Surgical Services

Surgical procedures come in many forms. Some procedures are elective- such as spaying, neutering, certain lump removals etc. Other procedures are done out of necessity such as wound repairs, exploratory surgery, foreign body retrieval etc. The difference between these two groups is not always clear cut or obvious. In deciding to proceed with surgery, the risks and benefits of the procedure must be examined. In addition to the procedure itself, the anesthetic, monitoring and aftercare should also be considered. An initial assessment and consultation between you, the Pet Owner, and the Veterinarian will allow you to address these and any other concerns you may have, and to assist you in making these important decisions regarding the care of your pet.
