Surgery

The hospital performs a wide range of surgical procedures at the hospital on a daily basis.

Types of surgery we perform.

Desexing

We perform desexing for all species. Desexing is required by the council and we recommend desexing most dogs at 6-9 months.

Soft Tissue Surgery

Surgery of skin, muscles and organs. We commonly perform mass removals for skin lumps but also offer more advanced procedures such as anal gland removal, eye surgery (including cherry eye surgery), bladder surgery and exploratory laparotomies for treatment of many conditions including foreign body ingestion, diagnostics and cancer treatment.

Orthopaedic

Cruciate ligament disease is a very common cause of limping in dogs. We offer the TPLO procedure for treatment of this disease. As well as surgery for patella luxation, hip procedures and fracture repair.
