Many pet owners are curious about what is involved when their pet is
placed under anesthesia.
At The Pet Care Clinic, your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priority
so you can be sure that your pet will receive only the best and safest
anesthetic and surgical care.
Our procedures include the following:
Experienced Monitoring Support—our trained technician uses
state-of-the-art anesthetic monitors to continuously monitor
IV Catheter Placement—fluids are given during surgery to maintain blood pressure and to help your pet recover quickly from the
Pain Medication—is administered prior to and after surgery to
ensure your pet’s comfort. Your pet will also be sent home with
Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work—ensures your pet is healthy enough to undergo a surgical procedure and that its internal organs can safely process the anesthesia.
Laser Therapy —following each and every surgery, we perform laser therapy. This enables the surgical site to heal a lot faster and
Heat Therapy—every surgical patient's body temperature is
monitored and placed on a circulating water heating pad.
This specific type of pad prevents any chance of thermal burns and
keeps the patient at an optimal body temperature.
Even in recovery, the patient is kept warm with heating pads.
The Pet Care Clinic provides surgical services for dogs and cats.
We offer a clean and well-equipped facility and experienced team
to provide your pet with high quality surgical care in a stress-free and relaxing environment.
All of our procedures include a thorough pre-surgical physical
examination, surgical monitoring and lots of care and attention
throughout the procedure.
In addition to spaying and neutering, we also offer the following
soft tissue surgeries:
This involves removing the ovaries and uterus to prevent reproduction.
This is a major procedure that involves general anesthesia and a
proper pain management plan.
We recommend spaying for all females at age 6 months.
This surgery removes the testicles to prevent reproduction. Neutering requires general anesthesia but is less invasive than spaying. We recommend neutering for all male pets between 4 and 6 months of age.
Declawing involves the removal of the nail and last bone in each toe.
This should only be done if your cat cannot be trained to use a
scratching post and will remain indoors. Declawing involves a general anesthesia, and both pre-operative and post-operative pain control is a priority for this procedure. Patients generally stay at the hospital
overnight to ensure there is no bleeding. Bandages are applied and removed before the patient goes home.
If your dog is born with extra toes on the rear feet, we may recommend their removal so they do not get caught on objects or become infected.
This is a type of soft tissue surgery that involves the removal of growths
for medical or cosmetic reasons. Growths can be non-cancerous (benign)
or cancerous (malignant) and should be sent to a pathologist to
determine a treatment plan post-surgery.
We offer many more types of surgeries, such as cystotomies,
gastropexies, GI blockages, lacerations, etc.
