We offer a wide range of surgical procedures for companion pets at our Beacon clinic, utilizing stringent surgical protocols.
For every surgery we implement, an experienced nurse will provide your pet with anesthesia and pain management and continuously monitor them with electronic patient monitoring equipment.
Following the veterinary surgery, we will prioritize post-operative monitoring and pain management. Your vet will also give you detailed instructions for at-home care.
What You Can Expect From The Veterinary Surgery
Our vets will always keep you fully informed on the reasons why they are recommending surgery and on all the requirements your pet will have for post-surgery care. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
At The Beacon Veterinary Associates, we conduct a range of medical and emergency surgeries to help treat your cat or dog's condition and disease or to repair injuries they have obtained from trauma.
Our Beacon vets regularly conduct the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgeries for pets that have an ear, nose, and throat disorder.
These operations can also be performed for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When our vets spay or neuter your dog or cat they are surgically sterilizing them in order to prevent disease and give them a longer life expectancy.
In Caesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
We generally perform C-sections when the mother can't give birth naturally.
- Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA)
Our veterinary surgeons conduct TTA operations to help treat CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) ruptures in a dog's knee. The procedure includes cutting the top of the dog's shinbone and moving it forward, your vet will then stabilize it in its corrected position.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgeries help correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your cat or dog. If your pet is suffering from an orthopedic condition that requires advanced specialized care we'll call in a cat and dog vet surgeon from the Beacon area.

Our vets can perform dental surgeries for cats and dogs. These surgeries could include tooth extractions, gum disease treatment, and jaw fracture repairs.

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Dedicated surgical suites. Our surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept fully sterile in order to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks the whole time they are in the surgical suite. Anyone involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
