Surgery Services For Your Pet

At Cornwallis Road Animal Hospital, we are pleased to provide a wide range of current  surgical services for our patients. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to care for your pet’s surgical needs.

Our staff is highly skilled at performing veterinary surgery and will make sure your pet receives the very best care before, during, and after surgery.

When your pet is ready to go home, we will review your postoperative care and medication instructions. If any questions arise after your pet returns home or at any other time during the postoperative period, call us. We are here to help in any way we can.

Common types of surgeries include:



Treatment of bladder problems may require surgery including removal of bladder stones, bladder tumors, and blood clots.


Dental Surgery

We have a designated dental suite that is maintained by our dental team to provide the best quality care for your pet. We provide dental extractions and minor oral surgeries.



This surgical procedure is preformed to prevent bloating, gastric dilatation, and volvulus (GDV) in large breeds.


Mass/tumor removal

A lumpectomy may be required to remove abnormal growths, tumors, or masses on a pet’s skin.


Minor Amputations

If your pet needs to have a limb or toe amputated, it can be a stressful time but it can be vital to successful treatment.



Spaying and neutering your pet helps prevent potential health problems and helps control pet over-population.
