We Offer Surgical Services for Greenville's Small Pets
We know from experience that any surgical procedure can be almost as stressful for the person as it is for the pet. Our well-trained and experienced staff will make sure you understand the diagnosis, procedure, and likely outcome of any surgical procedure our veterinarians recommend for your pet.
Spaying or Neutering
Spaying is the surgical procedure that removes a female dog’s or cat’s ovaries and uterus in order to prevent her from becoming pregnant. This procedure is very safe and will protect your pet from pregnancies. We suggest scheduling this surgery before their first heat cycle, which will help prevent certain types of cancers.
Neutering is the surgical procedure that removes a male dog’s or cat’s testicles in order to prevent him from breeding. While this procedure will not change your pet’s personality, it can reduce dangerous or embarrassing behaviors related to breeding urges.
Neutering can also help protect your male pet from testicular cancer and helps decrease the number of unwanted pets in shelters. We suggest scheduling this surgery after your pet is 6 months of age.
Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgery refers to any surgical procedure that is not performed on bone. Instead, soft tissue surgery involves organs or tissues in your pet’s body.
Soft tissue surgery can also be used to correct some eye problems, recurrent ear infections in some dogs, and removing masses and digestive impactions for pets that have eaten a non-food item that has become stuck in the digestive tract.
Our veterinarians are skilled and experienced in performing routine orthopedic procedures commonly performed in general practice. Some examples of these procedures are:
- Joint salvage
- Fracture stabilization
- Small dog ligament repair
When we feel it’s necessary, our veterinarians will refer certain cases to a board certified orthopaedic surgeon to get the best possible result for your pet.
We highly recommend having pre-surgical bloodwork, an intravenous-catheter, and fluid therapy before any surgery. This will help keep your pet stable during surgery. If you have a senior pet (over the age of 7), we do require these to safely perform a surgery.
