Surgery 

Spay and Neuter

Spaying or neutering your pet can help them live a longer and healthier life. In addition to preventing unwanted litters, spay and neuter reduces the incidence of certain type of cancers and other conditions such as pyometra. Furthermore, spay and neuter plays an important role in controlling the stray pet population. 

 

We offer safe and effective spay and neuter surgeries at our Galena office!

Dental Care 

 

Your pet’s oral hygiene is important to their overall health and well-being. Clean teeth promotes fresh breath and reduces plaque and tartar build up that can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Due to the nature of the procedure, your pet will undergo general anesthesia so that we can perform a safe and thorough cleaning.

End of life care 

 

One of the hardest parts about pet ownership is deciding when to say goodbye to your beloved companion. Our veterinary team will work with you to help decide when it is time, and we will help your pet pass with the upmost respect and dignity. We greatly cherish the trust you give us in caring for your pet through their life and as they cross over the rainbow bridge.
