Our hospital is well equipped to provide a variety of surgical services. We prioritize our patients’ safety and comfort before, during and after their surgical procedures. Our team is constantly learning new ways to improve our surgical practices and care for patients following their procedures. We treat your pet as if they are our own and strive to make our hospital a comfortable place for them to have surgeries and spend the night afterwards. To learn more about the surgeries we perform and how your pet will be accommodated, contact us at 613-354-1020.
What surgeries do you perform?
Our veterinarians handle a wide range of operations. Some of them are routine – such as spays and neuters – while others are more advanced, like dental extractions. Below are a few of the surgeries we are able to perform in our facility:
- Spays or neuters
- Mass removals
- Dental surgeries
- Fracture repairs
- Bladder stone removals
- Foreign object removals
Our emergency care surgeries are offered to pets who’ve been hit by a vehicle, have lost a lot of blood or are unable to respond to your calls. If there are any surgeries we cannot perform, we will recommend you to a board certified veterinary surgeon who is able to treat your pet.
How can my pet prepare for surgery?
How your pet prepares depends on the surgery they’ll be doing. In most cases, your pet must fast 6 to 12 hours prior to the procedure. They must be well rested and hydrated. Before the surgery, they’ll be given a sedative to calm them and the fur covering their afflicted area will be shaved. After surgery, they will have the opportunity to rest and recover from the anesthesia.
How will my pet manage the pain?
After the surgery, we will prescribe your pet with pain medication. There will be instructions on how to administer it to them. We offer laser therapy to reduce inflammation, heal incisions and speed up their recovery time. At home, we suggest you give your pet a comfortable place to rest and discourage them from playing or running to avoid opening up their stitches and aggravating their surgical wounds.
