State-of-the-Art Pet Surgery
We know that hearing the word “surgery” about your pet can make you uneasy, but it doesn’t have to. That’s because at All Creatures Veterinary Clinic & Lodge, our surgical facility was designed with your pet’s safety and comfort in mind. We have a fully trained veterinary and technical staff to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet. If necessary, we have the option of a board-certified surgeon for consultations as well.
About Our Surgical Facility
Our surgical suite features heated surgery tables for greater comfort. Because we are an AAHA-accredited hospital, we use only the safest, most modern technology and techniques. These include advanced sterilization techniques, ECG and oxygen saturation monitors, and intensive after-surgery care. To ensure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery and anesthesia, we also administer full pre-anesthetic blood testing.
Surgeries We Perform
As part of the most advanced surgical procedures available, we perform many procedures laparascopically (keyhole surgery) or with a laser—both of which are minimally invasive. Some of the most common procedures we perform in house include:
- Orthopedic procedures
- Reproductive surgery
- Abdominal surgery
- Exploratory surgery
- Tumor removal
- Wound care and reconstruction
What to Expect After Surgery
Once your pet is released back to your care after surgery, we will provide you with instructions for at-home care. We’ll also give you antibiotics and/or pain medications, depending on the procedure performed. It’s normal for your pet to seem a little sluggish and to want to sleep within the 24 hours after surgery. However, if you have any questions or concerns about how your pet is recovering, don’t hesitate to contact us at (330) 925-4910.
