Whether your pet is in need of a routine spay or neuter, a biopsy or removal of a suspicious-looking mass, or an emergency soft tissue repair surgery, the veterinarians at All Creatures Animal Hospital are prepared to perform the surgical procedures necessary to keep your pet’s tail wagging.

At All Creatures Animal Hospital, we are able to perform a wide range of soft tissue surgeries, including:

  • Spay and neuter procedures
  • Biopsy and mass removal
  • Dental extractions
  • Wound and laceration repair
  • Laparoscopic and exploratory surgeries

If your pet is in need of a more complicated procedure, our veterinary team maintains a positive working relationship with veterinarians throughout the area who specialize in specific types of surgical care. Depending on the surgical care your pet needs, we will refer you to the proper specialist and work with you both on coordinating your pet’s care and recovery.

Your Pet’s Surgery: Before, During, and After

We believe that as a pet owner, you should have all the necessary information you need to make an informed decision about your pet’s care and what to expect. At All Creatures Animal Hospital, our staff will be certain to discuss the details of your pet’s procedure with you in advance so you know what to expect.

Prior to surgery, we will run a pre-operative blood screening to ensure that your pet is well enough for surgery and anesthesia. Likewise, we will monitor your pet’s wellbeing throughout the procedure and make any adjustments necessary to help ensure a successful outcome.

Once the operation has been completed, we will discuss post-operative care with you and provide you with the necessary medications needed for pain management and to protect your pet from post-op infection.

If you have any questions about the procedures we perform, if you would like to discuss any questions you might have about an upcoming surgery, or if you are having any post-op concerns, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
