Tibial Plateau Osteotomy (TPLO)

A tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) is a method of repairing a cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture in a dog. A CCL tear in the dog is similar to an ACL tear in humans. It can be an abrupt tear during trauma or strenuous activity, as often occurs in people. However, it can also be a slow deterioration of the ligament over weeks or months, potentially affecting both stifles (knees). Following a CCL tear, the limp is usually quite severe. While some improvement may occur with time, surgery is the best method of treatment for a dog with a CCL tear. Prices starting from $4,500.

Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA)

Tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA) is a surgical procedure used to treat cranial (or anterior) cruciate ligament rupture in the knee joints of dogs. It involves cutting the top of the shin bone (the tibia), moving it forward and stabilising it in its new position in one of a number of ways.

Cranial cruciate ligament rupture is the most common cause of hind limb lameness in dogs. As a result, TTA and other operations that involve altering the shape of the tibia are common orthopaedic surgical procedures performed in dogs in specialist orthopaedic practices. Prices starting from $4,500.

Extra-capsular Repair (De Anglis)

De Angelis Surgery is a procedure used to surgically treat torn cranial cruciate ligaments (CCL) in both cats and dogs. This type of surgery is often recommended for pets who are experiencing pain, limping, or even lameness due to a CCL tear. De Angelis Prices starting from $2,500.

Fracture Repair

Bone fracture repair is a surgery to fix a broken bone using metal screws, pins, rods, or plates to hold the bone in place. Prices starting from $2,000

Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO)

An FHO, or femoral head ostectomy, is a surgical procedure that aims to restore pain-free mobility to a diseased or damaged hip by removing the head and neck of the femur (the long leg bone or thighbone). Prices starting from $2,000 (for small breeds).

Medial Patella Luxation Corrective Surgery (MPL)

The surgery is performed to correct the luxation, or “popping out” of the kneecap (called the patella). A luxating patella is caused by a congenital malformation that creates abnormal forces on the kneecap, causing it to slide out of the groove (called the patellar groove) in which it normally sits. Prices starting from $2,800.

Brachycephalic Obstructive Airway Syndrome (BOAS)

Brachycephalic dogs typically have narrowed nostrils, overly-long soft palates and excessive tissue around the larynx (in the throat) and within the nasal cavity. The trachea (windpipe) can also be very narrow.

The aim of surgery is to remove excessive tissue to improve/correct the anatomical issues that restrict airflow. Typically, this involves widening the nostrils, shortening the soft palate and removing excessive tissue around the larynx. In some cases, laser surgery is used to remove excessive tissue from within the nasal cavity. In severe cases, a permanent tracheotomy may be required to create a new entrance for airflow at the level of the trachea (windpipe). Prices starting from $2,500.

Perineal Urethrostomy (PU)

Perineal urethrostomy is a surgical procedure that is performed on males to create a permanent opening into the urethra through an incision in the skin of the perineum. The perineum is the area of skin between the scrotum and the anus. Prices starting from $1,800 (excluding further hospital care).

Gastric Dilatation and Volvulus (GDV)

Gastric dilatation and volvulus (GDV) is a life-threatening disorder most commonly seen in large, deep-chested dogs, although any dog may be affected. A GDV, however, is a progression of the bloat into a volvulus, in which the huge, gas-filled stomach twists upon itself so that both the entrance and exit of the stomach become blocked. This is a life-threatening emergency that requires urgent surgery to correct. Prices starting from $2,800.


Pyometra is a serious and potentially life-threatening infection of the uterus that causes it to fill with bacteria and pus. Many animals with a pyometra have vaginal discharge and may feel very sick with a poor appetite, lethargy, vomiting and sometimes increased thirst or urination.

Eye Surgeries: Eyelid Surgery, Cherry Eye Repair, Enucleation

Eye Surgeries:

Eyelid Surgery: In many pets, the eyelids can be too long (ectropion), too short, or roll inward (entropion), causing irritation to the eye.

Cherry Eye Repair: Cherry eye occurs when the gland of the third eyelid prolapses which means it pops up and flips over the third eyelid. Cherry eye repair surgery preserves and replaces the prolapsed third eyelid gland so that the third eyelid is once again functional.

Enucleation is the removal of the eye that leaves the eye muscles and remaining orbital contents intact. This type of ocular surgery is indicated for a number of ocular tumors, in eyes that have sustained severe trauma, and in eyes that are otherwise blind and painful.

Prices starting from $1,000.

Ear Surgeries: Total Ear Canal Ablation and Bulla Osteotomy (TECA-BO), Lateral Ear Resection, Aural Hematoma

Ear Surgeries:

Total Ear Canal Ablation and Bulla Osteotomy (TECA-BO) This surgery involves the complete removal of the ear canal and tympanic bulla (middle ear), leaving only the pinna (ear flap) remaining.

Lateral Ear Resection: The surgery opens the horizontal canal to the outside so that drainage and air circulation can occur. This reduces moisture in the ears and changes the environment so that wax and debris cannot accumulate in the ear canal.

Aural Hematoma surgery is to remove the hematoma, prevent recurrence and retain the natural appearance of the ears. Surgery typically includes making an incision on the underside of the ear flap to drain the fluid and followed by placing several sutures to prevent fluid from building back up.

Prices starting from $1,000.

Simple and Complicated Lump Removal

A lumpectomy is the removal of a lump from the body. Some masses are benign, which means that they do not spread or invade other tissues. Others can be malignant, which means that they can spread to other areas of the body, invade surrounding tissues, and are more likely to recur after removal. Both simple and complicated lump removals can be conducted at our clinics and can be sent off for further testing. Prices starting from $1,000.

Enterotomy, Gastrotomy for Abdominal Foreign Bodies

A Exploratory laparotomy is a form of exploratory surgery performed on the abdominal region. Most gastrointestinal foreign bodies become lodged within the stomach or intestines and require a gastrotomy (opening the stomach) or enterotomy (opening the intestine). Prices starting from $3,000.

Cystotomy for Bladder Cancer, Bladder Stones

A cystotomy is typically performed to remove bladder stones but is sometimes necessary to remove a tumor. Your veterinary surgeon will make an incision through your cat or dog’s abdominal wall, and then into the bladder wall to remove the stones or the tumor. Prices starting from $2,500.

Caesarian (C-Section)

A c-section (caesarean section) is major surgery during which puppies or kittens are removed from the uterus of a dog or cat. We perform c-sections in emergency cases where the animal has difficulty giving birth naturally. Prices starting from $1,500 (cost varies by size and breed)
