Spay/Neuter/Declaw:

To prevent unwanted behavior and many medical problems we recommend spaying or neutering your pet between the ages of five to six months. If your pet is older and not spayed or neutered we recommend having the procedure done as soon as possible because as pets age medical problems can arise.

Declawing, on the front paws only, can be done at any age over eight weeks. We routinely perform declawing at the same time as the spaying and neutering. We also have a surgical laser which we recommend using for declawing as well as other surgical procedures.

Several different pain management packages have been developed by our doctors to provide the appropriate level of pain control to meet your needs and the needs of your pet.

  • Surgical Laser

We are pleased to offer laser surgery as an option for safe, comfortable treatment for your pet. There are several benefits of laser surgery. Less Pain – the laser seals nerve endings as it “cuts”, reducing pain after the surgery. Less Bleeding – the laser seals small blood vessels during the surgery, greatly reducing blood loss. Less Swelling – the laser energy does not crush, tear, or bruise the tissue because there is no physical contact with the tissue. This can reduce your pet’s post-operative recovery time, leading to a quicker recovery and return to normal activities.

  • Comfort Package

Our Comfort Package is a wonderful way to help minimize the discomfort your pet will feel due to the procedure. Before surgery your pet will receive a pain management injection. This injection will control pain and inflammation for 24 hours after surgery. There will also be pain medication to go home to effectively control your pets discomfort during the recovery. Also your pet will receive a post-surgery laser therapy treatment. Unlike the surgical laser which cuts, the therapy laser uses a beam of laser light to enhance healing, reduce pain and reduce inflammation.

  • Pain Management Injection

An anti-inflammatory injection during the time of surgery will help control pain and inflammation for approximately 24 hours after the surgical procedure.

  • Nerve Block (Local Anesthetic)

Local anesthetics work by blocking the transmission of nerve signals to the brain from the area that was injected. A nerve block will be performed at the surgical incision site. This blocks pain signals for several hours after surgery and helps produce a calm, peaceful recovery from surgery. Only used when appropriate.

Dentistry:

Routinely brushing your pets' teeth with appropriate toothpaste is recommended. As your pet ages they may require dental cleanings to help ensure that they stay healthy. Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats.
