All surgeries and simple procedures are performed by the highest-skilled surgeons and with the utmost safety. The comfort and health of your pet is our top priority. As a full-service veterinary hospital, we are equipped to handle any pet care problem. Common surgical procedures your pet may need include:

  • Spay & Neuter
    • There are numerous benefits to spaying and neutering your pet. This procedure can minimize unwanted behaviors associated with your pet’s desire to mate and can prevent unexpected litters. It also reduces the risk for major health problems including various tumors, cancers and diseases associated with the reproductive system of your pet.
    • For more information on the benefits of spaying or neutering, visit SpayUSA.org. (http://www.spayusa.org/main_directory/02-facts_and_education/benefits_sn.asp)
    • We recommend having your pet neutered or spayed when your pet is between five and six months old.
    • Spaying and neutering are generally outpatient procedures that do not require overnight hospitalization
  • Soft Tissue Procedures
    • Our surgical team can perform any soft tissue surgery your pet may need. Common soft tissue surgeries include:
      • Biopsies
      • Hernia repair
      • Abdominal exploratories
      • Bowel obstruction removal
      • Tumor removal and reconstruction
      • Plastic and skin reconstruction
      • Ear, nose and throat surgeries
      • Neurosurgery
      • Amputations

    Before any surgery, we ask that your pet does not eat after 8 p.m. and does not drink any water after midnight the night before the procedure. We take the steps necessary to make sure your pet is cleared for anesthesia. This process typically includes:

    • Blood work
    • Electrocardiograms
    • X-Rays

    During all surgical procedures, your pet is closely monitored. Your pet will receive a pain control injection prior to the procedure. An IV catheter and gas anesthesia will be used to ensure the highest level of safety.

    After surgery, your pet will be carefully monitored and have pain medicines, antibiotics and other required medications properly administered.
