We take anesthesia cases very seriously and utilize a safe, multi-modal approach for each animal we treat. We use a combination of pre-op assessments, modern anesthetic agents, and the latest anesthetic monitoring equipment to keep your pet safe and the risks of surgery low. Our recovering pet patients have fewer side effects, complete pain relief, and faster postoperative recovery.

Soft Tissue Surgery

Our veterinarians are experienced in various soft tissue pet surgeries, the most routinely performed procedures being spay/neuters and mass/tumor removals. Other examples of veterinary soft tissue surgeries include intestinal foreign body removal, laceration and wound repair, eye surgery, specialized surgeries, perineal urethrostomy, mastectomy, and splenectomy.

Dental Surgery

Family pets need regular dental checkups to ensure good oral health. But even with good oral hygiene and regular cleanings, your pet may require a dental extraction as they age. If your pet needs dental surgery or dental cleaning, we administer anesthesia to allow for comprehensive access to the teeth, gums, and oral tissues. Anesthesia makes it possible to perform dental procedures with less stress and pain for your pet.

Oral Surgery

Oral neoplasia has been reported to account for 6% to 7% of all canine cancer and 3% of all feline cancers. We perform incisional and excisional biopsies and work with the best veterinary oral pathologist to help diagnose and treat your pet's oral cancer. A few of the other oral surgeries we perform include cleft palate surgery, soft tissue trauma repair, salivary surgery, and cheiloplasty.


Known as the ACL in humans, CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) repair is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed. Cruciate ligament tears in a dog’s knee are quite common. Tearing this ligament causes instability in the knee joint, leading to abnormal movement and debilitating arthritis if left untreated.
