Choosing Who Performs Veterinary Surgery 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 are committed to providing the pinnacle of surgical care, employing cutting-edge surgical techniques and state-of-the-art technology within our general practice.

Prior to surgery, our patients undergo a screening process meticulously conducted by our veterinary professionals. This thorough assessment ensures that each procedure is executed under the safest possible conditions, tailored to the individual needs of your pet.

Our approach to administering anesthesia is both personalized and technologically advanced. Our highly trained veterinary staff customizes anesthetic protocols specifically for your pet’s requirements. This is complemented by the utilization of modern anesthetic equipment, ensuring precise and monitored administration throughout the entirety of the procedure.

Additionally, our facilities are thoughtfully equipped to prioritize the safety and comfort of our patients.

We maintain a comprehensive range of amenities, including:

  • Heated surgery tables
  • Advanced sterilization techniques
  • ECG and oxygen saturation monitors
  •  Intra-operative fluid delivery

Lastly, pain management is a crucial aspect of our surgical services. The right amount of pain relief significantly influences the outcome of a procedure.

Our recommended pain management approach depends on your pet’s condition and the type of surgical procedure they undergo.

It’s essential to understand that we don’t select pain medication arbitrarily. Why? Because the best way to manage pain isn’t through random choices. We carefully assess and tailor pain relief strategies to ensure optimal comfort for your pet.

Medicines and therapies we use to manage pain include the following:

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.

Routine surgeries performed in our clinic include:
