Laser and Traditional Surgery Options for Your Pet
Our veterinarians and staff are highly skilled in performing a wide range of veterinary surgeries. In our modern surgical suite, we utilize the latest technology and safest anesthesia protocols. The procedures we perform include:
- TPLOs (anterior cruciate ligament repair)
- Mass and tumor removals
- Abdominal surgeries
- Wound repairs
- Luxating patella repairs
- Major back surgeries
Prior to your pet’s surgery, we will:
- Perform a complete examination
- Perform any necessary diagnostic testing and blood work
- Update any necessary vaccinations
- Discuss in detail the surgical procedure, including possible complications, risks, and recovery time
- Answer any questions or concerns you may have
Our skilled veterinary surgeons are also equipped to perform specialty surgeries to help keep your pet pain free and active. If your pet is exhibiting signs of pain or weakness in their rear legs, is limping or even experiencing paralysis, our experts can perform a thorough exam and diagnosis and offer the best solutions. We’ve achieved positive results for many pets and brought them back to their normal behavior and activity levels. Click on the links below to learn more about the surgical procedures we offer:
Prior to surgery, our highly trained veterinarians will place your pet under anesthesia and continue to monitor his or her vital signs throughout the procedure. After surgery, your pet will be moved to our ICU area and continue to be carefully monitored until he or she has completely recovered from sedation.
CO2 Laser Surgery
When possible, we perform CO2 laser surgery on our veterinary patients. This advanced surgical method provides increased precision, control, and enhanced visibility of the treatment area. By performing surgeries using laser technology, we are able to simplify procedures, minimize risk, and reduce bleeding and pain, thereby reducing recovery time.
To minimize your pet’s pain and discomfort, we offer pain management options before, during, and after surgery. These drugs will likely be administered intravenously before and during your pet’s surgery and by mouth (via pills) after surgery.
