General & Advanced Surgery

Many pet owners experience anxiety or stress at the thought of their beloved pet undergoing a surgical procedure. At Three Trails Animal Hospital, we can alleviate the stress thanks to our exceptional surgical team and advanced surgical suite.

Our clinical team takes every precaution to ensure your pet’s health, safety, and comfort. The advanced veterinary medical technology available at Three Trails Animal Hospital equips our highly-skilled veterinarians to perform each procedure with extreme accuracy and precision.

  • Before the surgery, we conduct a nose-to-tail examination to ensure your pet is healthy to undergo the surgery and anesthesia. A pre-anesthetic blood panel may also be required if your pet has not had blood work taken in the last six months.
  • During the surgery, a trained member of our staff will rigorously monitor your patient’s vital signs and pain levels.
  • After the surgery, our staff will continue to closely monitor your pet’s health so that they may wake up comfortably, and recover from the anesthesia as expected.

Below are several of the most common surgeries performed at Three Trails Animal Hospital:

  • Spay/Neuter Surgery is recommended for all dogs and cats that will not be responsibly bred. The ideal time to spay or neuter your pet is before they reach sexual maturity, but the surgery can be performed later in life too. This is a routine procedure and males will return the next day while we will keep the females overnight to monitor.
  • Soft Tissue Surgery is any type of surgery not performed on the bones, joints, or cartilage. Spay/neuter surgery, mass removal, trauma or laceration repair, bladder stone removal, and hernia repair are all common examples of soft tissue surgeries.
  • Surgical Oncology is a term that refers to the removal or treatment of cancerous tissues. Typically aimed to stop the spread of cancer, these specialized surgeries may help to improve the animal’s overall health and quality of life.  
  • Orthopedic Surgery includes treatment of joint conditions including the hips and knees, as well as fracture repairs.
