Welcome to Lonsdale Vet Hospital’s Surgery page, where we prioritize your cherished companion’s safety, comfort, and well-being. Our experienced surgical team combines skill, precision, and compassion to provide the highest quality surgical care for pets in North Vancouver.
Neutering is a surgical procedure that involves removing the testicles from male pets. It’s an effective way to control overpopulation and can also reduce certain behavioral and health issues in male animals.
Spaying is the surgical removal of the ovaries and, in some cases, the uterus of female pets. This procedure not only helps prevent unwanted pregnancies but also offers health benefits and reduces the risk of certain diseases.
From mass removals to more common procedures like dental extractions, our skilled surgeons perform a wide range of routine surgeries with the utmost care and attention.
We offer specialized care for musculoskeletal issues, including fracture repair, joint stabilization, and more.

When it comes to caring for your pet, surgery is often necessary for various reasons. It can help with medical issues, and pet surgery services can also provide other benefits you may have yet to consider. From improving the quality of life for your furry friend to helping keep them safe and healthy, here are some key benefits to be aware of when considering pet surgery services.
Pet surgeries are designed to improve our pets’ overall health and well-being by addressing underlying health issues, such as infections or tumors that could otherwise cause pain or discomfort in animals if left untreated. This improved quality of life means fewer trips back and forth from the vet’s office due to illnesses related directly or indirectly to these conditions being addressed through surgical intervention before they become more serious problems.
In addition, certain types of surgeries like spaying/neutering can help reduce aggressive behavior in pets, which makes them safer around people as well as other animals who might otherwise trigger their aggression if not properly managed through these procedures beforehand; this helps create a safer environment both inside and outside your home so everyone involved remains secure at all times!
Though there is an upfront cost associated with most surgical procedures performed on cats & dogs alike (depending on what type), investing in these treatments now will save money over time since many common medical problems require long-term treatment plans which would add up quickly without having taken preventative measures first via proper veterinary care including potential surgeries where applicable – plus preventive measures typically come out cheaper than reactive ones anyways!
We kindly request that appointments be canceled or rescheduled at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a $20 cancellation/rescheduling fee.
Failure to attend an appointment without prior notice or cancellation after the specified time frame will result in a penalty fee of $89.
Following three consecutive no-shows, we reserve the right to suspend your appointment scheduling privileges.
All refill requests must receive authorization from your doctor. Prior to refills, physical exams may be required at the discretion of the doctor, taking into consideration patient history. Please allow 48 hours for medication refills to be processed. Certain medications have short expiration dates, so kindly request refills 15 days before pickup to ensure availability.
Patients with chronic conditions necessitate periodic examinations and blood work, determined at the discretion of the doctor based on individual needs.
There is a nominal fee of $15 for providing or sending a prescription to you for use at other pharmacies.
Payment is due at the time of service. A 50% deposit is mandatory for surgeries and ultrasounds to secure the scheduled date. Examinations typically run for 20-30 minutes; any additional time will incur an extra charge.
We understand that surgery can be a stressful time for both you and your pet, which is why we strive to provide compassionate care at every step of the way. From pre-operative evaluations to post-operative follow up visits, our goal is always safety first while providing excellent service with minimal discomfort or risk involved. With us on your side, you can rest assured that your beloved companion will receive world class medical attention when it comes time for surgery!
