Pet Surgical Services
Buckley Veterinary Hospital is a fully-equipped surgical suite with trained veterinarians who perform a wide range of general surgical procedures. We carefully examine each pet prior to surgery and recommend every patient have a pre-anesthetic blood test to evaluate their internal organ function. After examination, anesthetic drugs are individually selected for your pet based on the procedure, their age, breed, and health condition.
Surgeries performed at Buckley Veterinary Hospital include:
- Oral surgery
- Many orthopedic surgeries, including fracture repair, hip (FHO) repair, cruciate (ACL) repair and more
- Abdominal surgery
- Urinary tract surgery
- Cesarean section
- Growth removal
- Laceration repair
- Emergency surgery (e.g. foreign object retrieval, wound repair, others as needed
- and more….
Before surgery, your pet will be screened and anesthetics will be hand-selected depending on your pet’s breed, age, health, and other factors. Blood tests may also be done to confirm your pet’s liver, heart, and kidneys are functioning properly and your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia.
During surgery, we have a medically trained staff member solely responsible for monitoring your pet’s vital signs. Their main priority is supervising your pet’s heart rate and rhythm, respiratory functions, body temperature, and maintaining proper oxygen levels for your pet.
We believe it’s important to keep a line of communication open with you every step of the way. Our staff will ensure we have up-to-date contact information to keep you fully informed about your pet’s surgery, progress, and recovery. Oftentimes, pain medication is sent to keep your pet as comfortable as possible. Our staff will provide post-operative care instructions, and we will explain everything you need to know to care for your pet at home.
Please speak with one of our staff members if you have any specific questions regarding your pet’s surgery or post-operative care.
