We understand that surgery is not an easy experience for you or your pet. At Gates County Animal Clinic we strive to ensure your pet’s surgical procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We endeavor to provide our clients with a clear understanding of why a particular procedure is necessary, what the procedure entails, proper post-operative care, and convey any other information you may need to feel comfortable that you are making the right choice for your pet.
We are proud of the quality of surgical care we provide and the wide range of surgical procedures we offer. Beyond spays and neuters, Gates County Animal Clinic performs an array of soft tissue surgeries such as gastrointestinal, spleen, bladder, mass removals, and more.
We believe that identifying and relieving pain is important to the recovery of your pet. Therefore, pain management is an important aspect of our pre-surgical and post-surgical protocols. At discharge, we may send additional pain management medication home with you and your pet after providing a thorough explanation of its proper use and dosage.
Gates County Animal Clinic is able to offer laser surgery for a number of soft tissue procedures such as spays and neuters, mass removals and more. Laser surgery minimizes bleeding, reduces pain and swelling and promotes more rapid healing. When your pet undergoes laser surgery, he or she will face less post-operative pain and discomfort. Laser surgery also is more precise and greatly reduces the risk of infection.
Anesthesia & Monitoring
Anesthesia and cardiovascular monitoring are important, integral aspects of every surgery we perform. For this reason, your pet has access to the best and most advanced anesthetic administration and cardiovascular monitoring equipment and protocols available.
Anesthesia is individualized for your pet based on a number of factors, which includes the type of procedure, his or her preexisting conditions, blood test values, age, breed, and prior anesthetic experience.
During anesthesia and surgery, your pet is constantly monitored by a trained veterinary technician, using our advanced monitoring system. This system continuously monitors your pet’s arterial oxygen level, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and core body temperature.
