Our veterinary team takes every precaution to provide your dog/cat with the safest surgery as well as prioritizing their well-being and recovery before and after their procedure. Before every procedure, we share every detail with pet owners to ensure any questions or concerns you have after are addressed before the procedure.
What types of surgical procedures do you perform?
Our veterinarians provide many surgical services at our clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. However, since we want to ensure your dog/cat receives the best possible outcome, we occasionally refer them to specialists (board-certified, veterinary surgeons) to perform complex operations when we determine that advanced equipment or training will be beneficial. Some procedures we perform at our clinic include:
- Orthopedic surgery
- Dental surgery
- Soft tissue surgery
I’m worried about an upcoming surgery. What are your safety precautions?
It’s normal to feel a bit nervous before your dog or cat’s procedure but you can trust they’re in good hands, both on and off the operating table. We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing before surgery to ensure a safe and smooth procedure. During the procedure, a veterinary technician will continually assess your dog or cat’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk. We also provide appropriate pain medication after the procedure to alleviate pain and support a healthy recovery.
Are dogs and cats only monitored during complicated procedures?
During every surgery, our highly qualified team of veterinarians and registered veterinary technicians monitor all patients to ensure their safety. We closely observe every procedure, regardless of whether it’s routine or more advanced. The type of anesthesia we use will depend upon the procedure. Some procedures require general anesthesia, while others only need local anesthesia. If you have questions about our surgical procedures, please contact us at 416-928-6761.
