We offer comprehensive surgical capabilities for all species of animals that we treat. Whether your pet comes to us for a routine spay or neuter, or something unexpected like an ingested foreign object, he or she will be in very capable hands. If we determine that your pet needs a procedure requiring extensive aftercare, we will refer you to a nearby hospital that can provide continuous overnight care.
We take every precaution to prevent problems during your pet's procedure. Your pet’s preoperative diagnostics include an electrocardiogram (to check for heart problems), a coagulation profile (to check your pet’s blood clotting times), and preoperative bloodwork with a complete blood count and organ function panel. Our goal is to ensure that your pet is in a good position for anesthesia and surgery.
During your pet's procedure, one of our experienced Licensed Veterinary Technicians will monitor your pet’s vital signs at all times.
Our Procedures and Techniques
- General Surgery: Our doctors perform most soft tissue procedures, including spaying and neutering, bladder stone removal, mass removals, and more. Please note that we do not perform declaws, ear crops, or tail docks (unless medically necessary).
- Radiosurgery: This advanced technique uses concentrated sound waves to decrease bleeding and pain during surgery.
- Cryosurgery: Cryosurgery involves the use of liquid nitrogen to freeze and remove unwanted tissue. This procedure is a safe, minimally invasive technique for removing skin tags and other small growths. There is very little discomfort, and recovery time is fast.
- Orthopedic Surgery: We partner with a board-certified veterinary surgeon who comes to our practice to perform surgeries involving bones and joints, and complex soft tissue procedures (with the exception of back surgery).
