Using the safest and most effective surgical techniques

Surgical Services For Your Pet

At New Light Animal Hospital we understand that surgery on your pets may be scary. Rest assured, we take every precaution to ensure the safety of your pet. We use the most state-of-the-art equipment to monitor your pet during anesthesia, surgery, and recovery. 

Safety and good results are important for all surgeries. Anesthesia is undertaken with the utmost care using state-of-the-art equipment and medications. Pre-surgical bloodwork and IV fluids are strongly recommended to maximize successful outcomes.

Monitoring of anesthetized patients includes blood pressure and blood oxygen saturation to best insure a comfortable and safe procedure for the pet.

Only surgery within the abilities of our surgeons will be undertaken. Most orthopedics and specialty procedures will be sent to referral specialty practices in the area.

Common types of surgeries include:


Abdominal exploratory

Exploratory surgery may be needed to diagnose the problem. Symptoms could be sign of tumors, cancer, or the ingestion of a foreign object.



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.



A biopsy is the surgical removal of a tissue sample from a suspicious wound, ulcer, abscess, or tumor.

Cryptorchid neuter

When a dog’s testicles do not descend normally health problems can arise. This surgery is a more in-depth neutering procedure to help protect your pet’s health.



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



Trauma to the eye, tumors of the eye, glaucoma, and ulcers on the eye may require surgical removal for the health of your pet.


Laceration / wound repair

Your pet’s wounds should always be checked. Some can heal on their own, others will need medical assistance.



Mammary tumors can be very aggressive and require surgery.  New Light Animal Hospital has the experience to get your pet the help needed.


Mass / tumor removal

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



Pyometra is a uterine infection common in older, unspayed female dogs and cats.


Spay / neuter

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



A splenectomy is the removal of an abnormal spleen often due to a mass on the spleen itself.



A vulvoplasty is a surgical procedure that may be recommended to correct a recessed vulva.
