Orthopedic surgeries involve the bones or joints. Prior to surgery, we will conduct imaging studies to fully evaluate your pet’s injury and plan the best surgical approach. Complicated bone fractures are repaired with advanced plating or pinning methods, in sometimes saving limbs from amputation. We use the most current surgical techniques to treat cruciate ligament tears in the knee, which are the most common orthopedic injuries in dogs.

These techniques restore greater stability to the knee and minimize arthritis development. Hip and elbow dysplasia, patellar luxation, limb growth deformities, and intervertebral disc disease are just a few of the other orthopedic conditions treated by our surgeons. For most orthopedic injuries, treatment doesn’t stop when surgery is complete. The rehabilitation services at Tier 1 will help get your pet back on their feet safely.




Most other surgical procedures are considered soft tissue surgeries. This includes skin growth removals, complex wound repair, and procedures involving the internal organs. Some surgical conditions such as bloat, splenic disease, gastrointestinal foreign body obstruction, or uterine infection are treated on an emergency basis.

At Tier 1 we are available 24-7 should the need arise for emergency surgery. In other cases, surgery is performed to remove cancerous tumors or to address medical conditions. Our surgeons collaborate with our oncology and internal medicine specialists to ensure the best possible outcome for your pet.


Many people worry about their pet undergoing anesthesia. Our veterinarians will conduct thorough pre-surgical testing to identify potential risk factors and design safe anesthetic protocols tailored to your pet’s individual needs. Our certified technical team is highly trained to monitor anesthesia and address any complications that arise during the procedure. Most pets tolerate anesthesia well and are back to their normal selves in no time.

It can be very difficult to care for a pet at home after surgery. At Tier 1 we offer medical boarding to ensure a smooth post-operative recovery. Adequate pain control is of utmost importance. We will make sure your pet is comfortable, administer the appropriate medications, and address any post-operative complications. From the initial diagnosis through to the recovery period, you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands at Tier 1.
