    Benefits of Spay and Neuter
Your companion will live a longer, healthier life and you will experience fewer headaches if you get him or her spayed or neutered.
In females the chances of breast cancer is reduced by 95% and infection of the uterus is eliminated. In males prostate problems and testicular cancer in males is greatly reduced along with undesirable behavior. Frustration in resisting the natural urge to mate decreases and your companion will be less distracted, more easily trained, and a more contented member of your family. The animal's need to roam in search of a mate will lessen the chances that your pet will become lost, get into fights with other animals or be hit by a car. Messy heat cycles in females and attracting unwanted males attention will be not be an issue.The tendency to bite might lessen. However, your pet will still be protective of his home and family even after being altered. Aggression is different from protectiveness.Spraying, wailing, marking territory, or making inappropriate sexual approaches toward people or objects will decrease. The extra expense for food or veterinary care in the event of an unexpected litter of puppies or kittens will not happen!

GDV (Gastric Dilation-Volvulus)

   Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV) is a rapidly progressive life-threatening condition of dogs. The condition is commonly associated with large meals and causes the stomach to dilate, because of food and gas, and may get to a point where neither may be expelled. As the stomach begins to dilate and expand, the pressure in the stomach begins to increase. The increased pressure and size of the stomach may have several severe consequences. The entire body suffers from the poor ventilation leading to death of cells in many tissues. Additionally, the stomach can become dilated enough to rotate in the abdomen, a condition called volvulus. The rotation can lead to blockage in the blood supply to the spleen and the stomach. Most pets are in shock due to the effects on their entire body. The treatment of this condition involves stabilization of your pet, decompression of the stomach, and surgery to return the stomach to the normal position permanently (gastropexy). Abdominal organs will need to be evaluated for damage and treated appropriately as determined at the time of surgery.

Laparotomy (Abdominal Exploratory)

   During an exploratory laparotomy, every organ in the abdomen is inspected for abnormalities. Possible abnormalities found may include: foreign bodies in the stomach or intestines; tumors on any organ; stones in the kidneys or ureters; twisting of the stomach, intestines, or spleen; tears or openings in the abdominal wall or diaphragm, allowing organs to herniate (protrude) through the opening; inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis); stones in the gall bladder or bile duct; abscesses on any organ; or rupture of any organ.

Dental

   It’s estimated that 85 percent of all pets have periodontal disease by the time they are 3 years of age. Periodontal disease is a progressive disease of the supporting tissues surrounding teeth and the main cause of early tooth loss.

  Periodontal disease starts when bacteria combine with food particles to form plaque on the teeth. Within days, minerals in the saliva bond with the plaque to form tartar, a hard substance that adheres to the teeth. The bacteria work their way under the gums and cause gingivitis — inflammation of the gums. Once under the gums, bacteria destroy the supporting tissue around the tooth, leading to tooth loss. This condition is known as periodontitis. Gingivitis and periodontitis make up the changes that are referred to as periodontal disease. The bacteria associated with periodontal disease can also travel in the bloodstream to infect the heart, kidneys, and liver.

  A professional veterinary dental cleaning is the only way to remove tartar from the teeth and under the gum tissue to protect your pet’s health. So please come in for a Dental Estimate.

Thoracic Surgeries/Treatments
   Thoracic surgery is the repair of organs located in the thorax, or chest. The thoracic cavity lies between the neck and the diaphragm, and contains the heart and lungs (cardiopulmonary system), the esophagus, trachea, pleura, mediastinum, chest wall, and diaphragm. Our Thoracic surgeries we offer are:
  • Rib Stabilization
  • Pericardiectomy
  • Pleural Effusion 
Upper Airway Surgeries

   The upper airway of dogs and cats comprises the passages that air moves through on its way to the trachea (windpipe) and lungs. These passages include the nose, sinuses, pharynx, and larynx. There are many different problems that can affect the upper airway and compromise the flow of air. Brachycephalic dogs and cats are more prone to upper airway abnormalities, and can often have several different conditions together. A brachycephalic breed is one that has a shortened snout and face such as English Bulldogs, Pugs, Boston Terriers, and Persians. The conditions most often found in these breeds are stenotic nares, everted laryngeal saccules, and elongated soft palate. When these conditions compromise respiration, surgical intervention is necessary.

  • Soft Palate Resection
  • Nasal Fold Resection
