My pet needs surgery.  Where do I start?  

Pioneer Paws is a full service veterinary hospital
offering a wide range of elective, non-elective, urgent
care and referral specialty surgeries.  We can help
you help your pet - read on for more information.  
Elective Surgeries such as spays, neuters
and dental surgeries:
Urgent care and non-elective surgeries:
My pet is sick and/or injured and likely needs surgery.  What should I do?

Give us a call.  We are more than happy to help.  Our talented staff will triage your
pet's condition during your phone call.  If your pet is in critical condition and would
be best seen and managed in a critical care facility (like your care would be in ECMC
or Women's and Children's hospital in Buffalo), our staff will likely immediately refer
you to the
Orchard Park Veterinary Medical Center.  If your pet is stable or is too ill
for transport and Dr. Songster is immediately available, our staff will arrange to have
your pet seen here at Pioneer Paws.  Once your pet is seen and evaluated by Dr.
Songster, we will make arrangements to provide the care your pet needs.  If your pet
requires surgery that can be performed here at Pioneer Paws, Dr. Songster will
prepare a detailed treatment plan of your pet's needs.  Remember that "Not all
Surgeries are Created Equal" and that Dr. Songster will arrange to provide the care
that your pet needs and deserves.
