Most pets require surgery at some point in their life. Whether you opt for an elective procedure for your pet, or they need life-saving surgery, you can be assured that our veterinary team is fully prepared to provide the best service possible. We understand that anesthesia and surgery can be concerning for pet owners, and we provide the highest level of care, including a thorough preanesthetic evaluation, individualized anesthesia protocol, and dedicated one-on-one monitoring throughout surgery and recovery, to ensure a safe, stress-free experience. Surgical procedures we offer, but are not limited to, include:
We recommend spaying or neutering all pets who are not destined for breeding. Sterilization provides many benefits, including reduced cancer risk, fewer unwanted behaviors, and reducing the pet population, and is a loving act you can take as a responsible pet owner. Spaying (i.e, ovariohysterectomy) your female pet involves removing the uterus and ovaries, whereas neutering your male pet involves removing the testicles.
Our veterinary team can help you determine the best time to schedule your pet’s spay or neuter surgery. In general, we recommend that cats be spayed around 6 months of age to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Small dogs can typically be sterilized around 6 months of age; however, current recommendations for large-breed dogs (i.e., dogs weighing 45 pounds or more) depend on the age at which they are fully grown, which can vary from 8 to 18 months of age.
Healthy bones and joints are vital for your pet’s overall well-being, and orthopedic conditions can limit your pet’s mobility and impact their quality of life. Whether your pet suffers an acute injury, such as broken bone, or has a chronic condition, surgery may be able to help. We offer a number of orthopedic surgeries to help your pet get back on their feet and resume normal activity.
Orthopedic surgery requires advanced training, and our skilled veterinary surgeons have experience with many procedures, including:
