Before visiting us, please read our COVID-19 Safety Plan.

“Routine” or not, surgery often sounds scary! Rest assured, safety is our top priority from check-in to check out.

Modern anesthesia is generally very safe, and to further lower any risk, we perform a physical examination and run blood work ahead of time to catch any underlying health issues. In addition, we design a unique anesthetic protocol specific for your pet, to ensure even greater safety.

During your pet’s procedure, our highly trained staff monitor vital signs using state-of-the-art equipment. Our rigorous pain management protocols ensure your pet has a speedy and comfortable recovery.


Dr. Buxton has extensive training in surgery, and is skilled at performing many procedures, including (but not limited to):

  • routine spays/neuters
  • growth removals
  • aural hematomas
  • enucleation
  • bladder stone removal
  • gastropexy
  • perineal urethrostomy (feline)
  • anal gland removal
  • cherry eye repair
  • TECA (total ear canal ablation)
  • soft palate resection and stenotic nares ( for brachycephalic breeds)
  • patella luxation repair
  • extracapsular cruciate ligament repair (for torn ACL)

If you are unsure if we can help with your pet’s surgical needs, just make an appointment today and we can go through all the options with you. 


Of all the Vets I have been to this is the most passionate and caring of them all. In my experience most vets prey on your love for your pet offering up unnecessary tests but the Dr always suggests sound advise to try a more holistic approach first. It’s refreshing to go to a vet who takes the time to talk and answer questions without being rushed. Although maybe not as convenient as a place that you can get in immediately it is worth the wait to have a caring Doctor to look after your animals.
