When your pet is in need of surgical care, you can turn to our Montrose animal hospital. Montrose Veterinary Clinic offers spay, neuter, and other veterinary surgical services that can save or improve the quality of your pet’s life. Our veterinarians offer safe and dependable surgery and anesthesia services to keep your pet healthy.
The veterinary professionals at our Montrose animal hospital perform several different types of surgery for pets, especially soft tissue surgical procedures. These soft tissue procedures include spaying and neutering, dental surgery, declawing and removal of foreign bodies. Soft tissue surgery may involve removal of a tumor or bladder stone, gastropexy to correct torsion bloat in which the stomach flips over and expands, and other procedure.
Spay and neuter procedures prevent pet pregnancies, thereby improving the health and well-being of your pet while reducing the number of unwanted pets in Montrose. Getting your pet spayed or neutered is one of the best things you can do for your pet, as it reduces the possibility of life-threatening complications associated with pregnancy, deters unpleasant behavior like roaming and aggression, and decreases the number of stray suitors appearing at your door.
Pets undergoing surgery require exceptional treatment before, during, and after the procedure. You can rest assured that the veterinarians at Montrose Veterinary Clinic will take the very best care possible of your animal companion. We use advanced veterinary technology to decrease blood loss, reduce pain, shorten recovery time, and optimize results.
We know that having your pets undergo surgery can be stressful, so we take steps to ensure that you can enjoy peace of mind. We use a surgical laser to perform most of our soft tissue surgeries, which helps significantly reduce the amount of blood loss during surgery. Our laser procedures result in less pain after surgery, as well as lead to a shorter recovery time, so your pets can resume their normal activities sooner.
Your animal companion’s safety and well-being is our top priority, so we work hard to reduce the risk of complications. Before performing any surgery, we perform blood tests that check for signs of infection, anemia, or other problem that may affect the outcome of the surgery. Blood tests help our veterinarian evaluate the function of your pet’s kidneys, liver, pancreas. These tests also measure blood glucose levels and other markers of your pet’s overall health. To reduce the risk of complications in some cases, or to improve the outcome of the procedure, we may recommend having the surgery done later.
If your pet ever needs a scheduled surgery or an emergency procedure, you can count on our veterinarian in Montrose. For an appointment or for more information, please call (713) 524-3814.
