Pet Surgery for Your Dog, Cat, or Pocket Pet

Surgery Room

The Pets Place Animal Hospital combines top quality surgical amenities with genuinely compassionate care that is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. Our staff and clients work as a team to provide pre-surgical examinations, pre-surgical diagnostic lab work, effective pain management strategies, and optimal post-operative homecare. At our hospital, follow-up phone calls from your veterinarian and our staff in the days following your pet’s surgery are not the exception but the rule.

Prior to any anesthetic procedure, our doctors will provide a thorough and complete physical examination to determine the exact condition your pet is in prior to surgery. Following an in’house performed blood analysis test we will be able to identify any conditions that may hinder the surgery and recovery of your pet that might be undetectable by conducting only a physical examination.

While your pet is undergoing surgery, he or she will be closely observed by a team of outstanding veterinary health professionals. In addition to your veterinarian, a skilled surgery technician will provide anesthesia support, monitoring IV fluids, careful temperature control, and will provide proactive pain management.


We offer on-site surgical services for dogs, cats and pocket pets, including:

  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Skin and wound reconstruction
  • Thoracic surgery
  • Urinary surgery
  • And many more

Dr. Hodgeson....and staff are always polite, non judgmental and make you feel like your at home. I never feel like there trying to make EXTRA money off my pet or take advantage of a situation."
