If your pet needs surgery, place them in trusted and capable hands. As pet owners ourselves, we have also experienced the anxiety of preparing our pets (and ourselves) for their procedure. While cat and dog surgeries come with risks just as human surgeries do, we make extra certain that no stone is left unturned where your pet's safety is concerned. Our hospital in Naples uses the most up-to-date anesthesia and monitoring equipment for every surgery, and every patient is closely attended to by an experienced veterinary nurse. We're proud to offer skilled veterinarians who can perform a variety of soft tissue surgeries to help pets enjoy an enhanced quality of life. Call our doctors at (239) 513-1777 to learn more!
Our veterinarians are qualified to perform many different soft tissue surgeries in order to meet our patients' diverse needs. Some of these surgeries include:
Spay and neuter
Mass removals (these are generally benign, but occasionally we recommend sending masses out for testing just in case)
Ear surgery to improve airflow into the ear canal
Various eye surgeries
Anesthesia: To safely place your pet under general anesthesia, we first need to conduct a physical exam and possibly take a blood sample to make sure your pet is healthy. Medicating with painkillers is also an integral pre-surgical step to prevent any unnecessary discomfort after the procedure.
Monitoring: Maintaining healthy organ function and body temperature is essential to your pet's safety during surgery. In addition, we monitor your pet's vitals including:
Blood oxygen concentration
Since the patient's body naturally begins to cool while they're under anesthesia, we use various warming methods (warm blankets, hot water bottles) to keep their temperature at a healthy level.
To prevent problems after your pet has had their surgery, it's important to keep watch over them and make sure their pet surgery site is healing properly. This means minimizing your pet's activity and keeping them as relaxed as possible for the duration your veterinarian recommends.
The recovery process can be challenging, especially for active young dogs and cats that may not readily comply with a restricted lifestyle. Stay in contact with us so we can offer advice and help guide you through this period. Just call (239) 513-1777 if you have any questions or need to schedule a follow-up appointment!
