Dr. Lambourne and Dr. Wolter perform most of the soft tissue surgeries at our veterinary hospital. We call on two Board Certified Veterinary Surgeons for complicated operations and orthopedic procedures. There are many surgeries that we can perform at our animal hospital. Here is a list of just a few of them:
gastric and intestinal surgery
cystotomies (bladder surgery)
tumor (mass) removal from most any location
eye and eyelid surgery
internal organ biopsies
repair of fractures, ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) tears, patella (knee cap) luxation and more...
Anesthesia We use a variety of anesthetic drugs that we can tailor to your companion's individual needs. Throughout the surgery, our highly trained veterinary technicians monitor your pet companion's heart and respiratory rates, and anesthetic depth. Once the surgery is completed your pet continues to be assessed by our dedicated staff to ensure a smooth and pain free recovery period.
Pre-anesthetic blood tests Once admitted into our hospital, all surgical patients receive a thorough examination. Because not all problems can be detected during this check up, we perform blood tests on most non-routine surgeries and strongly recommend pre-anesthetic blood work for all elective surgeries (spays/neuters). These tests give us a more complete picture of your pet's health and allow us to make up an anesthetic regimen that is specific for your pet.
Surgical Pain Management Pain management is a part of our pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative surgical protocol. Our goal is to keep your pet as comfortable as possible. We have a number of pain management protocols to choose from. With your pet's health and well being in mind, pain management is a top priority in every surgical procedure we perform.
Updates Once the surgical procedure is completed, the surgeon or one of our veterinary team members will phone you with an update of your pet's condition and the time we anticipate your companion may go home. For this reason we ask that you always leave a number where you can be reached at all times. In addition, if at any time you feel the need to call us, by all means please do so.
We appreciate you entrusting the care of your cherished pet to us. Your faith in us will never be misplaced.
