Spay & Neuter
Spaying (i.e. overiohysterectomy) refers to the surgical procedure performed on female dogs and cats to render them infertile. There are many benefits to spaying your female pet. First, you will contribute to the prevention of pet overpopulation. Second, spaying will eliminate the sometimes messy heat cycles that attract male dogs to your house from miles away. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet, such as pyometra (i.e., a life-threatening infection in the uterus) and mammary (i.e., breast) cancer.
Neutering (i.e., orchiectomy) refers to the surgical procedure performed on male dogs and cats to render them infertile. There are many benefits to neutering your male pet. First, you will contribute to the prevention of pet overpopulation. Second, neutering will help eliminate undesirable and sometimes destructive behavior. Third, you will help prevent diseases in your pet, such as prostate disease and testicular cancer.
Soft Tissue Surgery

Foreign Object Removal
Sometimes in medicine it is important to “take a peek” at something. With small diameter Endoscopy we can look in many places. It is a wonderful diagnostic tool to have in our arsenal. We can look inside a nose to see the cause of a chronic nasal discharge, as well as, remove some foreign objects from your pet's stomach. We can also look at a liver and take a biopsy through a tiny incision. Dr. Chuck Lay's goal is to use technology to obtain the safest and most rapid diagnosis available for your pet.
