Although we prefer to handle most cases through non-surgical methods, there are a few situations where surgery is the absolute best choice for your pet. And when it comes to performing surgery with careful compassion, there’s no place better than Turkey Creek Animal Hospital. We offer a full range of veterinary surgical services, ranging from standard spaying and neutering to more advanced procedures, including:
- Soft tissue
- Biopsies/mass removal
- Foreign body removal
- Wound Repair
- Reproductive (c-sections and pyometra)
Every surgery we perform at Turkey Creek Animal Hospital is done with the highest priority on the safety and comfort of the pet. Our doctors work to deliver comprehensive solutions with as little discomfort to your pet as possible. Then, our devoted support staff makes sure patients that need extended monitoring are well cared for as they recover.
As with any surgery, there is always a level of risk that comes with anesthesia of any kind. At Turkey Creek Animal Hospital, we try to limit these risks by fully evaluating pets to learn of any potential allergies, pre-existing conditions, or other factors that may impact the ability to tolerate certain anesthesia. We will take the time to review all of these possibilities with you so that you’re an informed and involved member of your pet’s health care team.
You can also rest assured that pain management is an important part of the surgical process before, during, and as your pet recovers. Often, we advocate a mix of alternative therapies such as laser therapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, and lifestyle and/or diet changes with additional at-home support from traditional drug therapy. We can even simplify drug therapy with the convenience of our online pharmacy which offers automatic refill and reminder service and home delivery.
