Surgery

Full Range of Small Animal Surgical Services

Our surgical procedures, including anesthesia protocols and necessary equipment, are consistent with the highest standards of care and safety. To speed recovery and minimize discomfort, we practice multimodal pain management, which includes pain prevention before, during and after surgical procedures.

Rivertown’s doctors perform a variety of surgeries. For orthopedic and advanced soft tissue surgeries, visiting board-certified surgeons are readily available. Surgeries that may require a specialist include, but are not limited to:

  • ACL (anterior cruciate ligaments) repair, including: TTA (tibial tuberosity advancement), TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy) and extra-capsular repair
  • Fractures
  • Patella luxations
  • Splenectomies
  • Gallbladder removal
  • Complex hernia repair
  • Exploratory surgery

“Brought our dog in after he tore his ACL. Staff was on it! Digital x-rays, laser treatments, medications. Two weeks later they performed surgery and installed a metal plate in our little guy’s leg. He’s doing great!”
