Surgery

General Surgery

In our continuing efforts to offer the highest quality veterinary medicine, we are pleased to provide a wide range of surgical services for our patients. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care for your pet’s surgical needs. We offer dental cleaning, with the best results achieved with anesthesia for complete cleaning and polish. A dental sealant is applied to delay plaque build-up. Tooth extractions are performed if indicated by dental x-rays and exam. Non-anesthesia dental care can be provided in some cooperative patients.

Spay

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 with no hope of finding their “forever home”.

Larger breeds may be spayed after maturity (12-24 months of age) to help promote healthy joint development and reduce some of the risks for his dysplasia.

Neuter

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.

Larger breeds may be neutered after maturity (12-24 months of age) to help promote healthy joint development and reduce some of the risks for his dysplasia.
