Started by Vets. Loved by Pets.
There are a variety of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries available to pets and most can improve a pet’s quality of life. In offering reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries, our goals are to improve pet health and strengthen the bond between pet and owner. Our skilled surgeons offer the following procedures to enable your pets to live life comfortably.
Reconstructive surgeries are often medically necessary when they are determined by the veterinarian to be the best option in restoring a pet’s health and well-being. Comparatively, a cosmetic surgery is elective and entirely up to a pet owner. We do perform a complete physical before allowing your pet to undergo any surgical procedure. If you desire a cosmetic surgery for your pet, please take into account the risks of anesthesia before deciding that the surgery is right for you both.
Common restorative procedures are:
Cleft Lip – This surgery is an elective surgery that can help pets who suffer from cleft lip. As a reconstructive surgery, this can help restore a pet’s ability to eat and drink.
Nose surgery – There are several nose surgeries that can be performed on dogs whose noses aren’t fully functional. Breathing issues are common in flat-nosed breeds including Pugs, Boston Terriers, and Bulldogs. Nose surgery is intended to open the restricted airways and help the dog breathe better.
Oral Surgery – Occasionally a pet’s breathing difficulties are a combination of airway restriction in the nostrils, mouth, and throat. In these instances, surgery can be performed on the soft palate and larynx, restoring the pet’s ability to breathe well. Other oral surgeries are performed on pets suffering from severe dental problems that may affect the pet’s health and cause pain, including tooth decay, exposed dentin, severe periodontal disease, and cracked or chipped teeth.
