General & Advanced Surgery

Here at Family Pet Clinic, we take great pride in the safety and success of the surgical procedure that we perform. We know pet owners can get anxious when they hear their pet may have to undergo surgery, which is why we work with owners to discuss surgical plans that are best for your pet. Before, during and after the procedure, we make it one of our top priorities to make sure you as the owner is informed about the progress of your pet’s surgery. 

Before surgery, we will set up a meeting with you to discuss surgery options and help you select a plan best suited for your pet. At this time we will also perform blood work so that we know how to properly sedate your pet. Throughout this process, we highly encourage you to ask any questions that you may have. 

During surgery, your pet will be carefully monitored by a highly trained veterinary technician. This individual is trained to make sure that your pet’s vitals are proper and help manage pain after surgery. 

After surgery, your pet will be carefully monitored. In some instances, pets may go home the same day as surgery. Some pets may stay overnight so that we may carefully monitor their initial recovery process. Before your pet goes home, we will always discuss post-operative care instructions with you. 

Our medical team has in-depth experience with all of the following procedures below: 

  • Spay/neuter procedure is the removal of sex organs to protect pets against disease and prevent them from being territorial, aggressive and naughty. This procedure is extremely common for all household dogs and cats. 
  • Soft-tissue Surgery includes spay/neuter procedure, mass removal, trauma and laceration repair, hernia repair, bladder stone removal, and more. Essentially, these are any procedure that does not deal with the bone structure.
  • Surgical Oncology for any pet with cancer, we highly recommend surgical oncology. The goal of this is to stop or slow the spread of cancer in the body and improve the overall quality of life for your pet. 
  • Mass Removal is recommended when abnormal lumps or bumps are discovered on a pet. From here we can do a test to see if the mass is cancerous or not. If it is found to be cancerous, we will discuss plans to remove it. If it is Benin, we will remove it if it poses discomfort for your pet. 
  • Gastrointestinal Procedures are performed to provide relief to the stomach and gastrointestinal areas. Common signs of gastrointestinal diseases include vomiting, weight loss, diarrhea, bloating, pain and loss of appetite. 
  • Splenectomy Surgery is the removal of the spleen. This procedure is a last resort and only done when other treatment methods are not working. 
  • Foreign Body Removal is performed when a foreign object has been swallowed or consumed and can’t safely pass through the anus. 
  • C-sections are performed to ensure females deliver litters safely.
