By spaying your female pet, you’re protecting her against potentially deadly diseases including bacterial infections, reproductive tract diseases, and several types of cancer.
By neutering your male pet, you’re reducing the risk or eliminating his risk for prostate and testicular cancer, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. Neutering will also reduce or eliminate undesirable and embarrassing behavior including roaming, fighting, humping, and spraying. In addition, neutering your pet will help control the dog and cat overpopulation problem, keeping more animals out of shelters.
Soft Tissue Surgery
The most common soft tissue surgery performed on pets is the removal of masses, or lumps. Most of these masses, once removed and tested, are found to be benign (nonharmful); however, occasionally they are more serious. Early removal and accurate diagnosis of a lump is necessary to improve the outcome in your pet if the mass is cancerous.
We perform many types of orthopedic (bone) surgeries in our clinic because we want to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome. We occasionally refer them to board-certified orthopedic surgeons to perform back surgery and other very complex surgeries.
