Surgical Procedures We Perform
Our compassionate team is here for your pet when they need routine or non-routine surgical care. We boast a fully-equipped surgical suite with the latest anesthesia monitoring equipment to keep your pet safe as we operate. We are proud to offer everything from routine spays and neuters to non-routine orthopedic surgeries. Our goal is always to enhance your pet’s quality of life!
Prior to any surgical procedure, our team will conduct a full physical exam of your pet, including laboratory tests. This step is important to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to undergo surgery with anesthesia. We also use pre-surgical diagnostics to ensure that surgery is the best treatment option for your pet.
Aftercare for Your Pet
After your pet comes home, correct aftercare is essential to making sure they heal comfortably and correctly. Our Houston veterinarians will equip you with resources to ensure that your pet gets everything they need while they recover.
Post-surgical aftercare usually includes:
- Moderating or monitoring your pet’s activity – Your pet should limit their activity while they heal so they don’t reinjure themselves.
- Feeding your pet according to your surgeon’s orders – Your pet may not be able to eat immediately following their surgery; we’ll let you know when they are allowed to eat and drink regularly again.
- Monitoring or inspecting the surgical site – Your pet should be prevented from scratching or licking their wound. Watch out for signs of infection!
- Administering medication – Your pet may be sent home with painkillers, antibiotics, or other medication that will help them heal. We’ll give you detailed instructions on how to administer their medicine correctly.
In addition to the measures described above, we will schedule a follow-up visit to ensure that they are healing correctly.
