Trustworthy and Compassionate Veterinary Surgery for Your Beloved Pet
During invasive surgery procedures, your pet’s vital signs, blood pressure, and hydration levels are carefully monitored by state-registered and highly trained technicians. We care about the comfort of your pet and offer the latest in pre- and post-surgical pain management treatments.
We offer a full range of abdominal veterinary surgical procedures, including:
- Cystotomy: Cystotomy is a type of bladder surgery. Most pets need a cystotomy because they suffer from struvite or calcium bladder stones due to chronic urinary tract infections (UTIs). If your pet suffers from bladder stones, our vets may recommend a cystotomy to relieve their condition right away.
- Gastropexy: Gastropexy surgery is sometimes performed in large dog breeds because they are prone to gastric dilation and volvulus (GDV), or better known as bloat. This condition causes the stomach to twist in on itself, preventing the escape of gas and fluids. Without treatment, it can quickly become life-threatening.
- Exploratory surgery: Our team can perform exploratory surgery to examine the contents of your pet’s gastrointestinal tract, collect biopsies, and remove tumors. If your pet suffers from chronic diarrhea, vomiting, or weight loss, we may suggest exploratory surgery to determine the cause.
- Gastric foreign body removal: If your pet ate something that it shouldn’t have, we might need to perform gastric foreign body removal surgery. Failure to remove a foreign object can cause life-threatening complications, so if you suspect your pet has eaten something bad, contact us right away.
Soft and Deep Tissue Surgery
Our soft and deep tissue veterinary surgery services include:
- Mass removals: If your pet has been diagnosed with a skin tumor or mass, we can perform surgery to remove it or send it to a lab for further testing. It’s easier for our vets to remove masses when they are small, so if you notice any strange lumps beneath your pet’s skin, call us today.
- Laceration repairs: Lacerations in pets may be superficial or deep, with damage to nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and tendons. We can check your pet for internal injuries and repair lacerations using skin staples or sutures (stitches). Even if you think your pet’s injury is minor, seeing a vet for care as soon as possible is important to prevent infections and other complications.
- Anal sacculectomy: A pet’s anal sacs may become diseased from obesity, nerve dysfunction, and abnormal secretions. If your pet is scooting, licking, or biting at its anal area, we may recommend a sacculectomy to remove its anal sacs.
- Stenotic nares surgery: Stenotic nares are a genetic condition caused by malformed cartilage in your pet’s nose. This condition is common in brachycephalic breeds such as the pug, Pekingese, and Boston terrier. If your pet seems to have trouble breathing during exercise and play, we can surgically correct stenotic nares to help improve its quality of life.
- Soft palate surgery: When the tissue in your pet’s mouth grows too large for its head, we can perform soft tissue surgery to help it breathe normally again.
- Cherry Eye Surgery: Cherry eye in dogs is a frequent issue where the tear gland of the third eyelid prolapses, potentially causing discomfort and vision issues if not addressed. Our experienced veterinary team conducts a prompt procedure under anesthesia, repositioning and securing the gland with dissolvable stitches. Anticipate a two-week recovery period with thorough post-operative care to ensure your dog’s successful healing.
Enucleation and Amputations
If your pet suffers from uncontrollable pain in their eye or limb, our vets may suggest an enucleation or amputation to help them feel more comfortable. Most pets recover from these procedures well and will have a much better quality of life once fully healed.
During your pet’s recovery of any of these surgical procedures, we use added services such as Class IV Cold laser, acupuncture, and aromatherapy to increase circulation and promote healing.
You can rest assured your pet will be monitored by one of our team members until they are ready to go home (they will not be left alone).
