Like their human friends, most pets will need to have some type of pet surgery in their lifetimes, whether it’s a routine procedure like spay or neuter or a more complicated operation to treat a serious injury, illness, or defect. It’s important that you have a family vet nearby who is fully equipped and prepared to perform pet surgery when it’s necessary. York Veterinary Services maintains a state-of-the-art surgical facility at our clinic, supported by a fully-equipped diagnostic laboratory. When your pet needs surgical services in York, SC, you can rest assured that they’ll receive the best at our animal hospital.
The doctors at York Veterinary Services have many years of experience performing a variety of surgical procedures, from routine spay and neuter procedures to more complicated soft-tissue surgeries and ophthalmic surgeries. The doctors and staff are constantly training in order to bring you the highest standard of surgical care.
Before surgery, all patients undergo a thorough physical exam and complete appropriate laboratory analysis so that we can design an anesthesia protocol specifically for YOUR pet. During every surgical procedure, your pet has a dedicated anesthetic technician closely and continuously monitoring all of your pet’s vital signs with advanced anesthetic monitoring equipment.
Your pet’s safety and comfort during surgery are our primary concerns, and we strive to make each surgical procedure as stress-free and safe as possible.
What To Expect During Pet Surgery
When your pet has been diagnosed with a condition or injury that requires surgery, your vet will conduct a complete physical examination and a thorough analysis of blood and urine samples will be performed by our diagnostic lab. This is done to discover any underlying conditions that might cause complications during surgery and also devise an anesthesia protocol specifically for your pet.
During pet surgery, your pet will receive anesthesia and a catheter will be inserted. They’ll also be fitted with an IV to provide the fluids necessary to maintain stable blood pressure. During the procedure, an anesthetic technician will continuously monitor your pet’s vital signs using sophisticated surgical monitoring equipment.
After surgery, your pet will rest in one of our recovery rooms for a few hours of close observation and then they’ll be able to go home with you. Usually, pets are able to go home the same day, but in some cases, your vet may decide to keep them overnight for further observation. Plan for your pet to spend a whole day at the clinic.
You’ll be advised on aftercare for your pet at home, and whether you’ll need to schedule any follow-up appointments. In general, your pet should stay indoors and avoid exertion for a week or so and you’ll need to take precautions to keep them from licking and biting at their sutures.
