Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
During your dog’s life, they may need to undergo one or more surgeries, ranging from routine procedures such as spays and neuters to life-saving operations like foreign body removals. Surgeries can be performed under general anesthesia or sedation with a local anesthetic, depending on the surgery.
One of the earliest and most important surgeries we offer is spaying and neutering. It prevents unwanted litters as well as various medical problems when they get older, such as mammary and testicular tumours. We also remove different lumps and bumps that your pet may get as they age. We also offer bladder stone removal and foreign body removal.
Do you specialize in any surgeries?
We have a board-certified surgeon who is available to come to our clinic to do more advanced procedures or procedures that need specialty surgery, such as cruciate repairs.
Do we have to take our dog to Saskatoon to have surgery?
There is a board-certified specialty surgeon in Manitoba who is available to come to our hospital to perform complicated surgeries for your convenience. There are still some procedures that require a referral to Saskatoon, such as cataract surgery.
I have concerns about having my dog put under anesthesia. How safe is surgery going to be?
Our hospital uses the safest anesthetics available to ensure a speedy recovery. We also offer intravenous (IV) fluids to help lessen any surgical complications. Our patients are fully monitored during surgery by registered veterinary technologists to ensure your pet’s safety.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 11, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
