Anyone who has ever owned a pet knows what a significant role our pets play in our lives and how important it is to ensure they receive proper care. At Richland Animal Clinic, it is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care throughout the duration of your pet’s life. This includes routine preventative care, early detection and treatment of disease as they age, and complete medical and surgical care as necessary. At our clinic, we offer a variety of routine veterinary surgical procedures, all of which are performed with the safety of your pet in mind.
Our surgery services include, but are not limited to:
Our experts recommend having your pet spayed or neutered at approximately six months of age. However, spaying or neutering at an early age can improve your pet’s temperament and reduce the risk of certain health problems, including cancer. Research shows that more than a quarter of unsprayed female dogs will develop mammary tumors by the time they are adults, a risk that dramatically decreases to less than 1% when females are spayed before their first heat.
Lumpectomy surgery in dogs and cats is a veterinary procedure that removes an abnormal growth or mass. In some cases, the mass may be benign, or harmless, while in others, it may be malignant or cancerous. Of the various treatment methods for tumors, surgical removal is by far the most widely performed.
Your pet’s safety and comfort is our highest priority, and our skilled veterinary staff at Richland Animal Clinic will provide the highest level of care before, during and after surgery, to ensure a safe and complete recovery.
