Every pet parent is concerned about placing their loved one under anesthesia, and rightfully so! To help ease minds and explain the process a bit more, we have created a small slide show to help go “behind the scenes” to help explain what happens for each procedure.

And while we realize that anesthesia is something many pet owners fear for their beloved companions, we also hope that many are able to realize that without surgery and anesthesia, we would not be able to provide life saving tools.

 

If you would like to witness amazing before, during and after pictures of a large cancerous mass removal, please continue to click here. Please note that viewer discretion is advised.


These 3 images are the before surgical prep, during surgical removal, and post removal of a large cancerous mass on a 20 year old kitty cat. What started out very small, progressed to a mass covering nearly the entire surface of the top of her head. This change occurred in less than a years time. Her owner was very, very nervous about surgery in such an elderly pet. We were able to successfully remove all of the cancer through the use of an advancement flap procedure (using skin from her neck to cover the large defect from the tumor removal). We are pleased to say she is doing great!
