We are very proud to offer surgery services which are performed right here at our clinic. Routine spays and neuters as well as growth removals, intestinal foreign body removal, cystotomy (opening the urinary bladder) and repair of canine ACL ruptures (Anterior Cruciate Ligament).
A comprehensive physical exam is performed on the patient prior to anesthesia to determine the individual health status. Anesthetics are chosen depending on the patient’s individual needs depending on age and weight.
A pre-anesthetic blood screen is highly recommended in all patients to also verify that the patient does not have a pre-existing organ dysfunction and is healthy enough to withstand an anesthesia and ensure no underlying disease is present. We highly recommend in all patients but make it optional in patients under 7 years old but is mandatory in all animals 7 years and older before going under general anesthesia.

Our doctors and technical staff care for your pet and follow standard sterilization techniques. Every procedure is carefully monitored by a trained technician as well as a multi-parameter monitor which gives us real time information on ECG, pulse, blood oxygen saturation levels, blood pressure and temperature during the procedure. After surgery recovery care is provided, as well as prophylactic medications for infection and pain management therapy. Each owner will leave with at home instructions to help the healing and recovery process.
