Is Pet Surgery Safe?

We do everything we can to make surgery as safe as possible for pets. While every surgical procedure carries its risks, we have the ability to reduce these risks significantly by:

  • Performing a thorough exam and recommended blood testing prior to your pet’s surgery to assess their health and organ function
  • Monitoring your pet through their entire surgery beginning to end with the aid of a veterinary technician and top-of-the-line monitoring equipment
  • Having warm tables to keep our patients’ temperatures at a healthy level (and to prevent hypothermia)
  • We do our very best to ensure your pet is comfortable and diligently monitored after surgery to ensure a safe, uneventful recovery.

Pet Surgeries We Perform

Surgery is often necessary for the prevention or treatment of certain health conditions. For example, spaying and neutering help with the prevention of reproductive cancers, while exploratory surgery can assist us in treating an ongoing issue.

  • Mass/tumor removal

We Offer Laser Surgery at Both Hospitals

Instead of traditional scalpel surgery, you have the option of choosing laser surgery for your pet’s procedure. Laser surgery involves using a laser to make a surgical incision. As it vaporizes the tissue in its path, the laser seals blood vessels and nerve endings, which reduces bleeding and pain. Furthermore, it does not crush the tissue as it cuts, allowing your pet a smoother healing and recovery time.
