Our Dog & Cat Surgical Services
Our veterinarian can perform a variety of soft-tissue surgeries for cats and dogs that include:
- Spaying and neutering
- Tumor removals
- Cystotomy (bladder surgery)
- Wound repair
- Prolapsed nictitating membrane (cherry eye)
- …and more
At Awesome Care, all anesthetized patients will have a private nurse monitoring them from the beginning of the surgery, to the end of the surgery.
We are pleased to offer cutting-edge laser surgery at our animal hospital. We can perform spays, neuters, tumor removals, and more with our surgical laser, which yields the following benefits:
- Less bleeding
- Less swelling
- Less pain
- A smaller scar
- Faster healing and recovery
Unlike in traditional surgery, the surgical laser actually cauterizes nerve endings and blood vessels as it ‘cuts’ the tissue, reducing blood loss and pain. The laser provides our veterinarian with greater control and precision, resulting in less trauma and an easier recovery for the patient.
Dog & Cat Surgery Safety Protocols
We recommend pre-surgical blood testing for all of our patients, but require it for senior pets (ages 7 and up) and pets who have had medical issues in the past. Running diagnostics before your pet’s surgery can help us detect underlying illnesses or other problems that could jeopardize their health while they are under anesthesia. If we do identify a problem, we will let you know and if necessary, postpone your pet’s surgery to prevent complications.
All dogs and cats undergoing surgery will be closely monitored throughout their entire procedure by a trained nurse as well as monitoring devices. Pain medication and antibiotics are administered prior to surgery, as needed, to minimize your pet’s discomfort. They will be given warm, soft blankets to keep them comfortable while they recover. In some cases, our patients may be hand held until fully awake.
