Pet Surgery Options at Beattie Pet Hospital
At Beattie Pet Hospital, you can choose from routine pet surgeries, such as spay and neuter, as well as tumor removals, and orthopedic surgeries. We anesthetize your pets prior to surgery, for added comfort. We use laser technology for precision, as well as to reduce swelling and bleeding.
It’s best to schedule a pet spay procedure for your female cat or dog if you do not plan to breed her. This procedure removes her uterus and ovaries, to eliminate any chances of pregnancy occurring. Choose a neuter surgery for your male cat or dog, to prevent him from impregnating another animal, and producing an unwanted litter. This procedure not only castrates your pet, but has also shown to facilitate positive behavioral changes, such as making your dog calmer and eliminating the spraying action of cats to mark territory.
If your pet has any kind of suspicious lump or tumor, we can perform surgery to remove it. We also offer C-sections for emergency birthing issues, exploratory surgeries, and more complex surgical procedures if the situation requires it. Our variety of pet orthopedic surgeries includes options to reset broken bones, as well as perform surgery or joint replacements for hips and knees.
Emergency pet surgeries may be necessary following injuries such as those occurring in car accidents, or ingestion of poison or chocolate. If you have an emergency situation, please bring your pet in immediately.
If you have questions or concerns about veterinary care for your pets, or need to make an appointment with a veterinarian on our staff for your pet’s anesthesia and surgery, please call us today at 289-639-5600 at our Stoney Creek.

Spay & Neuter, Orthopedic Surgery, Emergency Surgery and More!
Spaying or neutering a pet is one of the most routine surgical procedures performed at Beattie Pet Hospital. Spay and neuter procedures offer a number of health benefits for pets, including a reduced risk for certain cancers and health problems. Spay and neuter surgery also helps to control the unwanted animal population. We strongly recommend spaying and neutering puppies and kittens.
If your pet is suffering pain due to arthritis or an orthopedic injury (like a cruciate ligament tear), orthopedic surgery can make a significant difference for your pet’s overall health. Orthopedic surgery can be complex with a lengthy recovery period; consequently, we closely consult with pet owners prior to any surgery to ensure these procedures are the right choice for pets. For many pets, however, orthopedic surgery is essential to bringing mobility back to their lives and reducing chronic pain.
Cancer is one of the most common health problems affecting pets. If our vet suspects that your pet has cancer, a biopsy is necessary to confirm this diagnosis. We will take samples of the suspected tumor tissue. Depending on the type of cancer, our surgical team may perform a needle biopsy, punch biopsy, or curate biopsy. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, our surgical team may also remove cancerous tumors and lumps.
In addition to elective procedures like spaying and neutering, our Stoney Creek pet surgery team also provides emergency surgery. Emergency surgery may be necessary following gastric torsion, blunt force trauma, or foreign object ingestion. Using the latest diagnostic technology, our Beattie Pet Hospital team will promptly identify your pet’s health problem and take the necessary steps to immediately address it.
Prior to any surgical procedure, we conduct full diagnostic blood work, ensuring the safe administration of anesthesia. Throughout the procedure, we carefully monitor your pet’s vital signs. After the operation, pets are kept in our post-op recovery suite where their immediate recovery is monitored as the anesthesia wears off. When pets are ready to go home, our Stoney Creek pet surgery team will first discuss the recovery process in detail with pet owners. Pets are sent home with pain medication. Depending on the procedure, we may schedule follow-up visits at Beattie Pet Hospital to ensure a smooth recovery and healing process.
