Cat & Dog Surgery
Our Grayson clinic offers a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each vet surgery, a dedicated member of our veterinary team will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided.
Following vet surgery, post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Cat & Dog Surgery
We always keep you fully informed about recommended vet surgical procedures and about any post-operative care your pet will need at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
Veterinary Surgical Procedures
At All Creatures Veterinary Care, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our Grayson vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders.
These procedures are also available for a variety of issues including oncological, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
- Mass Removal
Masses can grow on the skin of cats or dogs, or, in potentially serious cases, inside a body cavity.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Despite our best efforts as animal caretakers, sometimes our pets can ingest foreign objects, or foreign objects can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Grayson and work closely with them to ensure that your pet receives the very best care.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet. If your pet is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care, your vet will refer your dog or cat to a vet surgeon near Grayson.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
The Surgical Process
We understand being anxious about bringing your pet in for surgery, and we assure you 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 making the decision to move ahead.
If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Grayson, and 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. We will confirm the details of the procedure, perform a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any potential of suffering from anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
