Surgery Services For Your Pet
The surgical needs of pets vary from routine spays and neuters, to wound repair, lump removals, dental extractions and more involved orthopedic procedures. Crown Town Animal Hospital’s experienced veterinarians perform surgeries every weekday utilizing some of the latest surgical techniques and anesthesia monitoring.
We know that pet surgeries can be a stressful experience for both the patient and their owners. We suggest that you schedule a pre-surgical visit to review any concerns with your doctor or to learn more about the procedure. We can also check your pet for any health irregularities that may result in an adverse reaction to surgical anesthesia. It’s critical that you follow any instructions that your veterinarian provides prior to surgery, such as diet restrictions, to ensure the safety of your pet while under anesthesia.
After your pet’s procedure, our staff will work with you to create a plan for post-op recovery and pain management. This might include a prescription for pain medicine or an overnight stay so that our staff can monitor their recovery. After the surgery, you may be asked to return to the clinic for a post-op visit or to remove any staples or stitches.
