Our

Routine & Advanced Surgery

services include:

Our talented veterinarians are capable of a myriad of surgical procedures and, when possible, perform all surgeries in our hospital rather than referring to an outside provider as part of our philosophy of continuous care.

Every surgical procedure is preceded by a full physical examination and bloodwork to confirm the patient is able to be anesthetized safely and is a suitable candidate for surgery.

Although we use the terminology routine and advanced to separate the different types of procedures, all surgical procedures are extremely serious cases our doctors and staff perform with incredible meticulousness.

Routine Procedures

Spay and Neuter

Why do we spay and neuter our pets?

Most effective deterrents of pet overpopulation and certain cancers in dogs and cats

  • Mammary tumors and uterine cancer in females
  • Enlarged prostate and testicular tumors in males

No spotting or going into heat (females)

Males less likely to spray/mark territory

Reduced aggression in males

Males less likely to mount objects/other animals

Males and females less likely to have roaming tendencies

Dental Cleanings and Extractions

Typically associated with bad breath and yellowing teeth, a buildup of bacteria in the mouth can lead to dental disease and other health conditions that can affect your pet’s major organs, including the heart, liver, and kidneys

Some signs your pet may need professional dental cleaning or extractions:

  • Unpleasant breath
  • Red, inflamed gums
  • Pain while eating
  • Yellow, brown, discolored, or loose teeth
  • Reduced interest in chew toys
  • Pawing at mouth

Benefits of anesthetized dental care include:

Thorough removal of dental plaque and tartar

Anesthesia-free dental cleaning is not an alternative to dental cleaning under anesthesia. It’s impossible to thoroughly remove plaque and tartar if the animal is not anesthetized. This is especially true for the area below the gum line where plaque is causing the greatest harm.

Less stress and discomfort for your pet

No dog or cat will allow teeth cleaning without anesthesia unless being physically restrained. Besides the stress due to prolonged restriction, an animal that is not anesthetized may also experience severe psychological stress because they don’t understand what is going on. Anesthesia eliminates most of the stress and makes teeth cleaning a completely painless procedure.

Long-term cost savings

In anesthesia-free dental cleaning, the bacteria that cause periodontal disease are not removed from below the gum line. As a result, the disease can quickly spread to the tooth root or in the bone which can be very expensive to treat.
