Veterinary Surgeon Performing Procedure on PetA

t West Park Animal Hospital, we perform a variety of veterinary surgeries that can help your beloved pet feel better. With decades of experience, our team will provide your furry family member with the most up-to-date, evidence-backed veterinary care available.

Veterinary Surgical Procedures

At West Park Animal Hospital, we specialize in the care of domestic cats and dogs. As a clinic accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), we deliver high-quality, evidence-based care for your pets using advanced technologies that include pulse oximeters, inhaled anesthetic machines, and cutting-edge instruments. Our caring staff will work with you to help determine if veterinary surgery is necessary, explore your options, and ensure the best outcome for your pet. To this end, our team offers the following surgical procedures:

  • Spay and neuter: This procedure helps limit overpopulation and may increase your pet’s lifespan.
  • Declawing: Surgeons will remove a cat’s claws as well as the small bones they grow from to prevent scratching.
  • Lump removal: This procedure can help prevent the spread of potential cancer and more.
  • C-section: When a pet has trouble delivering newborns, this emergency surgery safely removes the unborn animals from their mother’s uterus.
  • Abdominal exploratory surgery: If a pet demonstrates abdominal disease that professionals cannot diagnose with imaging alone, this veterinary surgery can help.
  • Gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) syndrome emergency surgery: Surgery for this condition, also known as twisted stomach or bloat, treats life-threatening stomach rotation in dogs.
  • Foreign body removal: When an item will not pass through your pet’s digestive tract, this surgery can remove it.
  • Amputation: Vets can remove a damaged or diseased limb to keep your pet healthy.
  • Spleen removal: Also called a splenectomy, this procedure helps treat a ruptured spleen, growths, and other concerns.
  • Cranial cruciate ligament correction: This orthopedic pet surgery treats torn ACLs in pets to relieve pain and improve mobility.
  • Fracture repair: Plates and screws are used to set and stabilize your pet’s broken bone.
  • Eye removal: If your pet’s eye has been traumatized or infected, it may need to be removed to eliminate pain.
  • Dental extraction: This common procedure can be employed to combat dental disease and more in your pet.

After performing surgery, our expert team will transfer your pet to our ICU for monitoring, ongoing pain management, and comfortable recovery.

Benefits of Laser Surgery

Kitten With Puppy Holding StethoscopeInstead of using traditional surgical scalpels, our team performs many veterinary surgeries with lasers. This innovative technique allows surgeons to safely cauterize nerve endings and blood vessels while simultaneously making incisions. Our laser surgery offerings include:

  • Spay and neuter
  • Vascular surgery
  • Open abdomen exploratory surgery
  • Tumor/lump removal

Laser veterinary surgery offers several benefits for your pet. For example, your pet will experience less bleeding thanks to laser surgery’s instant cauterization. They will also experience reduced swelling, shorter surgery times (meaning less time under anesthesia), less post-operative pain, and faster recovery times. Plus, laser surgery also boasts an increased level of accuracy, with its adjustable beam size giving surgeons increased visibility and control as they work.
