Chances are, at some point during your pet’s lifetime, you will inevitably hear these four nerve wracking words – whether it’s for a routine spay or neuter procedure, or something more serious and complex.
At Verdin Veterinary Service, we understand that having to bring your loved one in for surgery can be a frightening experience. You want to be sure that your pet is kept safe and comfortable, while also receiving the best possible care. Our experienced, compassionate team is here to place your mind at ease. Rest assured that when it comes to surgery, your furry friend will be in excellent hands with us!
All surgeries are performed in our state of the art surgical suite, using cutting edge equipment and modern techniques, and always adhering to the strictest standards of safety and care. We want your pet’s procedure to be an absolute success, and we want you both to have as positive and stress-free an experience as possible – from the moment you drop your companion off through the end of the recovery period.
Prior to any surgical procedure, we take serious measures to reduce and prevent risk at every turn. Your pet will be carefully screened to ensure that he or she is well enough to undergo surgery, and to help us identify any areas of concern that we should be prepared for ahead of time. A customized pain management plan will then be developed, which will be designed to keep your loved one as comfortable as possible while also maintaining his or her safety at all times.
The day of surgery we will welcome you and get your loved one settled in. We’re happy to answer any questions or discuss any concerns you may have about the surgery at this time. Our team will spend some one on one time with your pet, helping them to feel comfortable and relaxed, and getting them prepped for surgery. A safe and effective dose of pain control medication will be administered and your pet will drift peacefully off into sedation to the soothing voices of our compassionate care team. We’ll make sure that he or she will never feel alone!
Once surgery begins, the experienced doctor will work swiftly and with great precision to complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. Our support staff will remain on hand at all times to assist with surgery and to closely monitor your pet’s health and well-being throughout the entire procedure. Our surgical suite is outfitted with the most effective monitoring equipment available, allowing us to ensure the optimum comfort and safety of your loved one from start to finish.
Some of the surgical procedures routinely performed at Verdin Veterinary Service include:
- General Surgery
- Soft Tissue Surgery
- Orthopedic Procedures
- Ophthalmic Surgery
When surgery is complete, a member of our team will contact you via phone to let you know how everything went, discuss any noteworthy findings and arrange a pick up time. In most cases, surgical patients are able to go home the same day as their procedure. Once you arrive to pick up your pet, we’ll go over our post-operative care instructions, including an appropriate pain management plan that will help your loved one recover comfortably.
If you recently learned that your pet needs surgery, there’s no need to panic. Especially when you’ve got the experienced, compassionate team at Verdin Veterinary Service in your corner! We’ll have your four-legged family member all fixed up and on the road to recovery before you know it!
