The most common type of surgical procedure that we perform at our practice is a spay/ neuter procedure. As you no doubt already know, this procedure sterilizes your dog or cat. Most dogs and cats will get this procedure when they are puppies or kittens. Cats and dogs must go through this procedure to reduce the number of feral animals running wild. It is an outpatient procedure, so your pet should be able to go home by the end of the day.
Tumor Removal Surgery
Perhaps the second most common type of surgical procedure that we offer is tumor removal surgery. Cats and dogs develop masses from time to time. A majority of them are benign but some are malignant. Depending on the size and location of the tumor, these procedures may be out-patient or in-patient. Additional testing of the tumor is always offered to find out if it is cancerous. Further treatment may be suggested depending on these results.
Other Types Of Veterinary Surgery
We also perform many other types of surgery, including abdominal exploratories, orthopedic surgery, foreign body removal to name a few. If you think your pet may need a surgical procedure, go ahead and bring them in. Our veterinarian will examine your pet and let you know what surgical procedure they may need.
