Surgery can be a source of anxiety and stress for many pet owners. Maybe you worry about whether your pet will be well cared for, or perhaps you have concerns about adequate precautions and monitoring. Let us address your concerns. Whether your pet needs minor surgery or a complex procedure, call us. Let's discuss how our surgical services can benefit your pet.
Routine surgical procedures are normal day to day procedures. Typically our routine surgical patients are hospitalized overnight for 24 hour post surgery monitoring. The next morning one of our doctors preforms a physical examination and the patient is released that afternoon.
Orthopedic surgical procedures are less common and are much more labor intensive. This also translates into a longer recovery time for the patient. Typically our orthopedic surgical patients are hospitalized for 7 to 14 days depending on the procedure. During this time we work with the patients in the areas of physical therapy as well as pain management.
Soft Tissue Surgeries
Over the past 30 years, our veterinarians have developed skills in numerous soft tissue proceds.With experience and specialized training, we are able to offer surgical services for most conditions that require surgery to correct. We provide 24 hour medical case management following every surgery to ensure that each patient receives the best care possible. Pain management and anesthesia is tailor made for every patient to provide the highest level of comfort and safety. We also have LigaSure, a cutting and ligating system that helps minimize bleeding and shortens surgery time. It is used in many of our major abdominal mass removals and soft palate resections.
