Surgical Services For Your Pet
Our experienced veterinarians provide many surgical services, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet closely during surgery, with highly trained staff using top-of-the-line monitoring equipment, and provide intra-op and post-op pain control to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
Routine and Advanced Veterinary Surgery
Our veterinarians provide a wide range of surgical services, including routine spays and neuters, soft-tissue surgery (such as mass removals, gastro-intestinal surgery, bladder surgery, etc.) and orthopedic surgeries (such as fracture repairs and surgery for ruptured cranial cruciate ligament).
We are proud to offer surgical services to dogs, cats, and exotic pets.
Elective and Major Surgery
We provide both elective surgeries and major surgeries for our patients. Our team of veterinarians and technical 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 to ensure we are together picking the best treatment plan, and that you are prepared for any procedure your pet may undergo in our care.
Cruciate Ligament Rupture
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, though sometimes radiographs (x-rays) are necessary to rule out other causes.
