Saint Francis veterinarians are experienced in all manner of general surgery, successfully performing thousands each year. If surgery is recommended for your pet, our caring and experienced staff will work with you prior to surgery to prepare your pet, and we will oversee post-procedure recovery until your pet is ready to go home.  Once your pet is comfortably home with you, we’ll never be more than a phone call away to help you oversee recovery.  And, our doctors are here 24 hours per day, every day of the year should your pet suffer unforeseen complications.

The more common general procedures we see include:

  • Spay/neuter
  • Mass removal
  • Biopsy
  • Laceration and injury repair
  • Dewclaw removal
  • Pregnancy/delivery procedures
  • Avian, reptile and exotics procedures

We know that surgery for your pet can be a scary thing to face.  Don’t worry, we’ll be with you every step of the way, available 24 hours per day for anything you need.
