How We Make Surgery Safer for Pets

Because we follow strict surgery guidelines to the letter, there are many precautions we take before, during, and after your pet’s surgery to keep them as healthy as possible. These include:

  • Requiring pre-surgical blood work for all pets, regardless of their age. This allows us to check for underlying issues and lessen anesthesia risks.
  • Pets also receive an IV catheter so we can quickly provide fluids to maintain blood pressure, along with pain medication before and after surgery.
  • Using advanced equipment and having experienced technicians to monitor your pet’s condition during surgery.
  • Keeping your pet comfortable and warm with soft blankets and providing attentive post-operative care.
  • Monitoring your pet as they’re waking up and sending you home with discharge instructions to help your pet through the rest of their recovery.

Pet Surgeries Our Doctors Perform

Many of the surgical procedures we offer are of the soft tissue variety, including:

  • Spays and neuters
  • Mass removals
  • Laceration repair
  • Abdominal surgery
  • Gastrointestinal surgery
  • Eye surgery

...and more

However, we can also address certain orthopedic issues by doing lateral suture repairs, stabilizing some cruciate injuries, and performing tail or digit amputations as needed.

Helping Your Pet Recover at Home

The care you provide your pet at home is just as important as the care we give them at our hospital. We’ll send you home with clear instructions and additional pain medication to keep your pet comfortable over the next few days. If you have any questions for us in the meantime or have observed anything unusual, please contact us today.
