Surgical Services

The Veterinarians at the Women’s Humane Society have access to an Aesculight laser surgical instrument when performing surgery. Laser surgery greatly decreases blood loss during surgery because the laser seals small blood vessels as it cuts. Animals are generally in less pain after laser surgery, experience less swelling and fewer post-operative infections. You may request laser surgery at an increased cost of $75.

A consultation examination visit ($45) and up-to-date rabies vaccine ($23) is required before surgery can be scheduled.

Spay and Neuter
The Veterinary Hospital at the Women’s Humane Society offers affordable spaying and neutering surgeries as part of its commitment to addressing the pet overpopulation problem. Laser surgery with our Aesculight laser machine is an option for most spays and neuters. Our experienced surgeons also perform:
  • Emergency pyometra spays
  • Hernia repairs, and dew claw removals
  • Rabbit neuters
  • Dystocia
Mass Removal
Mass removal procedures at our hospital are performed with our Aesculight laser machine which promotes comfort for the patient and expedites the healing process. Masses can be sent out for biopsy for a confirmed diagnosis which helps veterinarians make informed decisions with clients regarding future management of the patient’s health.  If you are concerned about a mass you have found on your pet please call our hospital’s main line to make a surgical consultation appointment to discuss the best option for your pet.
Dental Cleaning and Oral Surgery
Most pets exhibit signs of dental disease by the time they are two years old.  Our surgeons recommend annual dental cleanings for all patients over the age of two, unless required at a younger age based on a doctor’s diagnosis.  Our veterinary hospital has a brand new, state of the art dental machine allowing us to perform dental prophylaxis procedures which removes sheets of plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth that cannot be removed by brushing alone.  Our oral surgeons can also perform complicated extraction procedures when medically necessary for pets suffering from periodontal disease.
Ophthalmic and Otic Surgery
Our surgeons perform complicated ophthalmic surgeries such as:
  • Cherry eye repair
  • Eyelid mass removals
  • Enucleations
  • Aural hematoma repair
Cystotomy surgery is most indicated for treatment of bladder problems including removal of bladder stones, bladder tumors, and blood clots.  Typically, an extensive workup including bloodwork, abdominal radiographs, and a urinalysis is required to confirm that your pet is in need of a cystotomy. 
Gastrointestinal Surgery
Gastrointestinal or (GI) surgery is performed at our hospital on a case by case basis, including foreign body removal, GDV (bloat), and gastropexy.  Often these cases are life threatening emergencies and may be referred to an emergency/specialty hospital based on our surgical availability and/or time constraints.
