We Get Them Back On Four Feet
At Ambassador Animal Hospital, we understand that veterinary surgery can be stressful, for both you and your pet. Anytime pet owners have to put their cat or dog through surgery and general anesthesia, they tend to get nervous.
We are here to give you peace of mind—and to get your companion back on all four feet as quickly as possible. Dr. Alexander is a skilled veterinary surgeon with years of training and experience, and thousands of procedures under her belt. We also use minimally invasive techniques and the lightest form of anesthesia that we are able to use for every surgery. When your companion needs surgical care, you can rest assured that we provide the very best.
Our Veterinary Surgery Services
We perform general cat and dog surgery by appointment Monday-Friday. To schedule surgery for your pet, call us at (864) 271-1112. Since we have an in-house diagnostic lab, digital radiology and ultrasonography, and a state-of-the art surgical suite, we are able to perform surgeries on-site.
Getting your female dog or cat spayed not only protects you from having to find good homes for puppies or kittens, it also protects your pet’s health and improves your pet’s behavior. Spaying your cat, for example, will keep her from going into heat, causing her to spray urine and yowl loudly at night to attract males. Spaying your dog or cat can also help prevent medical issues, such as uterine infections and breast tumors, which are malignant in 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. In general, dogs and cats who have been spayed live longer, healthier lives. It is best to schedule surgery while your cat or dog is still young (anytime from eight week on) for the greatest protection against disease.
Neutering your male dog or cat is a simple, inexpensive procedure that has health and behavioral benefits. Neutering your male companion can prevent testicular cancer as well as certain prostate problems. Just as importantly, neutering your cat or dog makes him less likely to spray urine, run off, or get into fights with other males of his species.
Soft Tissue Veterinary Surgery
Soft tissue surgery is any surgery that is not performed on bone. At Ambassador Animal Hospital, we are able to perform mass removals, foreign body surgery (when your companion has eaten a non-food item that is blocking digestion), cystomy, bladder stone removal, hernia repair, eye enucleation, and many other surgeries involving your dog or cat’s soft tissues.
Orthopedic Veterinary Surgery
Orthopedic surgery requires a large amount of specialized equipment and supplies. While some orthopedic repairs can be handled in house, such a jaw fracture, for complex or critical orthopedic repairs we offer referral to an orthopedic specialist.
Diagnostic Veterinary Surgery
Occasionally, our diagnostic services will include exploratory surgery for your dog or cat, such as a biopsy to determine whether a mass is cancerous or not. As with all of our surgeries, we make these procedures as minimally invasive as possible.
Emergency Veterinary Surgery
If you believe that your dog or cat is in need of emergency surgery, call us immediately at (864) 271-1112 so we can determine the needs of your pet and refer you to the Animal Emergency Hospital if need.
