Pet Surgery Services
We provide many surgical services at our hospital including routine spays and neuters, soft-tissue and orthopedic surgeries.
Elective and Majory Surgery
We provide both elective surgeries and major surgeries for our patients. Our team of veterinarians and nursing staff are skilled and experienced, and our compassion for animals aids us in providing excellent care and ensuring our patients are as comfortable as possible before, during, and after their procedures. Answering your questions about your pet's care is important to us too, and we'll be happy to discuss your pet's specific needs with you.
Spaying and Neutering
Spaying or neutering your pet eliminates unwanted pregnancies and provides many health benefits. In females, spaying avoids the probability of a serious and potentially fatal uterine infection in later years; it also reduces the chance of mammary cancer. In males, neutering reduces the chance of cancer of the testicles and prostate, and lessens the chance of injury due to fighting or misadventure by roaming. The recommended age varies by species and breed, but is typically in the neighbourhood of six months. Please speak with your veterinarian about the appropriate age for your pet.
Cruciate Rupture Repair
The cranial cruciate ligament in dogs is the same as the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in humans. Diagnosis of a suspected injury is usually based on physical examination and radiography (x-rays). For complicated injuries and partial tears, a referral for exploratory surgery or arthroscopy (keyhole surgery) may be recommended.
Dr. Orchard and Dr. Cory perform Tightrope Repair. They are proud to bring this service to Orchard Veterinary Care.
We will explain all the options available for your pet, and provide you with an estimate of the costs and our professional assessment of your pet's long-term prognosis for each.
