Surgical Services

Our veterinarians provide 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 will take precautions to ensure that your pet receives a safe anesthetic. We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide pain medication during recovery.

Spaying and Neutering

Spaying and Neutering Services

If you do not plan to breed your cat or dog, you should seriously consider having them spayed or neutered. Unexpected breeding accounts for many of the animals surrendered to shelters and humane societies.

Spaying and neutering can help prevent unwanted behavior such as aggression and urine marking. It can also significantly reduce the risk of certain diseases.

The procedure is usually performed after six months of age. It requires full general anesthesia, but your pet will go home the same day as the surgery.
