Cumming Veterinary Clinic offers a full range of common to advanced surgeries for cats, dogs, and exotic pets. By partnering with board-certified surgeons who perform procedures at our hospital, we greatly expand our in-house capabilities and limit our need to refer clients elsewhere.
All animals undergo pre-surgical exams with bloodwork prior to anesthesia. Prior to anesthesia, the surgeon will address any identified problems that could put an animal at risk.
The veterinarians on staff at Cumming Veterinary Clinic perform routine wellness surgeries, including spay, neuter, and dentistry.
Other commonly-performed procedures include:
- foreign object removal
- bladder stone removal
- mass removals
You can feel confident that we will always recommend the care we would give our own pets. We won't perform a surgery that would have a better outcome under the care of one of our partner specialist surgeons.
Dr FitzSimons performs advanced dental procedures, including root planing, extractions, and oronasal fistula repair. He can also perform full mouth extractions for FORL lesions in cats. He is skilled in ACL repair with lateral suture technique for torn ACL.
Dr Martinez provides surgery to most exotic species using specialized equipment. For minor skin problems, he offers cryosurgery, which can sometimes eliminate the need for anesthesia. He and Dr. Dorton are skilled in the LOVE spay technique (in which everything is done endoscopically).
Dr. Julie Duval provides numerous advanced soft tissue surgeries, including perineal urethrostomy (for urinary blockage in male cats), liver mass removal, gallbladder removal, parathyroid tumor removal, soft palate resection, and any cancerous mass that is most appropriately managed by a board-certified surgeon.
We know it can be stressful learning that your pet needs surgery. We welcome your questions about your pet’s condition and procedure. Please contact us to learn more.
