Does your pet’s upcoming surgery have you feeling anxious?
As pet owners ourselves, we understand how nerve wracking it can be to bring an animal companion in for surgery. That’s why we go out of our way to make the experience as comfortable and easy as possible. We offer both routine and advanced procedures, all of which are performed with great precision by our experienced doctors. Furthermore, keeping our patients safe and pain-free is our highest priority. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in caring, capable hands with our dedicated team.
A pre-surgical examination, including blood work, is required prior to any anesthetic procedure. This allows us to identify potential risks that may be unique to your pet. We can then plan for these concerns ahead of time, reducing the chances of complications. Limiting your pet’s pain is also important to us. Effective pain control medication will be administered just prior to surgery to maximize your companion’s comfort.
During surgery, your pet will be well cared for by our highly skilled technicians and assistants. During anesthetic procedures, your pet’s vital signs, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood oxygen levels, and respiratory rate, will be closely monitored. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern equipment, which allows us to stay on top of your loved one’s wellbeing at all times.
Surgical procedures commonly performed at North Hampton Animal Hospital include:
- Tumor Removal
- Biopsy of Skin and Tumors
- Exploratory Surgery
- Abdominal Procedures
- Ear Flushing and Surgical care
- Orthopedic Repairs
After surgery, your pet will be closely monitored by our caring veterinary team. Most surgical patients are able to return home the same day. When you arrive to retrieve your pet, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions, which may include postoperative pain control medication. The goal is to help your loved one recover as quickly and comfortably as possible.
Should your companion require additional medical care following surgery, we may refer you to the local 24 hour critical care center. North Hampton Animal Hospital maintains close relationships with surgical specialists in the area. If necessary, patients can be referred to these local board-certified specialists for advanced surgical care.
