General Surgery

Dogs and cats often are often presented for abdominal conditions that require an abdominal exploratory for diagnostic and therapeutic reasons. Commonly treated conditions include gastrointestinal foreign bodies, gastric dilatation volvulous (GDV), splenic and liver masses, gall bladder disease and urinary bladder stones. Surgery of the thoracic or chest cavity is commonly performed.

Foreign Body (2 Golf Balls)

Lung lobe tumors or lung lacerations secondary to trauma may benefit from removal of the lobe (lung lobectomy). There are several congenital cardiac problems, vascular ring anomalies and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), which can be successfully treated. Surgery of the head and neck including salivary adenectomy for "salivary cyst" and total ear canal ablations with bulla osteotomies (TECA) are commonly performed.
