Surgical Services

In addition to general practice services, we provide a vast array of advanced surgical procedures. Our surgical suites are equipped with the latest technologies in veterinary surgery and anesthesia. Surgical procedures are performed Monday through Friday with a drop-off time between 8am and 9am. Pickup is typically the same day between 4pm and 5:30pm.

Surgeries we perform include:

  • Spays/Neuters – We suggest spaying or neutering your pet between the ages of 4-7 months. The benefits of spaying your companion include eliminating unwanted pregnancies, preventing diseases such as pyometras and mammary cancer, and eliminate heat cycles. Spaying involves the surgical removal of both ovaries and the uterus. The benefits of neutering your companion include prevention of dog and cat overpopulation, prevent diseases such as prostate and testicular cancer, and eliminates undesirable behaviors. Neutering involves surgical removal of both testicles.
  • Orthopedic Procedures – Orthopedic procedures we offer include ACL (anterior cruciate ligament), luxating patella, repair of fractured bones, FHO (femoral head osteotomy), hindlimb and forelimb amputations, digit amputations, and tail amputations.
  • Abdominal Procedures – Abdominal procedures we offer include splenectomies, GDV (gastric dilatation-volvulus), gastropexy, removal of foreign bodies, and bladder surgeries.
  • Cesarean Section – Also known as a C-Section is the use of surgery to deliver puppies or kittens. Cesarean sections are often necessary when a vaginal delivery would put the baby or mother at risk.
  • Ear Procedures – Ear procedures we offer include aural hematoma repair and medical ear flushes. An aural hematoma is a collection of blood within the cartilage of the ear and the skin. This can be caused from self-inflicted injury or an infection of the external ear canal. An ear flush procedure allows for a medicated cleaning of the ear canal.
  • Additional Soft Tissue Procedures – This includes mass removals, biopsies, and abscess repairs.
Advanced Services
  • X-Ray Machine
  • Ultrasound Imaging
  • Diagnostic Scoping
  • Histopathology
  • Bloodwork to Reference Labs
  • Recovery/ICU Room – we provide the services of having technicians be with the animals after their procedures taking vitals and keeping them comfortable until they have come out of anesthesia.
