Veterinary Surgery

Surgery is an effective way to treat many serious injuries and disorders. Animal Health Services is proud to offer state-of-the-art surgical facilities and equipment. We continue to utilize innovative surgical techniques and technology to remain on the forefront of veterinary medicine.

Our hospital provides all elective surgeries such as spays, neuters and dentals, and we are also highly trained for critical surgeries such as C-Sections, Splenic removal and GDV (Bloat) surgery should the need arise.

For specialty surgeries such as fracture repair, cruciate ligament repair or any major soft tissue surgery, we utilize a mobile surgeon that comes to our office to perform the surgery.  This will allow you and your pet to stay in Cave Creek while still receiving the best care possible.

Our veterinary team educates you throughout the entire process, giving you the tools to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s treatment options. We understand surgery is a stressful time for any owner. We are available every step of the way to answer questions and put your mind at ease.

Surgeries performed at Animal Health Services:

  • Soft-tissue
  • Orthopedic, like repairing fractures, ligament and tendon tears and orthopedic defects like luxating patellas
  • Dental
  • Ophthalmic
  • Foreign body removals
  • Spays and neuters
  • Growth removals
  • Neonate procedures such as tail docking and dewclaw removal

Animal Health Services offers laser surgery for all procedures that require incisions. CO2 lasers reduce pain associated with surgery because the incisions cause less trauma and pain than standard scalpel blade incisions. Plus, the laser stops the bleeding at the same time, greatly reducing chances of complications from excess bleeding. It also results in faster post-surgical healing times.

Patient safety and comfort is our main priority. Our experienced veterinarians provide skilled pain management during and after all surgical procedures, ensuring your pet recovers quickly and free from pain.
