Surgery Services

Our experienced veterinarian provides many surgical services at our clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome, we occasionally refer them to specialists (board-certified veterinary surgeons) to perform complex operations when advanced equipment or training will be beneficial. Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and highly recommend preanesthetic testing before surgery. We monitor your pet during surgery and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.

SPAYING

Spaying your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents female animals from becoming pregnant and reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. Spaying will not change your pet’s personality.

By spaying your female pet, you are protecting her against potentially deadly diseases, including bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer. You also will not have to worry about her going into heat. This means avoiding the mess that often accompanies the heat cycle in female dogs and the pacing and crying that happens with female cats. In addition, spaying your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Spaying, which involves removing the ovaries and uterus, is a surgical procedure and does need to be performed with the pet under anesthesia. We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pet’s vital signs to help ensure her safety. To set up an appointment to have your pet spayed or to learn more about this procedure, call or visit our hospital. If you are struggling with the decision of whether to spay your pet, please call us so we can discuss your concerns.

Soft Tissue Surgery

We perform many types of soft tissue surgeries at our clinic. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets.

Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses, or lumps. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (non-harmful); however, occasionally they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous.

Surgery may be needed to remove bladder stones causing pain and damage to the urinary bladder; explore the abdominal cavity to search for and remove a foreign object trapped inside the stomach or intestines; or to clean up and suture wounds to skin and muscle damaged by traumatic injury.

Please contact us if you want to discuss how soft tissue surgery may be able to help your pet.

Stem Cell Therapy

anti-stem cell treatment
Stem cells are powerful healing cells that are found in your pet’s body and can become other types of cells. There are many stem cells in fat tissue, however they are asleep. Stem cell therapy allows our veterinarian to isolate cells from your pet’s own (autologous) fat tissue, wake them up, and reintroduce them directly into damaged areas. Because it uses the pet’s own repair cells, the treatment is very low risk. It offers an all-natural alternative to drugs and steroids. Some treatments can last a lifetime for a pet, but it depends on your pet’s injury or disease. In many cases owners elect to bank cells for future use in case another treatment is necessary.
