Our surgical suite is equipped with the latest technology and we use progressive protocols to ensure your pet has a safe surgical experience.
We use the safest anesthesia for all surgical procedures we perform whether it be inhaled anesthesia or injected. We realize anesthesia makes some owners uneasy, but here is our reasoning. First, being aware of what’s going on, even if somewhat sedated, is terrifying and sometimes painful for a pet. Second, our veterinarian needs to operate on a quiet, still animal in order to perform surgery. Rest assured that the anesthesia we use has been tested many times over and is not only pet-safe but used routinely in Pediatric Human medicine .
Before surgery, our vet will tell you everything that will be done and what to expect. Most pets will be required to have labwork performedprior to surgery to make sure there is no infection or unknown condition that might compromise a successful surgery. After being given the green light, your pet is can be anesthetized and surgery can begin. During the surgery, a veterinary technician closely watches the monitoring equipment that measures your pet’s heart and respiration rate while our surgeon performs the procedure.
When the surgery is over, your pet is moved to a calm and quiet area where pets are monitored closely to assure a smooth recovery. Depending on the complexity of the surgery and the post-op condition of the pet, your pet will be able to return home sometime the same day.
As preventative surgeries, not only do we perform these most frequently, they provide pets with tremendous health benefits and help to curb the numbers of abandoned pets roaming streets and crowding shelters. For female cats and dogs, we remove the entire reproductive organs. With the uterus and ovaries gone, there is no chance of future ovarian or uterine cancer. For males, we remove the testicles which means they can never contract testicular cancer. In addition, there are numerous behavior benefits such as no more spraying or marking, howling, or roaming.
Soft tissue animal surgery involves repairing ligaments, tendons and muscles, removing blockages from the intestinal tract, taking biopsies and removing lumps tumors and bladder stones to name just a few. Dental surgery such as overgrown gums , are also important soft tissue surgeries.
When your pet needs surgery, our veterinarian is the one to trust.
