Our talented staff and state-of-the-art surgical suite allow us to perform a vast array of sophisticated surgical procedures.  Whether the procedure is a routine spay/neuter or a complex surgical case, your loved one will be in experienced caring hands.  Our staff uses the most advanced equipment in the field to ensure our patients receive the highest level of care possible.

Ensuring the safety of your love one: We understand that any surgical procedure has the potential for complications. Because of this, every patient is treated with the utmost diligence and care. During general anesthesia, patient's vitals are monitored closely by a trained animal health technician and pain is always assessed. We tailor each anesthetic protocol to your pet's specific needs as well as offer in-house pre-surgical bloodwork to diagnose any underlying condition prior to anesthesia.

*Experience the difference

Cutting Edge Laser Surgery: The surgical laser helps us provide your pet with reduced bleeding, pain and swelling, as well as a quicker recovery time.  Unlike a scalpel, there is no actual contact between the laser and surgical site. This eliminates trauma to the patient’s tissues, and the high temperature of the laser’s energy acts as an antibacterial agent, thus preventing infections.

We also offer Cutting Edge Laser Therapy.  Please see our Laser Therapy page for further information on this amazing treatment option! 

Digital Radiology (X-rays): With digital radiology, we no longer use x-ray film or toxic developing chemicals. When the image is taken, it immediately appears on a high-resolution monitor. With digital capabilities previously only found in human hospitals, we are able to adjust the color and size of the image to best evaluate the patient without taking multiple images. Therefore, your pet is exposed to less radiation. 

The greater accuracy and flexibility of this equipment allows us to see lesions, such as small tumors or hairline fractures, that were not visible with developed film. This enables earlier diagnosis and treatment for your pet’s illnesses or diseases. It also means your pet’s image can be sent instantly to veterinary specialists anywhere in the world, giving you access to expert opinions and medical advice!
