Surgery Department at Lakeshore Animal Health Partners in Mississauga

Our team at Lakeshore Animal Health Partners provides advanced surgical care for patients in need. Veterinary surgeons are medical specialists that are trained extensively in providing broad surgical care involving the soft tissues (skin, muscles, internal organs) or bones.

Lakeshore Animal Health Partners is equipped with 4 spacious and state-of-the-art surgical suites. Our team works together, ensuring that every patient undergoing surgery is provided with the most optimized and safest care. Anesthesia is provided by a board-certified anesthesiologist who has created an anesthetic plan specifically for your pet and their procedure. Our surgeons work in direct contact with all other services in our hospital to ensure your cat or dog receives the most optimized care for their condition.

Our team performs a variety of surgeries, including soft tissue procedures for the ear, nose, throat, cardio-thoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital systems, as well as skin reconstructive and oncological surgeries. Additionally, we conduct orthopedic surgeries to correct joint problems, repair torn ligaments, mend broken bones, and address congenital issues.
