Comprehensive Surgical Services

When your pet requires surgical intervention, you can count on our skilled veterinarians to deliver exceptional care. We offer various soft tissue surgeries to address medical conditions and improve your pet’s quality of life. Some of the procedures we routinely perform include:

  • Spaying and Neutering: These routine surgeries are essential for controlling pet populations and preventing specific health issues, including reproductive cancers and behavioral problems.
  • Tumor Removals: Whether benign or malignant, tumors can significantly impact your pet’s health. Our surgical expertise ensures safe and effective removal, promoting your pet’s overall well-being.
  • Abdominal Explorations with Foreign Body Removals: Pets are curious creatures, and sometimes they ingest objects that can cause serious complications. Our veterinarians are skilled in abdominal exploratory surgeries to identify and remove foreign bodies, preventing intestinal obstructions and other life-threatening conditions.
  • Splenectomies: In cases of splenic tumors or trauma, a splenectomy may be necessary to alleviate pain and prevent complications. Our team is proficient in performing this procedure with precision and care.

  • They have a medical condition that cannot be effectively managed with medication or other non-invasive treatments
