Surgical Services for Pets

When your pet has surgery scheduled, we want you to know that our team will do everything to come out successful and send your furry family home to a full recovery. Our hospital uses modern technology to monitor surgical procedures and to administer the best medicine to your beloved pets. You can be confident in the surgical procedures that our team performs to improve and save your pet’s lives.

What happens before a pet’s surgery?
Before surgery, a blood screen is conducted to determine how safe surgery will be for your pet. This blood test also assures the vet that your pet will be able to recover after the surgery. The blood screen reveals organ function such as kidney and liver blood counts and clotting in your pet. Kidney and liver function are important during surgery as they metabolize sedatives and anesthesia. During surgery, your pet will be given intravenous fluids to keep your pet companions hydrated and to maintain tissue fluid.

What types of surgery does your hospital offer?
Our team is highly trained and very experienced in safely performing surgeries on your fur friends. Here is a list of some surgeries that we offer at our hospital:

    • Spaying and neutering
    • Dental procedures
    • Orthopedic procedures
    • Tumour, cyst and foreign objects removal
    • Emergency surgery

How should I prepare my pet for surgery?
Special preparation prior to surgery may depend on your pet’s individual health issues and the surgery that will be performed on them. Our team will inform you of any special precautions to take before surgery, feel free to contact us at 204.452.0911 to learn more. There are two general guidelines to prepare for surgery and they include:

    • Ensure your pet vaccinations are up-to-date
    • No food or water by midnight before the day of surgery
