If your pet requires surgery, it's natural to have questions both about the procedure as well as the safety and comfort of your pet. We want you to know with confidence that you are making the best decision for your pet's health. Our experienced veterinarians perform various surgeries throughout the week, from common spays and neuters to more complex soft-tissue surgery.
Copeland Veterinary Hospital uses the most modern surgical and anesthetic monitoring equipment to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older and more high-risk patients.
During surgical procedures, we us electrosurgery. Electrosurgery is the application of a high-frequency (radio frequency) electrical current to biological tissue to make precise cuts with limited blood loss. Electrosurgical devices are frequently used during surgical operations helping to prevent blood loss in hospital operating rooms or in outpatient procedures.
Types of surgery our clinic performs
Our veterinarians perform a wide variety of soft-tissue surgeries, such as:
- Spays / Neuters
- Splenectomy (spleen removal)
- Pyometra (uterus infection)
- Tumor removal
- Foreign body removal
- ...and more!

Kudos to Copeland Veterinary Hospital
These people are wonderful!! I rushed my boy in as fast as I could because he was having an emergency and even though they had closed the front desk, they let me in to make sure he would be okay! Absolutely my new veterinarians from now on!

I have been using Copeland for my pet services for several years and while I always receive such amazing service and the staff is always so helpful just have to brag on them a little more. My dog began to be violently sick on a Saturday. I called the emergency number and was immediately connected to a doctor. Even it being so late on a Saturday evening, Dr. Josh came to the office and prescribed medication. He was friendly, great bedside manner and put me to ease right away. I could go on and on about the great staff of Copeland Veterinary. Not only do they treat your pet like their own, they take both their safety and the safety of their clients very seriously during this pandemic. In my life, I have seen many vets, many people who work in the animal business but everyone at Copeland is the very best and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

Staff and doctors are amazing. My little puppy broke her leg and they were so fast to get her in and taken care of. Dr Baker is an amazing surgeon and him and the whole staff are so caring. He kept us informed the entire time our baby was with them and he personally called to check on her several times after she came home just to make sure was doing ok. I would highly recommend them!!

We couldn't be more pleased with the wonderful advice and care that we have received from Copeland's staff. If you want to work with people who truly care about your pet's well-being, Copeland's is the way to go.

Have been to this vet twice with the same dog and two different emergency situations and the second time was on Christmas Day and they were great both times with my fur baby! Sent text message updates with pictures and daily phone calls to let us know how she was doing!
