All Creatures Animal Hospital in Amelia, OH has a fully-equipped surgical suite that allows our veterinary team to perform a wide range of cat and dog surgeries. Your pet’s safety is always our highest priority, which is why we take precautions before, during, and after the procedure to keep them healthy, stable, and comfortable. These include:
- A pre-anesthetic exam and blood work
- Full equipment and technician monitoring of vital signs, including oxygen levels and heart rate
- Administering anesthesia based on your pet’s age, weight, and health history
- Post-op monitoring
- Providing your pet with the appropriate pain management (including take-home medication)
We’re dedicated to making every surgery a stress-free experience for our clients and patients. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
Why Choose Laser Surgery over Traditional Scalpel Surgery?
We can perform many of our soft tissue procedures with our sterile surgical laser, which vaporizes, rather than cuts, tissue. This prevents the surrounding tissues from being crushed and bruised, which reduces post-op discomfort and swelling. What’s more, your pet should experience less bleeding and be less at risk for infection, since the laser kills bacteria in its path.
Is My Pet Going to be in Pain After Their Surgery?
Along with keeping your pet safe during surgery, we also want to make sure they feel as little pain as possible afterward. We administer pain relief medication prior to their surgery, during as needed, and we can provide you with oral medication to take home. Some discomfort should be expected, but it doesn’t have to inhibit your pet’s recovery.
