Surgical Services We offer various surgical services such as spay/neuter, dental cleaning, foreign body removal, bladder stone removal and others.
Spay/Neuter We do spay/neuter surgery on Monday's and Wednesday's. Please contact the office to book an appointment for you pet if he or she needs to be spayed/neutered. We ask that you do not feed your pet any food after 10 pm the night before surgery. Water is ok at all times. Drop off is between 8-9 am the morning of surgery, and we call you in the afternoon when your pet is ready to go home (pickup can be anytime between 1-5 pm). Spay/neuter surgery is done using a CO2 laser with the exception of cat neuters.
Cat Declawing We offer declaw surgery for cats for those who are interested in getting their cat declawed. The declaws are done using the CO2 laser which makes the procedure less painful and aids in quicker recovery. We recommend getting your cat declawed around 6 months of age. The declaws are dropped off in the morning between 8-9 am and stay one night overnight. They can go home the following day at anytime. Please bring a small amount of your cats food so we do not need to change his/her diet. We send the declaws home with a small bag of yesterdays news post surgical. We ask that you use this litter for approximately 7-10 days. Watch out for any signs of heat, swelling or limping in the paws. This can be signs of an infection and you should let us know.
What to expect when bringing your pet home after surgery You can expect that your pet is going to be slightly groggy and more tired than usual. Please keep in mind that your pet did just undergo a surgical procedure and was under the effects of an anaesthetic. Offer a small amount of food and water but do not be surprised if your pet does not want to eat or drink the first night. It can be common for your pet to be nauseous after the anaesthetic and sometimes even vomit. If this happens do not be alarmed but just monitor your pet and let us know if the vomitting persists for more than 24 hours. Please do not allow your pet to lick at their incision. They are at risk of skin irritation and infection from licking as well as loosening up or chewing out stitches. We do offer elizabethan collars for your pet, or another option is to use a t-shirt to cover the area to prevent them from licking. If you are ever unsure about the way your pets incision looks you may take a picture and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, or if you have any questions at any time please do not hesitate to ask.
Radiology & Ultrasound We do offer x-ray service for both small animal and equine. Please contact the office to book an appointment or if you are interested in a quote. We also offer limited ultrasound service for various diagnostics such as pregnancy check.
