Is there a such thing?...and if so what schooling would one need?
No. But there is such a thing as a veterinary surgeon.
Undergraduate college, 4 years usually, then 4 years vet school, then 3+ more years to get to be a board certified surgeon. I would set aside at least 12 years for start-to-finish out of high school.
"Veterinarians wishing to become board certified must complete a three-year residency program, meet specific training and caseload requirements, perform research and have their research published. This process is supervised by current ACVS Diplomates, ensuring consistency in training and adherence to high standards. Once the residency has been completed, the resident must sit for and pass a rigorous examination. Only then does the veterinarian earn the title of ACVS Diplomate."
also veterinary surgeon is what DVM's are called in the UK (or used to be...)
Being a surgeon and a board certified surgeon are two different things by a long shot though.
