Before Surgery

Before your pet goes into surgery, we conduct a preoperative exam to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for the procedure. Additionally, we recommend bloodwork before the surgery to test your pet’s liver and kidney functions. This is done to confirm that their body can filter out the anesthesia necessary to perform the surgery.

Our compassionate veterinarians will discuss the surgery and any potential complications with you. We are always happy to answer any questions you have. All pets are unique and have different health and emotional needs, so we understand how important it is to take the time to address any concerns you may have.

During Surgery

During the animal surgery, your pet will be monitored by a state-of-the-art monitoring system (which is used for every pet under anesthesia).

We use the most current anesthetics to ensure that our patients are safe, comfortable and pain-free during their procedure.

After Surgery

When the surgery is complete and your pet is ready to be discharged, we will provide you with instructions for basic home care. It’s vitally important for you to follow these instructions precisely, whether they include wound care or simple administration of medications.

Read over the instructions before you leave and ask any questions you might have. Find out when your pet needs to return for a follow-up examination or to have sutures removed. It’s advisable to make a note of our after-hours contact information in case you have any concerns about your pet’s well-being once you’re home.

Different Types of Pet Surgeries

Our fully trained and experienced veterinary and technical staff at Complete Pet Care Animal Hospital ensures the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet. We are prepared to perform a variety of surgeries including:

General/Soft Tissue Surgeries

These surgeries are usually minimally invasive and the most of common include: tumor removal, abdominal surgery, foreign body removal, wound repair, soft palette resection, eye surgeries, surgical ear flushing, laparoscopy.

Spay and Neuters

Slightly more complicated than a general surgery, spaying or neutering is a common and often-recommended surgery for pets. These surgeries help control the stray animal population and can actually improve and extend your pet’s life.

Orthopedic Surgeries

These types of surgeries can help stabilize a fractured bone, deteriorating joints or otherwise compromised soft tissues. Orthopedic surgeries vary in complexity and length of recovery. Their main purpose is to restore or maintain your pet’s mobility.

Specialized Procedures and Advanced Testing

We offer specialized services such as advanced sterilization techniques, ECGs to assess the heart, blood pressure and oxygen saturation monitoring, intensive after-surgery care, and full blood testing.

The surgeries listed above can be scheduled with any of our veterinarians. Our veterinarians and our Complete Pet Care team will help you prepare for the surgery and give you an at-home plan for your pet’s recovery so they are healthy again as quickly as possible.

We always partner with pet owners to ensure they feel comfortable with the surgery, have a clear understanding of why it’s being recommended, as well as how it will help maintain or improve their pet’s quality of life.

Animal surgery can be performed on pets such as cats and dogs at Complete Pet Care Animal Hospital.
