Your pet deserves the best. When it comes to its medical care, turn to our doctor’s 56 years’ experience as a veterinarian. For the last 5 years we have been your trusted vet in Batavia, NY, relocating from Pavilion, NY. Whether you need preventative care for your pets or you’re looking for surgical options, we can help. Our services include:
Anal sac surgery
We have the most experience in anal sac surgery using the Radio Surgical unit. For the surgery, the pet is anesthetized and the anal area prepared for surgery. A probe is placed in each sac. With the needle attachment an incision is made along the probe to the lowest portion of the sac. We then check the incision and stop bleeders using the small ball electrode attachment.
A forceps is attached to the deepest wall of the sac to invert it to the outside of the incision. The ball is then used to cauterize the mucosal lining of the anal sac and canal. After checking that all mucosa is destroyed, the sac is returned to its original location. Partial closing of the incision with absorbable sutures protects the site from foreign material, such as grass, dirt, carpet fibers, etc., entering the open wound if and when the patient scoots during possible itchy healing.
Total surgery time is five minutes for both sacs with experience. We have had NO complications from fecal incontinence or strictures with this technique, which have been a feared problem with other methods of anal sac removal.
Spay and neuter
We offer spaying and neutering for both cats and dogs. While this is a common surgery, we still take great precaution with each pet to make sure there are no complications and the pet heals fully following the procedure.
Even the healthiest pet can come into contact with serious and dangerous diseases. We do our best to prevent these problems through the use of regular vaccinations and proper nutrition. If your pet is ill, we offer experienced medical care to get your pet healthy again.
