The circumstances in which your pet may need surgery can vary widely, but we always approach the topic with great care and compassion. Even the most routine procedure can be stressful for both pets and their owners. That’s why we take the time to explain the type of surgery your pet will need, why they need it, and what costs you can expect. More important, we want to help you do right by your four-legged best friend and feel assured that you are taking the proper steps to giving them a better life.
Being a state-of-the-art, Fear Free animal hospital means that we always put your pet’s safety at the forefront of every treatment we provide. We promise that your companion will receive the best care before, during, and after their surgery.
Surgical Services We Offer
Our veterinarians have the experience and equipment to perform a wide range of soft tissue surgeries, including:
We can also enlist the services of a board-certified surgeon to perform the following orthopedic procedures:
- Cruciate ligament repair
- Patellar luxation
To increase your pet’s safety and comfort, we can perform certain surgeries with our Luxar CO2 laser. The laser seals nerve endings and blood vessels as it cuts, reducing bleeding, inflammation, pain, and recovery time. This method can be used for soft tissue procedures such as tumor removals, spays and neuters.
Any pets that will be having surgery at our animal hospital must undergo a thorough physical evaluation and diagnostic testing to screen for health problems. Our goal is always to reduce the potential risks associated with anesthesia as much as possible. We also implement stringent pain management protocols to keep your pet’s discomfort to an absolute minimum. Patients may receive absorbable or nonabsorbable sutures, depending on their procedure.
What You Can Expect
Your pet will be closely monitored during their surgery by one of our experienced veterinary assistants. An assistant will also remain by their side as they’re waking up in our recovery area, and provide them with warm blankets to keep them comfortable. We’ll contact you when your pet is ready to go home, and go over post-op recovery instructions when you arrive. If they are having any problems during their recuperation at home, don’t hesitate to call us. We’re always happy to help!
