General & Advanced Surgery
Your pet is your best friend, so we understand how stressful surgery can be. If your pet happens to need surgery, we are here every step of the way. Our doctors are highly trained to manage pain and rigorously monitor vitals before, during, and after surgery for the safest and most pain-free procedure. We will always explain why your pet needs a particular procedure and what pre- and post-operative care entails.
- Soft-Tissue Surgery includes most procedures that do not involve your pet’s joint or bones, such as spay/neuter procedure, mass removal, trauma and laceration repair, and much more.
- Spay/Neuter Procedure is beneficial for your pet and family. This simple and safe procedure eliminates undesirable sexual behaviors and the chance of pregnancy while also promoting a longer and healthier life for your pet and a better companion for your family.
- Oral Surgery is needed if your pet is in pain and discomfort caused from dental disease, which can infect not only your pet’s oral cavity, but also the rest of their body including the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys.
- Mass Removal is highly recommended if a tumor, cyst or hernia is located to prevent the area from growing or spreading to other areas of the body. Even a benign mass can become cancerous with time, therefore removal during early stages is easier, less costly, and preventive.
- Foreign Body Removal is always recommended if your pet has ingested a foreign body. Not all objects that are ingested safely pass through the GI tract, which can lead to serious medical issues. For your pet’s safety, give us a call right away if they ingested a foreign object.
Our entire veterinary team highly recommends spaying or neutering for all pets. It’s not just the only way to ensure your pet doesn’t become pregnant or impregnate another dog, but it can also help prevent certain cancers and other health issues.
The spaying/neutering procedure is perfectly safe and routine, and your pet will be safely given general anesthesia throughout the procedure. The recovery from spay/neuter surgery is short and relatively painless – your pet may experience mild discomfort for a few days and then will be back to their old self without any changes in their personality or physical health.
If you have any questions about spaying/neutering, including the best age to have the procedure completed (generally, the younger the better), feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any and all of your questions.
