Surgical Services For Your Pet

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're protecting her against potentially deadly diseases, including bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer. You also won't 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 general anesthesia. We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pet's vital signs to help ensure her safety. Please see the descriptions under Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring for more information on what we do to keep your pet safe.

To set up an appointment to have your pet spayed or to learn more about this procedure, call or visit our clinic. If you are struggling with the decision of whether to spay your pet, please call us so we can discuss your concerns.

Neutering

Neutering your pet has many benefits. The procedure, which prevents male animals from reproducing, can help your dog or cat live a longer, healthier life. Neutering will not change your pet's personality.

By neutering your pet, you're reducing or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behavior, including roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying. In addition, neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.

Neutering, which involves removing the testicles, is a surgical procedure and does need to be performed with the pet under general anesthesia.

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.

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.

Other surgeries performed more commonly are wound repair (i.e. dog bite wounds, lacerations), eyelid correction, hernia repair and gastrointestinal surgery.

Please contact us if you'd like to discuss how soft tissue surgery might be able to help your pet.

Declaw Surgery

This surgery is a controversial one. It is elective. It changes a cat’s anatomy. This is NEVER to be performed on a dog. If a veterinarian tells you he/she will do this surgery on a dog…RUN FAST! We do not take this surgery lightly. It is important to know all the facts about this procedure and we are very open to discussion and helping you find another option for your pet if necessary.

There are at least three methods to declawing. We only perform this surgery with a very fine cautery tool. There is minimal bleeding and minimal swelling. We do not declaw with Resco Nail Trimmers or with surgical blades. You may hear laser declaw is the best way to declaw. We feel our method beats most (if not all) laser declaws.

We want the best results for our cat patients. They are provided strong pain medicine and a comfortable space to recover from surgery. We prefer to keep our patients in hospital for three nights. We see more problems with cats going home too soon after surgery and returning with swollen toes, because they feel so normal and don’t rest their feet.

Our veterinarians took an oath to “first, do no harm” and we believe that sometimes, this surgery is needed to strengthen the human-pet bond. A cat’s person is happier when the house is not in shreds. Cats are happier when their feet do not hurt from a less-than-standard declaw surgery.

Please contact us if you'd like to discuss declaw surgery for your pet.
