When your pet is scheduled for surgery at Bassler Veterinary Hospital, his or her health and well-being are our top priority. 

Our hospital is equipped with a state-of-the-art surgical suite, including separate patient prep room and positive pressure operating room.  This helps keep the O.R. clean and your pet’s surgery sterile.

We perform routine surgeries such as spay and neuter, as well as non-routine procedures such as mass excision and biopsy, bladder stone removal, and intestinal surgery to retrieve ingested objects. 


 Here's an example of an intestinal surgery performed at Bassler Veterinary Hospital:


Look at the radiographs above.  Can you see the object in this dog's abdomen? (Hint - it looks like a straight stick.)

See below - this is what we retrieved during surgery:



It was a knitting needle!  On the top is the chewed off piece of knitting needle.

Also in the picture is the matching needle that the dog's owner found at home.

My family and I strongly recommend Dr. Heidi Bassler and her team at Bassler Veterinary Hospital. Above and beyond offering top-notch veterinary and medical skills, I truly felt we had an advocate for the health and well-being of our pet, and our family. Dr. Bassler personally goes the extra mile to care for animals, and comfort and educate their families. Whether for routine check-ups or emergency veterinary care, Bassler Veterinary Hospital is a regional treasure!

We visited Bassler Vet Hospital after our Pomeranian dislocated his hip on the ice. Dr. Bassler and her team had such a caring nature, attention to detail and overall was incredible. They are SO nice and they genuinely care about their patient's well-being. We had used a local Vet for our dog and two cats for a few years, but immediately switched over to Dr. Bassler after just one visit.

Bassler Veterinary Hospital is the best of the best. Word on the street is that if nobody can figure out what is wrong with your dog or cat, then you need to see Dr. Bassler. With this in mind, I brought my dog King to see Dr. Bassler when King was gravely ill and other vets were scratching their heads. Dr. Bassler took a detailed history, performed a thorough exam, and ran some special tests. And just as people said she would, Dr. Bassler diagnosed the problem and put King on the road to recovery. I am so grateful! Dr. Bassler is really friendly and also has a very nice staff. She also responds to my emails, which makes me feel valued and keeps me informed.
