Our skilled doctors and technicians are proficient in a variety of surgical procedures. Prior to scheduling surgery, we will discuss all treatment options available to you and your pet. Our goal is to allow you to fully understand the benefits and potential risks of surgery and make an informed decision about your pet’s care. Patients will need a full physical evaluation and blood work panel to ensure there are no preexisting conditions that could negatively affect their health under anesthesia.
Common reasons for pet surgery:
Spay and Neuter
Tumor removal or biopsy
Foreign body removal
What does surgery involve?
Surgery for pets is very similar to surgery for humans. During the pre-operative appointment, the necessary preparations for surgery will be discussed. It is important that you inform us of any medications your pet is taking. For most pets undergoing anesthesia, overnight fasting will be required. Upon the completion of surgery, you will be contacted by your doctor with an update. At discharge you will be informed of all care instructions for recovery. Most patients will go home later the same day, but with some surgeries, an overnight stay at our facility (or at a 24 hr care facility) is necessary so that your pet's recovery can be closely monitored and the appropriate care given.
We believe that pain management is a critical aspect of recovery. We make a concerted effort to provide your pet with the appropriate pain management medications to keep them comfortable.
If you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s surgery, or would like to schedule a surgery, please contact our office.
