Surgery - My Best Friend Veterinary Center

Surgery

Surgical procedures often are a necessary component of your pet’s general health care plan. My Best Friend Veterinary Center provides the highest quality surgical care, recovery and pain management for your pet. Our clinic contains state-of-the-art surgical and anesthetic equipment to perform a variety of surgical procedures.

Prior to surgery, your pet undergoes a full physical examination; we use this examination to develop an anesthesia protocol for your pet. We recommend pre-op blood work to ensure all is well metabolically. During surgery, your pet’s vital signs, oxygen levels, and heart rate are monitored using advanced monitoring equipment. A trained veterinary assistant is on hand to monitor your pet’s condition during surgery. All pets undergoing surgery are treated with multiple pain-management techniques.

Dog and Cat Surgeries Performed by Us:

  • Spay and Neuter
  • Declawing
  • Soft Tissue Surgery, including:
    • exploratory surgery
    • cystotomy
    • anal gland removal
    • tumor removal

We try to avoid hospitalization because animals do better in a familiar environment; however, when hospitalization is necessary we encourage you to call for updates and arrange for visits.  We love your dogs and cats as much as you do, and desire to make surgical procedures of any type as painless and stress-free as possible—for the patient and owner!
