Surgery


There are many reasons that your pet may need a surgical procedure, some routine and some not-so routine. Regardless of the cause, we are here for you and your little one.

Before any procedure, we will review all options available for you and your pet, as well as explain what will happen during your pet’s surgery. In order to offer the best, most comprehensive care for your little one, we suggest pre-op blood work to check things like red and white blood cell count and glucose levels, as well as kidney and liver functions. We highly recommend IV catheters during surgery. This gives us direct access to a vein during surgery, as well as the ability to deliver fluids during surgery. Medications to control both inflammation and pain will be sent home along with any post-op care instructions and E-collars are available if your cat or dog is likely to chew or lick at their stitches.

Services such as FeLV/FIV and heartworm testing, vaccinations, and flea, tick, and heartworm prevention are also available if you would like them added on. This means your pet will have to come back to our office less often, making their lives easier and less stressful, and your life less hectic.

If you would like to set a surgical appointment for your cat or dog, please call our clinic during business hours. Your pet may be dropped off the night before, or morning of, their appointment and, if desired, all surgical patients may spend the night of their surgery at our clinic at no extra charge.
