Surgical Services


Upper Ottawa Animal Hospital does provide full surgical services for all surgeries both elective and non-elective.  Essentially, elective surgery refers to those requested by pet owners for the benefit of their companion. These are usually most commonly related to spaying or neutering.  Non-elective surgery is usually a procedure recommended by your veterinarian due to physical exam findings or as a result of other diagnostic tests such as x-rays or blood work.

The most common types of non-elective surgeries performed at UOAH are:

  • surgical removal of growths of the skin and subcutaneous tissue
  • treatment of abscesses and other wounds or lacerations
  • cystotomy-removal of mineral stones from your pet’s urinary system
  • abdominal surgery to remove intestinal obstructions or masses; foreign body surgery
  • dental surgery, which can mean from a 1 tooth extraction to a full mouth tooth extraction

Using state of the art surgical instrumentation and anaesthesia, the team at UOAH can provide a safe surgical outcome for your pet.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our surgical services; 905-388-0770.
