Surgical Services for Pets

As a full-service veterinary centre, we are equipped to perform a wide array of surgeries on our patients. From routine and minimally invasive spays/neuters, to more complex joint replacements, our team can perform most surgeries in-house. To learn more about our surgical capabilities, please feel free to call us at 613.543.2812.

What kinds of surgeries can pets get?

Pet surgeries generally fall under a few main categories: soft tissue and neurosurgery. Tooth extractions are also considered as a type of surgery and is performed under general anesthesia.

What types of surgery services do you provide for pets?

Our veterinary team regularly performs spays, neuters as well as general soft tissue surgeries on the hearts, lungs, skin and other areas of their body.

What should I do to prepare my dog/ my cat for surgery?

Well before you bring your pet to the hospital for their operation, your veterinarian will go over everything that you need to know and steps that you should take at home to get your pet ready. Depending on your pet’s unique case, health profile and the type of procedure that they will have, you may also have to bring them in for pre-operative tests and examinations.

How long can pet surgeries take?

There really is no set time as to how long each operation will last, however, surgeries can last anywhere from 2 to 4 hours depending on complexity. Recovery periods can also be anywhere from a few days to a few months. With some operations, you can take your pet home that same day, but for others, they may need to board with us and stay overnight.
