We appreciate that surgery can be an anxious and worrisome experience for you and for your pet. We strive to ensure your pet’s interaction with us is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

When surgery is required, we offer you convenient access to routine procedures, such as spay/neuter, tumor removal, laceration and wound repair, to more complex procedures such as splenectomies and orthopedic repairs.
Beyond routine procedures, we offer in-house access to board-certified surgeries through our close association with Dr. Kathy Collins for you convenience and peace of mind. Amongst many other skills, Dr. Collins is an expert in TPLOs for knee repairs in large-breed dogs

- Daily cage cleaning and disinfecting
- And of course, LOTS of TLC throughout the day.
