Common Surgical Procedures We Offer

There are various reasons why your pet would require surgery. Common surgical procedures we provide at our Bloomington office include:

  • Elective surgeries- Many pet owners wish to have their pet spayed or neutered. Not only does this surgery prevent unwanted litters, but it also helps eliminate unwanted behaviors.
  • Orthopedic surgery- It's not uncommon for pets to have joint pain or arthritis as they age. Our veterinarian can help alleviate the discomfort your pet may have.
  • Dental surgery- Our veterinarians can help with various conditions like broken/loose teeth, fractured jaws, cavities, or gum disease.
  • Emergencies- There are circumstances when emergency surgery would be needed. These situations could include severe bleeding, injury to the eyes, inability to pass feces or urinate, choking, heatstroke, extreme vomiting or diarrhea, or if they haven't eaten in more than 24 hours. Never hesitate to contact our veterinary hospital for any of these situations. 

How We Manage Your Pet's Surgery 

Our veterinary team ensures safe and professional surgical procedures for every operation. Before any surgery, our veterinarians will discuss the process with you and what to expect afterward. It's our mission that we are here to help provide your pet the best care possible. 

Preparing for Pet Surgery

Generally, you should expect to have your pet not eat or drink anything for at least 12 hours before surgery. This process allows the surgery to run smoothly and to reduce the likelihood of complications. We will also run blood tests to ensure your pet is capable of being administered anesthesia. Following the surgery, we provide post-operative care with follow-up appointments along with instructions on how to help your pet recover at home.
