Cat at vet

As part of our commitment to providing your pet the widest range of services and medical support possible, Mission offers a full range of surgical services seven days per week in our state-of-the-art surgical suites. We work to maintain a high level of quality care, while keeping our costs affordable, with tiered pricing based on your household income. 

Our team of veterinarians are proud to offer an extensive list of routine, elective and urgent surgeries, including but not limited to: 

  • Spays and Neuters

  • Dental cleaning and extractions

  • Intestinal foreign-body removal

  • Mass removal

  • Laceration repair, and other wound care

  • Splenectomies (removal of the spleen)

  • Cystotomy (bladder stone removal)

  • Enucleation (removal of the eye)

  • Limb amputation

  • Eyelid mass removals


Surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Each of our anesthesia packages includes baseline bloodwork which helps to mitigate anesthetic risk and disease complication. Your pet is carefully and consistently monitored from start to finish by our team of caring veterinarians, licensed veterinary technicians and assistants. 

Making a Surgical Appointment

Mission requires a pre-surgical examination prior to scheduling through our General Surgery Service, with the exception of spays and neuters for pets under one year of age, but over 16 weeks of age and weighing at least two pounds.* At this appointment, our veterinarians perform a thorough examination of your pet and discuss with you the surgical options, costs, and post-operative care needed for your pet in the hospital and at home. 


If you decide to move forward with surgery, you’ll work with our team to schedule it. On the day of your pet’s procedure, you will drop off your pet 30 minutes prior to hospital opening and they will be placed into the care of our dedicated and compassionate team. You will be required to complete an anesthesia consent form as well as sign off on the estimate prior to surgery. Once your pet’s procedure is complete, the veterinarian will contact you with any updates and discharge instructions. You will be able to pick up your pet the same day.

  • Who are the pets featured in the event invitation and website?
    The artistic drawings featured in the "Raise the Woof" 2023 logo are detailed hand drawings of pets who were especially meaningful to two of our supporters. Willie, is a terrier who passed in 2022, was part of Lollie and Alan Eidsness's family. He was a feisty fella who lived a long and happy life with Lollie and Alan. Zipper was a rescue cat who became especially meaningful to his adopted family at Pet Haven pet rescue. Nominated by Kerry D'Amato, Zipper was a beautiful cat who left us too soon. Mission Animal Hospital commissioned artist and Mission veterinary assistant McKenzie Eggersgluss to create beautiful detailed drawings of these special pets. You can see more of her work on her Instagram.
