Veterinary Surgical Procedures
Pet Surgeries In The Vestavia Hills, AL Area
Surgical procedures are often a necessary part of your pet’s general health care plan, and at Pet Wellness Animal Hospital, we offer the highest quality surgical care, recovery and pain management for your pet.
Our highly-trained veterinarians perform a wide-range of surgical procedures, including:
- Emergency surgery (laceration repair, wound repair, foreign object removal)
- Soft tissue/general surgery(i.e., growth removal)
- Feline declawing (in cases where medically necessary or if all alternatives have been exhausted)
- Fracture repair
Prior to surgery, we carefully screen each pet to be sure your pet is healthy for surgery. We recommend pre-surgical blood work so we can evaluate your pet’s kidney, liver and heart function prior to undergoing anesthesia.
Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring
We utilize the safest, multi-modal anesthesia techniques available and provide a similar level of patient monitoring you would receive if you were having surgery. Anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. We use ECG monitoring during surgery to monitor your pet’s blood pressure, respiration, heart activity, oxygen saturation and temperature.
At Pet Wellness Animal Hospital, your pet’s pain relief is our top priority. We ensure your pet has minimal pain before, during and after surgery and utilize multiple therapies to control pain so that your pet is as comfortable as possible until they are fully recovered.
