful of hospitals offered it in the country. I came from out of town so had to consult and admit him the day of. I was super nervous but the staff and Dr.Wright was very knowledgeable and took great care of Ollie. He is a rescue and has immense fear of people. They went above and beyond to make it sure he can undergo the surgery (we found out through blood work that he was severe dehydrated) Ollie is recovering and doing great. They checked up on him after a couple of days to see how he was doing. One of the best experience hands down.

We have taken three of our dogs to Dr. Wight. Recently, Dr. Wight removed a cancerous and invasive tumor from our yellow Lab, Toby. If the medical condition of your pet cannot be taken care of by your regular vet, Dr. Wight's Veterinary Surgery Service is the place to go. He's probably the best in the entire SE and pet owners in the panhandle are very lucky to have him around.

Dr. Wight and his entire staff is absolutely amazing! ALL 4 of my pups have been diagnosed, treated and or evaluated by Dr. Wight. Our journey started in 2018 my when "Watson~Watson" had to have back to back CCL repairs. ((The TTA Surgery is great!!)) My "Bella" had to have ultrasounds before having 2 MCT's removed. Dr. Wight repaired a botched CCL repair on my "Sunday" and Dr. V conducted and ultrasound of her spleen and liver before she had her MCT's removed. Dr. Wight diagnosed my "Girlfriend~Watson" with cancer earlier this year in which she lost the battle. He also diagnosed and removed a partial thyroid cancer in "Watson~Watson" this year. We are very blessed and beyond thankful for Dr. Wight and his staff. They do amazing work and have always taken great care of my babies. I recommend them to everyone I know that is in need of a skilled professional team to perform diagnostics, ultrasounds, surgery and much more. They truly are the best around when it comes to advanced surgery and diagnostics. I can not imagine the last few years without them and I look forward to the future as they continue to care for my "Senior Pups". We LOVE them!

Dr. Wight took very good care of our dog during a medical emergency. Very compassionate. His staff is friendly and helpful. They have taken a very bad situation and walked us through it. Our dog is still recovering but, it will be a long process. We can’t thank them enough for their prompt and diligent care. Definitely recommend him.

Our Brittany rescue, Misty, was limping so we took her to our vet who referred us to another place near by. After researching that place, I began looking for a place with better reviews. I found the Veterinary Surgery Service, and their reviews were outstanding. I called Vet Surgery clinic and they had the referral moved to their office, and setup an appointment to see Dr. Wright for an exam. They were on-time and when Dr. Wright entered the room he sat down on the floor and was able to coax Misty over to him, I was shocked she went as she is very shy. He performed a knee exam while we chatted about her history, then ordered x-rays. He showed us the x-rays and how the bone was deteriorating on both sides of the knee cap. Dr. Wright felt there was something pushing up her knee cap away from the joint, he suspected a tumor. Misty's age is unknown, but we believe she's about 8 years old. We scheduled her for surgery the next week, and they removed her leg. Dr. Wright told us to expect bruising, and how it would develop over the next few days. He told us if we had any concerns over the weekend to contact him, with pictures, via his email account and he would respond. We noticed the bruising was moving up into her abdominal area, so we sent him a pic via e-mail, and he responded fairly fast, which put our minds at ease. Dr. Wright, and his team, are very professional, caring, reliable, and responsive. The costs for Misty's amputation were exact and covered everything except for the additional costs of a pathology report, which I had asked for. I highly recommend Dr. Wright and his staff. Misty has adapted to the amputation and is getting stronger each day.

They were fantastic. The doctor took a conservative approach and did only what was needed instead of charging us for more for unnecessary tests and procedures. He was warm, caring, and friendly and explained everything well. I can’t recommend enough.
