SOFT TISSUE SURGERY 

Our well-equipped surgery suite allows us to offer a wide variety of surgical procedures.  All surgery patients are monitored with cardiac and respiratory monitors and receive fluid and heat support. We use state-of-the-art anesthetics and pain medication, tailored to your pet’s particular needs.  Screening bloodwork is performed before any surgery to be sure your pet is healthy enough to undergo surgery.

Soft Tissue Surgery:

From lumps and bumps that need removal, wounds that need suturing, and major abdominal surgeries for emergencies including dystocia (birthing problems), intestinal obstruction or bladder stones, we can tackle an array of surgical situations. Soft tissue surgery encompasses anything to do with skin, muscles and internal organs as well as eyelids, ears and noses. Here are some of the surgeries we commonly perform:
