Surgery

During the course of your pet’s lifetime, the need for some type of surgery will likely arise, whether it’s a routine spay or neuter or something more complex and medically necessary to keep your companion healthy. The caring, compassionate staff at Ridge Lake Animal Hospital understands that bringing your pet in for surgery can be a difficult and stressful experience for you both. We want you to know that we take every measure possible to ensure the safety and comfort of our surgical patients. Your pet will be in excellent hands with our surgical team!

Ridge Lake Animal Hospital offers a wide range of veterinary surgical services. We utilize conventional methods to perform our surgeries, as well as advanced CO2 laser and cryosurgery technologies. We take every precaution to ensure that our surgical patients remain as safe and comfortable as possible throughout their entire stay with us – from the moment they arrive to the time you come to bring your pet home. All patients receiving anesthesia and undergoing surgery, regardless of whether it’s routine or complex, receive the following support to ensure each procedure is as safe as possible:

  • Preoperative blood work
  • Intravenous catheter and IV fluids
  • Customized pain management plan
  • Heat support
  • Ongoing monitoring of blood pressure and vitals by our well trained technicians and assistants, using state of the art equipment

Our highly skilled veterinarians are experienced in performing a broad range of surgical services, all while adhering to the strictest standards of safety and care as set forth by the American Animal Hospital Association. We utilize the most modern equipment and cutting edge technology to provide our patients with the best available surgical care. Our pain management protocols are tailored specifically to each patient, and we use only the safest available anesthetic products.

Prior to any surgery, the doctor will thoroughly explain every aspect of the procedure and recovery so that you’ll know what to expect and will feel comfortable while your animal family member is in our care. Once surgery is complete, we’ll reach out to let you know how everything went and discuss a time for you to come retrieve your pet. Upon arrival, we’ll go over any aftercare instructions, including an appropriate pain management plan to help your pet recover comfortably. The goal is to have your companion back on his or her feet again as soon as possible.
