We believe in utilizing the highest level of medical technology, and our surgeons are experienced and highly trained. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery. We want to assure you that your pet is in good hands and that we will do everything to provide the best care possible. We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet's surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures. Our surgical team uses the same safety measures as in human hospitals, this includes pre-anesthetic exams and diagnostics to ensure your pet is healthy enough for their procedure.
