Veterinary General


General surgery encompasses a wide array of body systems, including diseases in the abdomen (belly), thorax (chest), EENT (eyes, ears, nose, & throat), endocrine organs (hormone system), skin and many more. General surgery typically also includes treatment of various tumors and cancers. The following is a brief list of some of the more common procedures performed at VSC.

Many of the cases that we treat at VSC involve treating advanced and extensive cancers. Cancer is often a difficult diagnosis for owners to grapple with. We strive to provide owners with all of the information that they need to make decisions. We also offer owners additional options after surgery when possible (such as Torigen Cancer Vaccine therapy). Not every pet with cancer is a candidate for surgery and hospice or palliative care is necessary. Our role in the case does not stop simply if surgery is not an option; we help owners with the decision process even if our role as a surgeon cannot help the pet.
