If your dog or cat endures an injury that is serious enough to require pet surgery, you can count on the veterinary experts at Erickson Veterinary Hospital in Chico to take care of the problem. In order to ensure that your animal has the easiest surgery possible, every surgeon and member of our nursing and technical staff is skilled in monitoring, pain management techniques and the use of advanced anesthesia. There are numerous soft-tissue procedures that our people are quite familiar with performing on every animal, from canine to kitten. Among the options available for your friendly feline or dog are a neuter or spay; foreign object removal; eye, ear and skin surgeries; a biopsy; a gastropexy; and the removal of bladder stones and anal sacs.

In addition, we are also capable of performing dog orthopedic and cat orthopedic procedures to deal with problems in the musculoskeletal system of your pet. On the other hand, we can take care of any issues that require the use of internal medicine.



In terms of the actual surgical process, it is actually quite similar to that used on humans. Procedure preparations are discussed at the initial appointment, where you can inform us of any odd symptoms you have observed and any medicine the animal is currently taking. Once we have performed the surgery, we will give you any necessary pain medication to make sure that your pet has a comfortable and stable recovery. At Erickson Veterinary Hospital, we place tremendous value on our ability to make the whole process as smooth as possible.
