Surgical Procedures

We understand that not all surgeries can be planned ahead of time, our team will work with you to discuss all the treatment options available to you and your pet so you can make an informed decision on your pet's care. Your pet will receive a full physical examination and other diagnostics might be needed so that our team can provide gold standard care to your precious family member.

Common reasons for pet surgery: 

  • Foreign Body Removal (abdominal exploratory)
  • Spay and Neuter
  • Soft Tissue Trauma 
  • Orthopedics
  • Tumor or skin biopsy
  • Bloat/GDV and stomach tacking
  • Removal of spleen (Splenectomy)
  • Bladder stone removal (cystotomy)
  • Urinary Blockage/ Urethral obstruction relief

What can you expect if your pet needs surgery?

Animal surgery can be very similar to surgery for humans.  Sometimes triage and stabilization is needed immediately for some disease processes.  After our veterinarian assesses your pet and prepares for initial diagnostics that might include blood work and diagnostic imaging, a full treatment plan can be prepared to best manage your pet's illness.  In some cases, overnight care may be necessary. 

We believe that pain management is a critical aspect of all phases of your pet's stay.  We make an added effort to provide gold standard care and superior patient comfort. At the completion of surgery, you will be kept up to date by a member of our team to talk about next steps and will be provided with all after-care instructions and medications for your pet. Your primary veterinarian will receive medical records so they can provide the best follow-up care if needed.
