At our Ambler animal hospital, our vets perform a number of surgical procedures, including c-sections.
Using stringent surgical protocols and surgical techniques, we offer a wide selection of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Ambler animal hospital.
We offer Laser Surgery for routine soft-tissue procedures such as spaying and neutering, as well as skin tumor removal. Laser surgery helps to decrease pain, reduce bleeding and blood loss and reduce the risk of infection.
Anesthesia is administered by a dedicated nurse during each surgery. The nurse also uses electronic patient monitoring equipment to continuously monitor your pet.
Following surgery, our priorities shift to pain management and post-operative monitoring. You will also receive detailed instructions for at-home care from your vet.
What to Expect from Veterinary SurgeryWe commit to always keeping you fully informed about surgical procedures and why we are recommending them. You can also rest assured that we practice stringent surgical protocols in our surgical suite. If your pet needs post-operative care at home, we will discuss it in detail.
Our vets at Spring House Animal Hospital routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, gastrointestinal and skin disorders.
During Caesarean sections, we remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed with the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need an ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit and cherry eye surgery.
- Mass Removal
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. They can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or 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.
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.
- 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.
- 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 Surgery Process
Our team understands that the anticipation of bringing your pet in for surgery can cause much anxiety. Please be assured that we only recommend surgery when it's in the best interests of your four-legged family member.
We commit to ensuring that you fully understand why surgery is being recommended and that you are comfortable making the choice to move ahead.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. Specific details of the procedure will be confirmed with you. The vet will perform a complete physical examination of your pet, and ensure blood tests have been completed and reviewed so we can determine whether your pet faces any risk of complications related to anesthesia.
Dedicated surgical suites. We perform surgeries in our dedicated surgical suite, which is kept completely sterile to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
Surgical attire. Whenever they are in the surgical suite, our staff wear disposable masks and caps. Anyone involved in the procedure itself also wears single-use gloves and sterile gowns.
Sterile packs and equipment. Our surgical instruments and equipment are carefully cleaned, sterilized, and wrapped before each surgery.
