We offer a range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Cleveland clinic, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each veterinary surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Veterinary Surgery
We always keep you up to date on why we recommend a surgical procedure and any post-operative care your pet will require at home. At our clinic, we follow strict surgical protocols.
We perform medical and emergency surgeries at Mt. Yonah Animal Hospital to help treat disease and conditions in pets, as well as to repair injuries caused by trauma.
Elective and non-elective surgeries are routinely performed by our Cleveland veterinarians:
Soft Tissue Surgery
Soft tissue surgical procedures are available for pets with ear, nose, and throat problems.
Hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders can all be treated with these procedures.
Spaying & Neutering
We surgically sterilize a cat or dog when we spay or neuter them to prevent disease and give them a longer life expectancy.
Spaying female cats and dogs is a surgical procedure. Spaying is the surgical removal of a female's reproductive organs, also known as an ovariohysterectomy.
Neutering, also known as orchiectomy, is a procedure that removes a male pet's testicles and is often thought to be less painful than spaying. The term 'neutering' can also refer to the process of desexing or 'fixing' a person of any gender.
The Veterinary Surgery Process
We understand that bringing your pet in for surgery can be a scary prospect. Please rest assured that we only recommend surgery when it is in your pet's best interests.
We will make certain that you understand why surgery is recommended and that you are confident in deciding to proceed.
Our veterinarians will refer you to a veterinary surgeon in the Cleveland area if your pet requires advanced care, and will work closely with your vet surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. To determine if your pet is at risk of anesthesia-related complications, we will confirm the procedure's details, conduct a physical examination of the patient, and ensure that blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the veterinarian.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgical procedures are carried out in a dedicated surgical suite. To avoid infection and cross-contamination, this room is kept completely sterile.
Surgical attire. When in the surgical suite, our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times. Sterile gowns and single-use gloves will be worn by those involved in the procedure.
Sterile packs and equipment. Before each surgery, we thoroughly clean, sterilize, and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment.
