Abdominal exploratory surgery allows us to investigate and address underlying abdominal issues such as organ abnormalities, tumors, and trauma.


Cesarean sections may be performed to safely deliver puppies or kittens when natural birth is not possible or poses risks to the mother or offspring.


Limb amputations may be recommended in cases of severe injury, cancer, or other conditions affecting your pet’s mobility and quality of life.

MMP & Orthopedic Procedures:

Our veterinary surgeons are skilled in performing orthopedic procedures, including the Modified Maquet Procedure (MMP), fracture repairs, and joint surgeries to restore mobility and alleviate pain.

Ocular Procedures:

Surgical interventions such as eyelid tumor removals, entropion corrections, and enucleations are performed to address eye-related issues and improve your pet’s ocular health.

Dental surgeries, including tooth extractions, gum disease treatment, and jaw fracture repairs, are vital for maintaining your pet’s oral health and overall well-being.
