Our state-of-the-art surgical suite has the most advanced surgical equipment. We monitor the patient’s vital signs, including blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen saturation during surgery. We utilize the best available inhalant anesthetics (Sevoflurane) to provide the safest anesthetic experience, especially for our older or high-risk patients (liver, kidney, or heart disease). We use thermoregulated heating pads to help maintain body temperature during surgery, which helps reduce trauma and improve the overall recovery from surgery. After surgery, pets are placed in warmed cages to ensure that thermoregulation is maintained after surgery. We are equipped to perform:
- Soft tissue surgeries – tumor removals, foxtail extractions, tail amputation, ear hematoma repair
- Orthopedic surgeries – fracture repair, tendon repair, dewclaw removal
- Gastrointestinal surgeries – foreign body removal, exploratory laparatomies
- Elective surgeries – spay, neuter, anal gland removal
A laser is a very intense beam of highly focused light. It can be used for very small, precise cuts for biopsy, eye surgery, or the removal of a tumor with fewer side effects. As it cuts, the laser automatically seals small blood vessels and nerve endings around the cut, which results in less bleeding and less pain. The benefits of laser surgery are tremendous:
- Decreased pain
- Decreased bleeding
- Diminished chance of infection
- Faster recovery for your pet
- Increased survival rate for cancer treatment.

Pets experience pain just like humans do. When your pet is experiencing a severe medical condition or suffering from an injury, they may require pain medication. We utilize pain management during many medical and all surgical procedures. Simply anesthetizing a pet does not reduce their pain. Proper pain management can help reduce the amount of stress and trauma your pet experiences, and helps speeds up their recovery time.
