Veterinary Surgery

Your pets are in the best hands when it comes to veterinary surgery.

We know how scary it can be to find out your cat or dog needs surgery. Even very simple, standard procedures such as spaying and neutering can still be nerve-wracking for pet parents. But here at Woodland Animal Hospital, our veterinary surgery services utilize the best equipment, techniques and veterinarians in caring for your pet.

What to Expect

If surgery is necessary, we will provide you and your pet with the best comfort and care possible. While anesthesia is typically very safe for pets, we always undergo an extremely thorough exam to determine the safest surgery plan for your pet. We want to be sure there is no hidden condition that could compromise your pet’s health during veterinary surgery.

Once we have a clear consensus of your pet’s health, we will guide you in how to prepare your pet for surgery.

Equipment and Care

We have the best, state-of-the-art equipment for our surgical services. Throughout surgery, your pet will have an intravenous catheter and intravenous fluids to keep him or her hydrated and result in a quicker recovery time post-surgery. Beyond this, we also perform our surgeries on heated tables to maintain body temperature. We use an ECG to monitor heart activity, a non-invasive blood pressure monitor and a pulse oximeter, which measures heart rate and oxygen concentration levels. Your pet will have his or her vitals monitored throughout and after surgery.

After Veterinary Surgery

Even after our surgical services, your pet will be constantly monitored to ensure a healthy recovery. We will keep your pet as comfortable as possible through this important and vulnerable time. This includes:

  • Regulating body temperature
  • Administering pain medication whenever necessary
  • Giving attention and love through the process
  • Fully explaining care instructions to the pet parent before taking the pet home
