Surgical Service

Routine surgical procedures are normal day to day procedures. Typically our routine surgical patients are hospitalized overnight for 24 hour post surgery monitoring. The next morning one of our doctors preforms a physical examination and the patient is released that afternoon.

  • Spay and Neuter Procedures
  • Declaws
  • Ear Trims
  • Dental Cleanings

Orthopedic Surgeries

Orthopedic surgical procedures are less common and are much more labor intensive. This also translates into a longer recovery time for the patient. Typically our orthopedic surgical patients are hospitalized for 7 to 14 days depending on the procedure. During this time we work with the patients in the areas of physical therapy as well as pain management.

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Repair
  • Bone Pinning, Plating, and Kurschner Apparatus Repair
  • Shoulder and Elbow Abnormality Corrections
  • Luxating Patellar Repair

Soft Tissue Surgeries

Over the past 30 years, our veterinarians have developed skills in numerous soft tissue proceds.With experience and specialized training, we are able to offer surgical services for most conditions that require surgery to correct. We provide 24 hour medical case management following every surgery to ensure that each patient receives the best care possible. Pain management and anesthesia is tailor made for every patient to provide the highest level of comfort and safety. We also have LigaSure, a cutting and ligating system that helps minimize bleeding and shortens surgery time. It is used in many of our major abdominal mass removals and soft palate resections.
