Soft Tissue Procedures

We offer soft tissue surgical treatment options for dogs and cats with gastrointestinal, respiratory, and cardiothoracic conditions, as well as ear, nose and throat conditions. Our veterinarians have substantial experience in emergency and routine procedures to treat a wide range of congenital defects or acquired conditions. 

Ocular Procedures

Our veterinarians offer vision care and the diagnosis and treatment of eye and eyelid disorders for cats, dogs, and small animals. Some of the most common ocular procedures we perform include cataract surgery, entropion surgery, ectropion surgery, eyelid tumor removal, cherry eye surgery, and exenteration of the orbit.


Orthopedic surgery for pets consists of surgical procedures that address the joints and skeletal system, as well as the associated soft tissues, including muscles, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. Our advanced imaging and diagnostic tools help us provide accurate and effective orthopedic diagnosis.


A C-section (caesarean section), is major surgery during which puppies or kittens are removed from the uterus of a dog or cat. We perform c-sections in emergency cases where the animal has difficulty giving birth naturally. Most animals recover quickly and without complication from this procedure.
