Choosing Who Operates on Your Pet
Who performs surgery on your pet is a big decision often confusing most pet owners.
The dilemma is—do you choose your regular veterinarian or do you choose a specialty surgeon instead?
Well, it depends because both have advantages.
You see most general veterinarians have performed thousands of surgeries on pets. So, they have, most importantly, the experience. They know how to skin a cat (for lack of a better term) in more than one way.
On the other hand, the specialty surgeon has the academic knowledge, training and experience but the experience is in a totally different environment than that of the general veterinarian. The experience relies on testing, more testing and then prognosis, risk factors, percentages, and other stuff that ultimately may or may not matter.
Everybody does surgery in different ways and you will have to choose.
But here's the thing...if you want your pet to have fast, quick, straight-forward, pain free surgery at an affordable price, that's what we do.
Here's the Surgery We Offer
We offer the most advanced surgery and surgical technology currently available in general practice.
Before surgery, all patients are meticulously screened to ensure a safe procedure.
Then, anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet and administered with modern anesthetic equipment by our carefully trained veterinary staff.
Additionally, our facilities are equipped with the following for safety and comfort:
• Heated surgery tables
• Advanced sterilization techniques
• ECG and oxygen saturation monitors
• Intra-operative fluid delivery
Lastly, pain management constitutes an integral part of our surgical services. Many times, adequate, but not too much, pain medicine determines the success or failure of the procedure.
The type of procedure and your pet's condition dictates our recommended pain management protocols.
In fact, it's important for you to know that we do not arbitrarily choose pain medicine. Why? Because it's not the best way to manage pain.
Medicines and therapies we use to manage pain include the following:
- Laser therapy
- Lidocaine infusion
Remember, our goal is the safest, most efficient, practical, pain free surgical procedures for your pet.
And that's what you'll get if we operate on your pet.
Occasionally, we refer to surgical specialists when needed for disc ruptures and complicated fractures to ensure the best care for your pet. But, most surgery is done in house.
Specific Surgery We Provide Includes:
- Cranial Cruciate Tears
- Patella Luxation
- Fracture Repair
- Routine Spay/Neuter
- Abdominal Exploration
- Tumor Removal
- Ovary Sparing Spay
