Surgical Procedures

When it comes to your pet's surgery, we understand you want to be sure every available precaution is taken to ensure a successful outcome. At Tranquility Veterinary Clinic, we strive to make every procedure as safe and effective as possible. Our clinic houses a state-of-the-art surgical suite with specialized air control for soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries. We use high precision carbon dioxide surgical laser instead of scalpel surgery to make incisions, reducing bleeding, risk of infection, pain, and recovery time.

Our veterinarians are highly experienced in a wide range of surgical procedures. If you have a question about whether we offer a particular procedure, please give us a call.

 

Soft Tissue Surgery

Our clinic is equipped to perform a range of soft tissue surgeries, from basic to complex. This encompasses all procedures that do not relate to the bones and joints. Our veterinarians routinely perform spay/neuter, foreign body removal, trauma & laceration repair, tumor removal, and much more.

 

Spay & Neuter

We recommend spay/neuter for all our patients because of the procedure's many benefits. Sterilizing your pet reduces or even eliminates the risk of many diseases of the reproductive system. It also benefits you and your family by preventing challenging mating behaviors, such as the urge to roam, aggressive behavior, and mood changes. Both the spay and neuter procedures are quick, safe, and require minimal recovery time.

  • Spaying your female pet removes the ovaries and uterus to prevent unwanted litters, heat cycles (canine periods), mammary and uterine cancers, and unwanted behaviors, such as roaming and mood changes.
  • Neutering your male pet removes the testicles to prevent unwanted litters, testicular cancer, enlarged prostate, and unwanted behaviors, such as roaming and aggression.

 

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic surgery corrects conditions of the bones and joints. Our medical team commonly performs orthopedic surgeries to treat bone breaks, fractures, and dislocations. If you notice changes in your pet's personality or behavior, these may signal pain stemming from a orthopedic condition. Please contact your veterinarian immediately if you observe weakness, irritability, aggression, lethargy, or unwillingness to jump or climb.

 

Benefits of Carbon Dioxide Laser Surgery

Laser surgery uses a highly focused beam of light to ablate tissue, making clean and precise incisions. The laser also seals while it cuts, closing capillaries, small blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerve endings. We use laser surgery in place of traditional scalpel surgery whenever possible, due to the outstanding benefits for patients:

  • Less bleeding: By sealing blood vessels as it cuts, the laser greatly reduces blood loss. This benefit has enabled doctors to perform a number of new procedures that were not practical to perform with a scalpel.
  • Less pain: By sealing lymphatics and nerve endings, laser surgery decreases edema and pain, resulting in a much more comfortable recovery for the patient.
  • Reduced risk of infection: The laser kills bacteria in its path, sterilizing the wound and thus reducing chances of infection.
  • Reduced recovery time: With less bleeding, pain, and risk of infection, the patient is likely to have a far quicker recovery following surgery.
