At Lakeland Veterinary Hospital, we understand surgery may be a stressful time for you and your pet. We are here for you every step of the way and take extraordinary care to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort from beginning to end. Our surgical team is highly trained with extensive experience in a range of general and advanced surgical procedures.
When more advanced orthopedic/specialty procedures are needed, Lakeland has a team of board certified surgeons who travel to our hospital to perform surgery at Lakeland, under our care, so you don’t have to travel.
Prior to every surgery performed, the veterinarian will complete a pre-operative assessment to ensure your pet is healthy enough for surgery and can withstand anesthesia. The pre-operative assessment includes a blood test and physical examination. During this time, you will also be able to voice any questions or concerns you have about the procedure and learn more about post-operative care.
On the day of surgery, we ensure comprehensive pain management is always performed by continually monitoring your pet’s anesthetic and vital signs.
After surgery, we closely monitor your pet’s pain level so that they will comfortably wake up from their anesthesia-induced slumber as pain-free as possible.
