The doctors are able to perform surgeries on the premises and care for pets both before and after surgical procedures. If surgery is recommended, a pre-surgical examination is performed to assess your pet’s health and ability to have surgery. Additionally, blood tests, blood pressure reading, and an ECG may be recommended. ECG is performed during surgery to monitor the pet.
Among the surgical procedures provided are:
- Spaying of female pets
- Neutering of male pets
- Tumor removal
- Abdominal procedures
- Exploratory surgery
- Dewclaw removal
- Declaw procedure
- Orthopedic repairs
- Ear flushing and surgical care
After surgery, pets are closely monitored by the doctors and staff. Most of our surgical patients are kept overnight for observation and released the following day. Technicians live on site, so care is available as needed. In addition, the doctors maintain close relationships with surgical specialists in the area. If necessary, patients can be referred to local specialists for care.
