Your Pet’s Surgery


Cryosurgery is not your typical "surgical procedure." It is a non-invasive treatment in which unsightly skin lesions such as warts, skin tags, and papilloma are removed from your cat or dog.

This same day procedure does not require suturing or general anesthesia. The procedure involves minimal discomfort, and the recovery healing time is quick.

How Does It Work?

The Cryosurgery site is prepped, and a topical anesthetic is applied. During Cryosurgery, your pet's skin lesion is frozen with the use of non-toxic gas that rapidly freezes the area. Over the 10-14 days following treatment, the lesion will begin to scab and eventually shed. Once the lesion has resolved, new healthy tissue can grow in its place. Some larger lesions require multiple treatments for full resolution.

This procedure is ideal for older pets or those with medical conditions.

Spaying & Neutering

There are countless benefits to spaying and neutering your wonderful furry friends, ranging from medical to behavioral.


  • A longer, healthier life: This procedure helps prevent uterine infections and breast tumors, which are known to be cancerous to 50% of dogs and 90% of cats. If you spay your pet before they go into heat for the first time, it offers your animal the best protection from these diseases.
  • Your pet won't go into heat: If your female cat goes into heat, this cycle can last for four to five days every three weeks during the breeding season. In order to attract for mates, no matter if they're around or not, your cat will yowl and urinate much more often, which can make potentially make a mess around your home.


  • Your pet could become better behaved: In order for a pet to make its mark and claim its territory, unneutered dogs and cats will frequently urinate on different areas of a space, despite it being a couch or another piece of furniture. Male dogs are also less likely to mount other animals and inanimate objects after he's neutered.
  • Less likely to run away from home: When an animal is in heat or looking for a mate, they'll do just about anything to find one! Their drive to find a mate will outweigh their own safety, so if your pet escapes from home, they're at a risk for injuries, like wandering into traffic or getting in a fight with other animals.
