Surgical Procedures

We offer surgical services five days per week in our surgery suite.

surgeryDr. Vaniman and Dr. Braun have extensive surgical experience in soft-tissue surgery as well as select orthopedic procedures. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Tom Van Gundy is also available by appointment at our practice for advanced orthopedic and soft-tissue cases.

During surgery, your pet’s safety and comfort is our first priority. While under anesthesia, your pet’s vital signs will be monitored with a Life Window® anesthesia monitor. Our surgery table is heated to help maintain your pet’s body temperature during the procedure and speed recovery time. Each of our patients wake up comfortably in a heated recovery cage.

We take a pro-active approach to pain management for your pet. Your pet’s comfort is of utmost importance to us. We understand both pets and people heal better with effective pain management. We offer a wide selection of injectable and oral pain medications to prevent pain before, during, and after surgery.

If your pet is in need of surgery, we would be happy to sit down with you and discuss your options. We will give you an honest assessment, a realistic estimate, and answer any questions you may have.
