Pet Surgery & Dental

At LaPaw Animal Hospital, our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care.

LaPaw Animal Hospital Surgery & Dental

We are pleased to provide a wide range of dental and surgical services for our patients. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care for your pet’s surgical needs.

Dental Care

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed, or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.

Laser Therapy & Laser Surgery

If your pet experiences a soft tissue injury, chronic pain, or a wound that needs some more help healing, our doctors may add Laser Therapy to your pet’s treatment plan. Therapeutic laser is the application of light energy to areas of the body to stimulate and accelerate healing. Therapeutic laser reduces pain by decreasing inflammation and decreasing tissue chemicals that stimulate pain and by affecting nerve conduction. The therapeutic laser also enhances healing by increasing microcirculation (blood flow through the body’s smaller blood vessels), stimulating cellular activity, and increasing growth factors.

Soft Tissue Surgery

We provide surgical options in a clean and safe environment. Most importantly, our veterinary team can closely track each animal’s vital condition during surgery.

Soft tissue surgery is a large subject, as it comprises any surgery that is not orthopedic. Procedures can range from simple cyst removals to complex and involved operations. Areas covered include ear, nose, throat, cardiothoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin reconstructive, and oncological surgeries.

Orthopedic Surgery

We are proud to offer orthopedic surgical procedures for injuries and conditions to your pet’s body soft tissue areas. We utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging to enhance our capabilities for soft tissue surgery, ensuring that your pet has access to the highest standard of veterinary medicine.

Our surgical team is highly trained and experienced in soft tissue orthopedic procedures, so you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands. We promise to communicate with you throughout the process and make your pet’s surgery as stress-free as possible.
