Surgery

Our first steps in preparing for any surgical procedure is a through consultation and discussion of all treatment options in detail with you. Even routine surgeries are stressful and can be nerve-wracking to you the owner.  We always go over the details and discuss each step of any procedure for your benefit and to help put you to ease by helping you understand what to expect. 

After all operations we keep pets for observation while anesthesia wears off. It is important to monitor then during the initial stages of any routine procedure to ensure the safety of your pet. Once your pet is ready to return home they will be sent with detailed post-operative care instructions along with pain management medication. We take recovery of any procedure very serious, so we are actively concerned about keeping your pet stable and as pain-free as possible. 

SOFT TISSUE SURGERY

Soft tissue surgery relates to any surgical procedure not relating to joints or bones. These procedures can be as simple as routine elective procedures like spaying or neutering your pet or very complex such as intra-abdominal surgical procedures. With careful evaluation from our staff of medical professionals, our team will provide the best care possible for and strive to make your pet’s procedure as comfortable and as safe as possible throughout all stages of the procedure.

A lot of preparation goes into any surgical event. We do not want your pet to suffer and we take great care and all preventative steps to ensure your pet is comfortable before, during and after their surgical procedures. To ensure safe and comfortable visit our technicians constantly monitor your pet during anesthesia and recovery using the very best in modern monitoring equipment.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Post-operative pain is very common and a very common concern for pet owners and doctors alike. We understand what it is like to have pain or to be going through pain. It is usually only when we verbalize our pain to others that it is even recognized and with pet they will suffer in silence unless we recognize the symptoms. As with any pain, during and after operations we must seek to keep the patients comfortable to aid in their recovery.

PRE & POST OPERATIVE CARE

Many surgeries are routine such as spay or neuter and most pets will be ready to go home the same day as their surgery is performed. We work closely with you and your pet to determine their condition as it relates to their surgery and their individual potential for complications. Once your pet is released we provide detailed instructions to care for your pet’s post-operative recovery. Each recovery plan is individualized to your pet and we work with you to ensure as speedy a recovery as possible.

If your pet experiences any unexpected or unforeseen complications, we advise you to contact our clinic to determine the best course of action. Depending on the circumstances and whether a post-operative emergency occurs during recovery, our veterinarian my recommend urgent care or emergency care with one of our emergency partners.
