Veterinary Surgery Practices & Techniques

Veterinary Surgery Practices & Techniques at PetCare Veterinary Hospital

The surgical specialists at PetCare are board certified by the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. Our surgeons are trained to provide the latest and most effective surgical techniques for your pet.

A visit to the PetCare surgical service begins with a consultation with one of our friendly, highly trained surgeons. After reviewing the history of your petís illness or injury and performing a complete examination of your pet, they will discuss treatment options that may include surgery and formulate a plan that is right for both you and your pet.

If surgery is recommended, you can feel comfortable knowing PetCare uses only the safest anesthetics. Doctors and technicians monitor vital signs such as your petís heartbeat, oxygen level, and blood pressure. Immediately following surgery, your surgeon will update you on your petís recovery. Patients awaken in our critical care unit, where they are monitored and kept warm and comfortable.

A technician is present during the entire recovery process to ensure the safety of your pet. Patient care is provided 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We believe that keeping our patients comfortable is of the greatest importance and that alleviating pain is an essential part of your petís care.

Our surgeons are well recognized for their expertise in a wide variety of surgical procedures, including:

  • Tibial plateau leveling osteotomy
  • Reconstructive joint surgery
  • Total hip replacement
  • Fracture repair
  • Arthroscopy
  • Abdominal and thoracic surgery
  • Oncologic (cancer) surgery

Staffed 24 hours daily, PetCare provides comprehensive post-operative recovery and pain management in a caring and comfortable environment. Our surgeons routinely utilize pre-emptive multimodal therapy, local anesthetics, epidural anesthesia, and medications for pain relief at home.
