Surgery is often the most effective way to treat many serious injuries and disorders, and Jackson Hwy Veterinary Clinic is proud to perform surgeries in state-of-the-art facilities with cutting-edge equipment. Our hospital provides a full range of surgical services ranging from standard spaying and neutering to advanced procedures.
Our goal is to keep your pet safe and comfortable and make your pet’s surgery as pain-free as possible.
Our veterinarians ensure that the right technique and combinations of medications are used before, during, and after each and every procedure we perform.
Is surgery safe for my pet?
Pre-anesthetic blood testing is important in reducing the risk of anesthesia. We recommend blood testing before surgery to ensure that the liver and kidneys can handle the anesthetic.
Even apparently healthy animals can have serious organ system problems that can be detected with blood testing. If there is a problem, it is much better to find it before it causes anesthetic or surgical complications.
Will my pet be in pain?
Anything that causes pain in people can be expected to cause pain in animals. Pets may not show the same symptoms of pain as people do; they usually don’t whine or cry, but you can be sure they feel it. Pain medications used will depend on the surgery performed.
We offer pain management with every surgical procedure for both the comfort of the patient and to speed the recovery process. This may include a postoperative injection that will ensure the patient is comfortable upon waking and then gets a restful night’s sleep.
Our veterinary team will walk you through the entire process, giving you the tools to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s treatment options. We understand surgery is a stressful time for any owner, and we’re available every step of the way to answer questions and put your mind at ease.
