Emergency Surgeries We Perform
Emergency pet surgery might be necessary for your companion, depending on their condition. Some of our emergency surgical services include:
- Removal of ingested foreign bodies

- Emergency spay surgery (for treatment of pyometra)
- Wound debridement and repair
- Emergency C-section
- Bloat surgery (stomach torsion correction)

Increasing Our Patients’ Safety and Healing
To reduce blood loss during certain surgeries, we employ a technique called electrocautery. This means we cauterize blood vessels to slow bleeding and reduce the risk of infection.
Additionally, members of our expert team are always watching over your pet, during and after surgery, to ensure they are safe and stable. Our hospital uses equipment on par with what you would find in a human ER to monitor vitals, administer fluids and medications, and more.
Attentive Hospitalization, Day and Night
We’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so if your pet has to stay overnight, know that they’ll always be under our staff’s caring and watchful eye. We’re more than capable of managing their needs and keeping them as comfortable as possible while they’re away from home. You can call our hospital at any time to check in on your pet, and if you want to visit, feel free to ask!
