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. Almost all of our surgeries are performed with a CO2 laser, rather than with a scalpel. This results in less bleeding and tissue trauma. It also seals the nerve endings. The overall result is less blood loss, and a patient that is more comfortable following surgery, then with a traditional scalpel. 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.
