Soft Tissue Surgery
Spaying, is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the ovaries and uterus. This procedure needs to be performed with the pet under anesthesia. Many pet owners have skepticism when it comes to spaying their dog or cat. However, the procedure provides your pet with many benefits such as protection against diseases, infections, dog and cat overpopulation control.
We follow strict protocols and continually monitor your pet’s vital signs to help ensure her safety. 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.
Similar to spaying, neutering, involves removing the testicles, of a male dog or cat. This procedure also requires that your dog or cat be put under anesthesia, which we closely follow through our patient monitoring protocol. You can expect many benefits from neutering your pet including reducing or eliminating the risk of prostate and testicular cancer, roaming, aggressive behavior, sex drive, and spraying.

Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone and we perform many of these surgeries at our clinic. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets, for example, if your dog suffers from frequent ear infections, surgical intervention can reduce their occurrence by improving airflow into the ear canal. The removal of masses, or lumps is probably the most frequent soft tissue surgery performed. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (nonharmful); 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.
Please contact us if you’d like to discuss how soft tissue surgery might be able to help your pet.
We perform many types of orthopedic (bone) surgeries in our clinic, many that are related to hip dysplasia, disc surgery, or leg fractures. The most common of these surgeries that are presented at our veterinary center are leg fractures. Because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome, we occasionally will refer them to a board-certified orthopedic surgeon to perform back surgery and other very complex surgeries.
If you have any questions about these procedures or if you think your pet might benefit from them, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
