Here is a 12 year old male bunny's xrays that had bladder stones migrate into his urethra making it so he couldn't urinate. We did emergency surgery on him and took them all out.

This is one of the stones taken out of the bunny's urethra.

This is a 6 month old puppy with a condition known as "Cherry Eye". Cherry Eye is the prolapse of the third eyelid gland. We sutured them back into place while he was sedated!

This large mass came off the front leg of a 10 year old Springer Spaniel.

This is a picture of 2 rocks that a 1 year old Golden Retriever ate. We made an incision into the stomach to get the bigger rock out and an incision into the small intestine to get the smaller rock out. She recovered well from surgery.

This is a picture of a cat with a severe underbite. Notice how the bottom jaw (mandible) in significantly shorter than the top jaw (maxilla).

This is a picture of a 10 year old terrier that has severe periodontal (mouth) disease. There is a lot of hair mixed in with the tartar on these teeth as well!! A dental was definitely needed!

These are cystic ovaries from a 10 year old terrier who got spayed, notice the fluid filled "balloons". The ovaries are suppose to be little and not full of fluid.

The top worm is a white, flat tape worm and the bottom one is a roundworm.  Both came out of the same cat after deworming!!!!

This is a picture of a Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO) Surgery.  As you can see, the femoral head was taken out of this 4 year old poodle to relieve the pain she was having. She had a hip disease that resulted in muscle and bone cell death of the femoral head.

Here is a an overview!

This is the uterus of a 7 year old, intact female cat.  She came in for having a foul discharge coming from her vulva 3 days prior and now she had stopped eating. This is a picture of her uterus filled with pus (Pyometra) which can happen between heat cycles when bacteria counts are high especially. This luckily was an open pyometra, which means that the cervix is open and allows the pus to drain out of the cat. If it had been a closed pyometra, the cervix would have been closed and the uterus would have gotten so pus filled that it would have ruptured!!!

The blue arrow is pointing to some tartar build up on his back teeth. I also wanted to point out his natural pigment spots on his lips which aren't anything bad or worrisome(orange circles).

These are a pair of cystic (fluid filled) ovaries from a little guinea pig. She came in because she wasn't eating well or acting like herself.

This is an xray of a dog with good hip joints (No hip dysplasia).

This is an xray of a dog with bad hip joints (hip dysplasia) as well as arthritis. The hip socket is suppose to be nice and round, hugging the hip joint. As you can see the hip socket is splayed out and the hip joint really isn't encased  like it should be. The joint itself has arthritis on it, that is indicated by the white fuzzy area between joint and socket.

This is a dog that broke its tibia (the major weight bearing bone in the hind limb). We are doing surgery on it, putting the broken pieces back together using the metal plate and screws you see in the picture.

This is a picture of a cat with what started as a severe corneal ulcer caused by either trauma to the eye or the herpes virus. As you can see, it is now about to rupture.

This is an x-ray of an external fixator placed through the back leg to stabilize the broken bones as much as possible.

This is a picture of the small intestine of a yellow lab who came in because he was vomiting for the last 24 hours and a couple rocks were missing from a rock collection! Before surgery we took x-rays and found a large rock was lodged in his intestines. We then proceeded with a Foreign Body Exploratory Surgery to retrieve the rock by opening up his abdomen and feeling down his intestines trying to fine its exact location. Then, we cut an opening in the tissue to slide the rock out! Closing the incision and irrigating the abdomen with an antibiotic water followed and closure of the abdomen was last on the list to do!

This is the rock we found in his intestine!

This is the piece of the small intestine where we cut an opening to slide the rock out!

This is a picture of a dog that is here for a dental cleaning. Notice the amount of tartar on her teeth is noticeable but not overpopulating her mouth. This is the perfect time for a routine cleaning without having to be concerned about extractions!
