Surgical Services for Pets

Surgery for your loyal companion sounds scary but it can greatly improve their life, depending on their unique situation and condition. We use advanced equipment to support your cherished pets during surgery. In addition to this, we provide medical support for our clients on how to help their pets recover. Many pet parents experience some anxiety when their pet has an upcoming procedure but when you choose our team, you have the best veterinarians working on their case.

What happens before veterinary surgery?

We perform blood tests before each procedure to make sure your pet will recover from surgery. Pre-anesthetic blood screens help our veterinarians determine how much anesthesia is safe for your pet. Blood tests will also reveal any unknown conditions that may cause complications. Our team may also check your pet’s kidney and liver function.

Before surgery we also ask that your pet does not eat or drink for about 8 hours or so.

What surgeries are performed at your hospital?

Our hospitals have surgical suites where we are able to perform various types of surgeries. Our veterinarians have expertise to successfully perform:

  1. Orthopedic surgery
  2. Spay and neuter
  3. Soft tissue surgery
  4. Dental procedures

Once surgery is over, our team is able to monitor your loyal companion overnight until they are ready for at-home recovery.

How can I care for my pet post-operation?

Post-op care is just as important as the surgery itself. Once our team has performed the procedure we provide instructions on how to care for your pet during recovery. We provide pain medications to be administered at specific times to speed up their healing. Outside of their medications, you can also be gentler with them. Keep in mind that they may be limited in what they can do. They need to be comfortable and get as much rest as possible. You may also want to keep their food and water nearby so they won’t have to move around so much.
