Services | SURGERY
As pet owners ourselves, we know how difficult it can be to hear that your pet needs surgery. But when surgery is called for, you can rely on Campbell Park Animal Hospital with complete confidence. We will make sure you understand the reason for the surgery, the procedure and anesthesia involved, and all the details of recovery. We are here for you every step of the way.
We provide a wide variety of surgical services at our hospital including routine spay and neuters, soft-tissue, and orthopedic surgeries. Your pet’s care, not our own agenda, is of the utmost importance. That’s why we do not hesitate to refer patients to board-certified veterinary surgeons at specialty facilities if necessary to perform more complex operations.
Our advanced surgical equipment includes:
- Radio-surgical unit, allowing for little or no bleeding during surgery
- Pulse oximeter monitor
- Electrocardiology monitor
- Blood pressure monitoring
- Heated surgical table
- Sevoflurane/Isoflurane anesthesia
At Campbell Park Animal Hospital, we provide the safest surgical/anesthetic experience possible. The more information our doctors have about the animal before and during a procedure, the lower the risk of a problem. Consequently, our doctors recommend IV catheter placement, electronic monitoring of vital signs, and pre-surgical blood chemistry with CBC (complete blood count) before any anesthetic procedure.
An IV catheter provides venous access and proper cardiovascular support during anesthesia. We recommend electronic monitoring (blood pressure, pulse oximetry, EKG) to screen for and identify specific cardiac problems. Blood chemistries provide information about potential complications when anesthesia is administered. While we always utilize the safest anesthetic protocols possible, we nevertheless make these recommendations for all animals undergoing anesthesia.
During the check-in process for all anesthesia patients, our technicians will discuss these options to help you make the best choices for your pet.
