Comprehensive Surgical Care for Your Cat

  • Neuters and Spays: Neutering and spaying are important surgical procedures that offer numerous health benefits for your cat. Neutering male cats can prevent unwanted behaviors such as spraying and roaming while spaying female cats helps prevent uterine infections and reduces the risk of mammary cancer. Our skilled veterinarians perform these procedures with precision and care.
  • Tumor Removals: Tumors can develop in cats for various reasons, and early detection and removal are crucial for your cat’s health. Our surgical team is experienced in tumor removal surgeries, ensuring thorough removal and minimizing the risk of recurrence.
  • Bladder Stone Removal (Cystotomy): Bladder stones can cause discomfort and urinary issues for your cat. Our surgical team is proficient in performing cystotomy procedures to safely remove bladder stones, providing relief and preventing further complications.
  • Foreign Body Removals: Cats are curious creatures and may ingest foreign objects that can cause blockages or other serious issues. Our skilled veterinarians are equipped to perform foreign body removal surgeries to safely extract objects that may obstruct your cat’s digestive system.
  • Biopsies: When a mass or abnormal tissue is detected in your cat, a biopsy may be necessary to determine if it is benign or malignant. Our veterinarians perform biopsies with precision, ensuring accurate results and guiding further treatment options.
  • Wound Care: Cats can sustain injuries and wounds from accidents or fights with other animals. Our surgical team provides expert wound care services, including cleaning, suturing, and monitoring for infection, to promote proper healing and prevent complications.
  • Perineal Urethrostomy: This surgical procedure is sometimes necessary for male cats with urinary blockages or recurrent urinary issues. Perineal urethrostomy involves creating a new opening for the urethra to improve urine flow and prevent blockages.

Feline-Specific Anesthesia and Monitoring

Our team of skilled veterinarians and technicians is dedicated to monitoring your cat closely throughout the entire surgical procedure and into recovery. Your cat’s safety and well-being are our top priorities.
