Surgery Service for Dogs

Canine Surgery Services

What types of surgical services do you provide for dogs?


When your dog needs a surgical procedure, we offer advanced surgical care, recovery, and pain management for your pet. Our veterinarians can perform soft tissue surgery as well as orthopedic surgery. Surgical procedures provided at our hospital include:

– Spay/neuter
– Growth removal or tumour biopsy
– Laceration repair
– Urinary bladder surgery and stone removal
– Abdominal exploratory
– Oral surgery
– Cesarean surgery
– Orthopedic surgery
– Emergency surgery

Pre-Surgical Care
Your pet will be screened prior to surgery to ensure that they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. We administer anesthesia after having performed blood tests to confirm that the patient is a healthy candidate for surgery. Our veterinarians can also use these test results to develop a pain management technique that is tailored for your pet, and screen for any pre-existing conditions that could impact the surgery.

What happens to my pet during surgery?


All pets undergoing surgery will have their blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate and blood oxygen levels monitored by a certified veterinary technician to keep them safe and comfortable during the entire process. On the day of surgery, our staff will also ensure that we have the most up-to-date contact information when you drop off your pet and will keep you informed about their condition and progress.

Post-Surgical Care
Your pet’s care and comfort is our top priority. We will utilize various pain management techniques to aid in your pet’s recovery. The post-operative pain management plan will include pain medication to reduce discomfort and encourage a speedy recovery. This plan will include at-home pain medication to keep them as comfortable as possible. A veterinary technician will provide you with instructions on how to manage your pet’s post-operative care at home. We are more than happy to provide you with more information and answer all of your questions or concerns.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Friday, April 3, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 416-537-3128. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
