The Animal Medical Clinic performs most surgeries necessary for your dog or cat, including spays and neuters. In addition, we perform many procedures not routinely done at many small animal hospitals. This includes many cancer surgeries and orthopedic procedures, especially knee surgeries such as cruciate ligament repair (TTA procedure) and luxating patella surgery (MPL). The majority of surgeries are done utilizing our surgical laser. The surgical laser minimizes bleeding, pain and infection. We take great pride in our anesthetic safety, monitoring and post-operative pain relief management.
"Hot Spots" are sore, painful patches of skin which are very itchy and drain a moist material. Golden Retrievers and Labrador Retrievers tend to be the most commonly affected breeds. "Hot Spots" are caused by something irritating the skin, most often allergies. Because of this irritation, dogs scratch incessantly making the problem even worse.
At The Animal Medical Clinic, one of our primary concerns every day is that your pet be comfortable and pain free. Pain has many causes. When it happens to your pets, it’s especially sad. It generates almost the same emotions in us as when our children hurt. If your pet has surgery in one of our hospitals, we take every available step to make sure she is as comfortable as possible. This involves using very effective and safe pain relief medications, both before surgery and when you take your pet home. The majority of our surgeries are done using a Surgical Laser. This technology leads to less pain, less bleeding and much quicker recovery from surgery. Recently, we added a Therapy Laser to our pain management arsenal. We use the laser daily to decrease pain and inflammation caused by a variety of problems such as arthritis, neck and back problems, wounds and many other.

Like people, dogs have two cruciate ligaments to help provide support for the knee. Their presence keeps the femur and tibia from sliding around and destabilizing the joint. Repairing torn cruciates is a fairly most common surgery at our animal hospital. Certain breeds (Labradors and Rottweilers) show up with this injury more frequently than other pets.
