Cat & Dogs Surgery With Care

NorthWest Animal Hospital is equipped to provide a wide range of surgical services and procedures for your cats and dogs.



It is important that all female pets be spayed. Performed on female cat or dog, a spay involves removing both ovaries and the uterus.

Lump Removal

At NorthWest Animal Hospital, the removal of uncomfortable, unsightly or  cancerous lumps is a common surgery. In our experience, most lumps are small and are often removed for comfort or cosmetic purposes. However, even more important are the many cases where the lumps are large or cancerous, and pose a serious threat to a pet’s health, comfort and wellbeing.


It is important that all male pets be neutered early in life. A neuter, performed on male cats or dogs, involves the removal of the testicles. This prevents them from impregnating a female, and decreases the risk of prostate infection and prostate cancer later in life.

Soft Tissue Surgery

There are different types of soft tissue surgical procedures, with many involving the abdominal organs. Some of the most common abdominal procedures that our vets perform are cystotomy (removal of bladder stones), splenectomy (removal of the spleen).
