Surgical Procedures

We provide a wide array of surgeries ranging from routine spays and neuters all the way to complicated amputations. We do surgeries nearly every day during the week. If your pet has an ailment that you think may need surgical attention, give us a call today to set up an appointment for a pre-surgical exam and customized estimate!

(We require pre-surgical bloodwork for all spay procedures, feline declaws, and for any pet 7+ years or older.)

Spays and Neuters

We spay and neuter cats, dogs, and rabbits. We can even neuter goats and pigs!

Recovery time for spays is 10-14 days for female animals. For neuters, it is 7-10 days for male animals. For either surgery, your pet must be calm, kept indoors, and keep their cone on to ensure their suture site remains clean, dry, and not chewed on/scratched at by your pet.

Dental Cleanings

Just like it's important for you to get routine dental cleanings, it is important for your pet, too! Pets that don't receive any daily/weekly dental care can quickly develop severe dental disease. Advanced dental disease can lead to bacteria leaking into your pet's bloodstream and cause secondary infections and illnesses. Dental cleanings should be done at least once a year if you're not doing (at minimum) weekly oral care at home.

 

If your pet has yellow, brown, or black spots on their canines and back teeth, pungent breath, red/inflamed gums, or pain when eating, it's probably time to bring them in for a dental cleaning.

 

During cleanings, we examine your dog's mouth, scale their teeth (using hand and ultrasonic scalers like at your dentist), and remove plaque and tartar both above and below your pet's gum line. We also will do dental extractions to remove any rotting and infected teeth so your pet's mouth can heal. The number of extractions depend on how severe the dental disease is.

Once your pet has had a dental cleaning, it is super important to continue oral care at home with daily/weekly teeth brushing, water additives, dental treats, plaque removal supplements, or a combination of all four. Check out our online shop for recommendations on dental products you can use at home! 

Mass Removals

Pets of any age can develop masses. Masses are either benign (harmless) or malignant (dangerous). Benign masses are typically fatty masses that don't harm the animal, but sometimes they can be an eyesore. Other times, they grow to be very large or grow in an odd spot that may bother the animal. Both of these may be reasons why an owner could elect to surgically remove a benign mass.

 

Malignant masses are typically cancerous in nature and must be removed quickly. We can remove most malignant masses, but in rare cases, the type of cancer and/or mass location may require removal by a specialist that we refer you to.

If a mass is unknown to be either malignant or benign, we can still remove it and send it out to a board certified pathologist for testing.

Amputations

An amputation is a surgical procedure where a pet's limb is removed due to health reasons, or for aesthetics. We perform many types of amputations: declawing cats (amputating the end bones of a cat's toes/paws), tail docking on dogs (removing newborn puppies' tails for aesthetic purposes), and dewclaw removal (removing all dewclaws on a dog, either for aesthetic purposes or safety purposes). We also do health-based amputations due to cancers, chronic conditions, or injuries.
