Our veterinarians provide many surgical services at our clinic ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome, we occasionally refer them to specialists (board-certified veterinary surgeons) to perform complex operations when advanced equipment or training will be beneficial. Our veterinary team will take precautions to ensure that your pet receives a safe anesthetic. We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide pain medication during recovery.
Spay and Neuter
Spaying (the procedure which prevents female animals from becoming pregnant and reproducing) and neutering (the procedure which prevents male animals from reproducing) your pet has many benefits. Not only can it help your dog or cat live a longer and healthier life, but neutering can also reduce or eliminate your pet’s risk for prostate and testicular cancer as well as sexually transmitted diseases.
Neutering does not change your pet’s personality but will help to reduce or hopefully eliminate unwanted or embarrassing behaviour such as roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying. In addition, neutering or spaying your pet will help control the overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.
