There are general surgeries that are routinely recommended for your pet. We also recommend screening your pet with pre-anesthetic bloodwork prior to surgery in order for safety and to allow us to tailor anesthesia to your pet’s specific needs. The routine general surgeries performed at our practice include Spay (“fixing” a female dog), Neuter (“fixing” and male dog), and soft tissue surgeries, such as, growth/mass removal (removing “lumps and bumps”). We also have well-trained veterinary and technical staff to monitor and care for your pet before, during, and after surgery.
Spay: Removing the uterus and ovaries of a female dog under general anesthesia. A spay is recommended in order to prevent serious, life-threatening bacterial infections, reproductive tract disease, and various types of cancer.
Neuter: Removing the testicles of a male dog under general anesthesia. A neuter is recommended to prevent serious diseases of the reproductive tract and various types of cancer.
Growth/Mass Removal: Removal of growths (“lumps and bumps”) is essential for the accurate testing and diagnosis of both cancerous and non-cancerous growths/masses.
