At the Animal Hospital of Oceanway we understand that any surgery, no matter how minor or routine, can be a stressful experience for you and your pet. You want to be sure your cherished companion will be well cared for and receive the best possible chance at a positive outcome. We understand the questions and concerns you’re dealing with and we want to put your mind at ease. Rest assured that when you bring your furry family member to us for surgery, our team of highly skilled, caring and compassionate professionals will provide the very best available surgical care.
The surgical procedures performed at the Animal Hospital of Oceanway include a wide variety of soft tissue surgeries, such as lacerations, bite wound repair, abscess surgery, tumor removal, spay, and neuter procedures. We carefully monitor our patients before, during and following all procedures to ensure their safety and comfort at all times while in our care.
Before we ever even admit your pet for a surgical procedure, we take several precautions to reduce risk at every turn. We’ll examine your pet and run a series of diagnostic tests to make sure he or she is well enough to undergo surgery. This is especially important for animals that are older or that suffer from existing medical conditions. Once we know it’s safe to proceed, we’ll develop a customized pain management plan that is tailored specifically to your pet.
When your pet has been safely anesthetized, our veterinarians will get to work to diligently complete the procedure as efficiently and effectively as possible. Throughout the entire process, our compassionate, well trained nurses and assistants closely monitor your companion using the most modern equipment available. This monitoring will continue once surgery is complete and your pet is relocated to our quiet, comfortable recovery area.
You can expect a phone call/or text shortly after surgery is finished, at which point one of our staff members will explain how everything went and arrange a time for you to come for your pet. Before bringing your companion home, we’ll carefully go over any aftercare instructions we may have, which may also include an appropriate plan to manage your pet’s postsurgical pain. We want to help get them well and on the road to a speedy, comfortable recovery.
Whatever your pet’s surgical needs, you need not worry. The team at the Animal Hospital of Oceanway is prepared to provide you both with a positive, stress-free experience and have your furry friend back on his or her feet again as soon as possible.
