Surgical Services for Pets
We offer a range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Southborough clinic, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each surgery, a dedicated nurse administers anesthesia and continuously monitors 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.
Common surgeries include spays, neuters, and tumor removal. Special cases may necessitate referral to a specialist.
What to Expect from Surgery
We always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a surgical procedure along with any post-operative care your pet will need at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
The Surgery Process
We understand that the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery can be frightening. Please be assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your furry companion.
We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery and that you are comfortable deciding to move ahead.
If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a vet surgeon near Southborough and work closely with them to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
Surgical Protocols at Our Clinic
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been conducted and reviewed by the vet to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept entirely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff always wears disposable caps and masks in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment before every surgery.
