Spay and Neuter

If you have a new pet or are considering having an older pet fixed, please learn about the importance of spay and neuter services for cats and dogs.

When you spay or neuter your pets, you set them up for a lifetime of greater health and happiness. When your pets are not overcome by their biological urges, they will be calmer and happier.

For females, spaying reduces the likelihood of mammary cancer and uterine infections. Spaying also prevents your pet from mating and introducing more animals into a city that is already overcrowded with unwanted pets. With local shelters crowded, there is simply no room for additional pets so we urge you to get your cat or dog fixed.

Neutering male pets not only reduces their risk of prostate cancer, but also decreases aggression, marking, and spraying. You will spend less time cleaning up after your male cat or dog, and experience fewer behavioral problems when you get them fixed.

Finally, you will enjoy your pets more when they are fixed. Male pets that are not fixed are more likely to escape or roam, which increases their risk of getting lost, run over, or in a fight. Female pets that are spayed will not go into heat, during which time they yowl and urinate around the house.

We perform these procedures in a clean and sterile environment. Our highly trained staff will monitor your pet’s vital signs throughout the entire procedure, making sure they are safe and stable. They will be sent home with appropriate pain medications, allowing them to heal comfortably. Call us today to schedule your pet’s procedure.

Soft Tissue Surgery

We perform many types of soft tissue surgeries at our hospital. Soft tissue surgeries are those that are not associated with bone. These surgeries can provide many benefits to pets.

Probably the most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses or lumps. Once removed and tested, most of these masses are benign (non-harmful); however, they are occasionally more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump are necessary to improve your pet’s outcome if the mass is cancerous.

Dental Cleanings and Extractions

The comprehensive oral health assessment and treatment is a same-day outpatient procedure. Your pet will be placed under general anesthesia with a protected airway. Once your pet is asleep, your veterinarian will perform a complete oral health assessment. This includes probing each tooth and assessing gingivitis. It also includes locating oral tumors, ulcerations, or foreign bodies (sticks, rope, fur). The teeth are cleaned with an ultrasonic scaler and then polished.

Dental X-rays are recommended to detect dental disease that doesn’t meet the eye. There is often hidden disease below the gum line. Pathology below the gum line will be revealed through full mouth X-rays, which can only be performed under anesthesia.

If the dental disease is advanced, tooth extraction may be necessary. If this is the case, your veterinarian may use a local anesthetic in your pet’s mouth to ensure the best comfort possible. Our veterinarians are experienced in tooth extraction. Comfort and quick healing are a priority. Your pet will receive in-hospital pain control and will go home with pain medication as well. Your veterinarian will guide you on the use of antibiotics in dentistry. With infection, it is imperative to have antibiotic treatment.

If you are wondering about your pet’s oral health, schedule an appointment to have your dog or cat evaluated by one of our trained veterinarians.
