Surgical Procedures

Our full service facility operates with two surgical bays and two pre-operative anesthesia suites. It is active five days a week with two veterinarians and four registered animal health technicians working as a team to perform both routine and advanced surgical procedures. All surgical patients are maintained on intravenous fluids throughout their procedure to maintain proper hydration and blood pressure during anesthesia. Intra-operative pain medications are given on the direction of the attending surgeon. We always strive to put our patient’s comfort level as one of our top priorities.

Below is a list of some of our most common surgical procedures:

  • Spay (ovariohysterectomy)    – Dog  – Cat
  • Neuter (orchidectomy)    – Dog    – Cat
  • Declaw (onchyectomy)
  • Abdominal surgery (laparotomy, enterotomy, gastrotomy, splenectomy, bladder surgery, caesarian section and others)
  • Laceration repair
  • Eye surgery (enucleation, third eye lid prolapse)
  • Ear surgery (aural hematoma repair, lateral ear canal resection)
  • Lumpectomy
  • Orthopedic procedures (fracture and cruciate ligament repair)

Surgical Recovery

All patients are recovered from surgery in warm bedding on a heated floor. A variety of post-operative medications will be used to prevent short and long term pain upon recovery. Every animal’s situation will be different and a pain control protocol will be customized for each patient.

Our caring registered veterinary technicians will monitor and provide nursing care for all surgical patients until they are released from the hospital.
