Comprehensive Surgical Care
SPCA Florida offers comprehensive surgical care. Our staff and lead surgeon Dr. Dorian are committed to the health and well-being of your pet.
Includes surgeries on bones and joints. Fractures (broken bones) are very common injuries to our furry companions, and we have the capability to repair fractures with pins, wires, plates, and screws. Some fractures can also be splinted. The best option for your pet will be discussed at the appointment.
We also offer surgeries in regards to knee ligament injury (cranial cruciate ligament rupture) or to correct dislocated knee caps (luxating patella).
Soft Tissue Surgery
Many types of soft tissue surgeries are performed at SPCA Florida, including but not limited to:
Gastrointestinal - to remove foreign objects from the intestines or stomach
Genitourinary - surgery of the bladder, kidneys, or genitals
Splenic, liver, and gall bladder
Mass removal - cancerous masses or tumors can occur anywhere on the body. Please schedule a consultation to discuss removal.
We are able to perform some Thoracic Surgeries as well. Examples include lung lobe removals and vascular ring anomalies (PDA, PRAA).
Involves surgery on the brain and spinal cord. We don't do brain surgery at SPCA Florida, but a limited number of spinal surgeries can be performed. Please contact us to discuss the best options for your pet's care if your pet has any difficulty walking, or is diagnosed with a spinal cord injury.
Regardless of the type of surgery your pet requires, pain management is standard to assist with a smooth and quick recovery.
