Surgery

Your pet is in great hands.

Surgery can be a source of anxiety and stress for many pet owners. Maybe you worry about whether your pet will be well cared for, or perhaps you have concerns about adequate precautions and monitoring. Not to worry, Hometown Veterinary Clinic dots every “I” and crosses every “t” when it comes to surgical care for your pet. Whether your pet needs minor surgery or a complex procedure, call us. Let’s discuss how our surgical services can benefit your pet. From common surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to less common surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care for your pet’s surgical needs.

When your pet is undergoing routine or expected surgery at Hometown Veterinary Clinic, pre-surgery blood work will be conducted to assure strong internal health. All patients are given a pre-surgery exam in the morning. The surgery will be done during the day and routine surgeries usually go home that evening. More complicated cases may require a longer stay.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment and a patient warming system which helps us track your companion’s vital signs, pain levels, and keeps your pet warm during surgery.

When your pet is ready to go home, we will review your postoperative care and medication instructions. If any questions arise after your pet returns home or at any other time during the postoperative period, call us. We welcome your questions and will do all we can to help your pet recover fully.
