PROVIDING A FULL RANGE OF DOG AND CAT SURGERIES
The veterinarians at Crosspointe Animal Hospital provide a wide range of beneficial surgeries. When your dog or cat is ailing, our professional staff strives to deliver helpful, fear-free medical care.
Our practice is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and we've been in business since 1996. We have staff members who are certified by Fear Free, a veterinary organization that trains pet professionals to care for the pet's emotional health and comfort.
We offer Happy Visits for fearful dogs and cats, and we ensure that everyone is relaxed and that you fully understand the procedure. We'll equip you with the knowledge you need to provide after-surgery care to your pet.
We perform a variety of surgeries.
- Dental Cleaning
- Growth removals
- Orthopedic surgery
SEE US FOR CAREFUL ORTHOPEDIC VETERINARY SURGERY
Orthopedic surgery involves the musculoskeletal system and is typically used to repair trauma or address bone or joint problems. Orthopedic surgery involves anesthesia. We carefully monitor your pet's health at every stage of the procedure, including preparation, during the surgery, and afterward.
We use comprehensive monitoring equipment that measures all the important data.
- EKG results
- Heart rate
- Respiration rate
- Blood pressure
We'll give you the information you need to properly care for your pet afterward. Pain management will be based on your pet's needs, and we'll adjust post-operative care as necessary to ensure a complete recovery to full health.
PROTECT YOUR CAT OR DOG WITH BENEFICIAL SPAYING
Unless you intend on using your female dog or cat for breeding, we highly recommend spaying. Spaying your pet is the responsible thing to do, as it prevents your pet from contributing to the millions of unwanted animals that are destroyed in shelters every year.
Spaying also provides several important health benefits that can help your pet live longer and stay healthier.
- The risk of breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer is eliminated
- Your pet's desire to roam is reduced, which leads to fewer fights and automobile accidents
- Spaying ends heat cycles and reduces aggression, which improves your pet's behavior
We advise spaying puppies and kittens around 6 months of age. Pets recover from surgery quickly at a younger age, so we'll start discussing spaying during one of your pet's first wellness exams between 8 and -16 weeks. To learn more about the benefits of spaying your dog or cat, please call Crosspointe Animal Hospital at 703-690-6600.
GET STATE-OF-THE-ART NEUTERING FOR MALE PETS
Neutering your male pet provides many of the same benefits that spaying your female pet offers. The chief benefit is that your pet will not contribute to the unwanted pet population. At Crosspointe Animal Hospital, we feel very strongly about decreasing the number of unwanted pets. Over 3 million unwanted pets are euthanized every year. Many have endured horrible living conditions. Neutering your male pet is the responsible choice.
Neutering also helps your pet live longer and behave better.
- Your pet's aggression is reduced, which can lead directly to better behavior
- Neutered dogs and cats are less likely to roam, and that means fewer injuries from fights or car accidents
- The risk of testicular cancer is eliminated
Pets can be neutered as soon as their testicles drop. For most dogs and cats, the prime time for the surgery is between 6 and 9 months of age. We'll meet with you and examine your pet to make a decision based on that pet's individual condition.
Neutering is typically a very safe procedure. Most cats and dogs can go home with you the same day. Call us at 703-690-6600 to learn more.
USE HIGH-TECH MICROCHIPPING TO REUNITE WITH A LOST PET
Microchipping is a revolution in recovering lost pets. The process is painless, harmless, and effective for your pet's entire life. We'll insert a microchip that's the size of a grain of rice. The process is quick and easy, and it can be completed in a single visit.
If your pet is found, the chip can be scanned by anyone with the right device. Once scanned, the chip will provide the person with a unique code. That code can be compared to databases that includes your name, address, and telephone number, so that you can be contacted right away.
Unlike a collar with a tag, a microchip cannot be accidentally lost or removed. Your pet will not notice the chip and will not be irritated by it. Having your pet microchipped during their spay or neuter is convenient and easy on your pet, as they will be asleep when the microchip is implanted. Contact Crosspointe Animal Hospital to schedule microchipping for your dog or cat.
