The Elmhurst Animal Care Center is fully equipped to provide pets and their families with a range of surgical procedures. In addition to spay and neuter procedures, the facility is capable of performing major back surgeries, abdominal surgeries, and mass and tumor removals. Veterinarians are also skilled in performing anterior cruciate ligament repairs, luxating patella repair, and other wound repairs. The center performs surgical procedures to cure intervertebral disc disease (IVDD) and tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) for dogs.
Prior to surgery, animals undergo a thorough examination and blood work. Furthermore, animals receive all the required vaccinations and, if needed, anesthesia. Veterinarians also use CO2 laser surgery technology to mitigate the risk of complications.
