Pet surgery saves the lives of pets in need. At Chatham Animal Hospital in Cary NC, we're proud to offer pet surgical services to our patients. Whether your pet is in need of emergency surgery for an injury or your pet is undergoing a standard surgical procedure like spaying or neutering, the skilled veterinarians at Chatham Animal Hospital can help keep your pet comfortable and safe while he or she undergoes surgical treatment.
Before surgery begins, we'll provide pre-surgical treatment to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to undergo surgical care. We'll perform pre-surgical blood work, check your pet for signs of infection and evaluate the functioning of your pet's organs.
We also take time before the day of the surgery to ensure that you understand the type of care your pet will need after surgery. In the event that your pet has a negative reaction to the surgery, we can provide post-surgical pet care to keep your pet safe and healthy.
Our surgical services are designed to ensure that your pet is comfortable and safe throughout the surgical procedure. We use anesthesia to prevent pain throughout the process. During the surgery, we'll monitor your pet's ECG, pulse ox, and other vital signs. This will help ensure that your pet is safe while the surgery is taking place.
When your pet's surgery is over, we'll offer medical laser therapy to stimulate the soft tissues surrounding the site of the incision. This helps your pet feel less pain and make a faster recovery.
