They removed bladder stones from the pet during the endoscopic surgical prodedure in the hospital's $3.5 million hybrid operating suite, the only one of its kind in the United States. The non-profit Animal Medical Center, established in 1910, has 80 veterinarians in 17 specialty services that treat up to 40,000 animal visits annually. Clients bring in their pets from around the country and world to the teaching hospital on Manhattan's Upper East Side for specialized high tech treatment. The American Pet Products Association estimates that Americans would spend more than $50 billion on their pets in 2012, $14 billion of that in veterinary care alone. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
