Spaying and Neutering

  • For dewclaw removal after seven days, we recommend it only for dogs over six months of age and exclusively for rear dewclaws.
  • Our veterinary experts perform these delicate procedures with utmost care and precision, prioritizing your pet’s well-being and minimizing any discomfort.

Orthopedic Surgery

If your pet suffers from a fracture or a cruciate ligament injury, our orthopedic surgeons are here to help restore their mobility and vitality. We utilize advanced techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to provide the highest level of care for your pet’s orthopedic needs. Your pet’s recovery and well-being are at the forefront of everything we do.

From mass removals to abdominal surgeries and laceration repairs, we approach each case with precision and a gentle healing touch. We understand that the prospect of surgery can be worrisome, but rest assured, your pet will receive the best possible care throughout their surgical journey.

  • We prioritize your pet’s comfort during dental procedures and utilize modern techniques to ensure a pain-free experience.

Ophthalmic Surgical Services

Our knowledgeable veterinary doctors are experts in various cutting-edge ophthalmic treatments, such as enucleation, entropion repair, and third eyelid imbrication. We work to restore vision and improve pets’ lives using great attention to detail and advanced procedures, enabling your pets to rediscover the world through improved vision.


Electrocautery surgery manages bleeding by applying heat through a probe, resulting in reduced pain, minimal bleeding, and decreased swelling for your pet. All of these benefits means that your pet will have a greater level of comfort after surgery, fewer potential complications and a quicker recovery period when compared to traditional surgery. 

At State Road Animal Hospital, we go above and beyond to cater to your pet’s needs because we believe they deserve nothing less.
