Surgery Service for Dogs
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.
What surgery services do you offer for your dogs?
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.
