Surgery

Chances are, at some point during his or her lifetime, your fur baby will face the need for surgery, whether it’s a routine spay or neuter or something more complex and medically necessary. At Bridgeway Animal Clinic, we understand just how stressful it can be to bring your four-legged family member in for surgery. That’s why we work so hard to ensure that each and every surgical procedure we perform is as calm, safe and comfortable an experience as possible. We want you to feel confident that your four-legged best friend will be in excellent hands with our experienced surgical team.

The highly skilled veterinarians at Bridgeway Animal Clinic are experienced in performing a broad range of animal surgical services, using the most up to date techniques and modern equipment available and always adhering to the highest standards of care to ensure the best possible outcome for each and every surgical patient we serve. Regardless of whether the procedure is one that has been performed tens of thousands of times, or is something that our doctors may not see quite as often, we’re well equipped and prepared to assist in every way possible.

Before your fur baby is even placed on the operating table, we take every precaution necessary to ensure a safe and comfortable experience. Surgical patients are given a thorough exam and carefully tested to verify that they are healthy enough to proceed. Once cleared for surgery, your fur baby will receive a customized pain management protocol that is tailored to his or her specific needs and will help them stay as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

At Bridgeway Animal Clinic, we use only the safest available anesthetic products, which are carefully administered under the watchful eye of our highly qualified veterinary technicians. During surgery, your fur baby will be closely monitored using state of the art equipment to measure their heart rate, blood pressure, and other important vital signs. We want to make sure that each patient undergoing surgery remains as safe and comfortable as possible while in our care.

Some of the surgical services offered to patients at Bridgeway Animal Clinic include:

  • Spays/Neuters
  • Soft Tissue Surgery
  • Orthopedic Procedures

Following surgery, your fur baby will be relocated to our tranquil recovery area where they will continue to be monitored as they come out of anesthesia. A member of our team will contact you to explain how the procedure went and to arrange a time for you to come pick up your fur baby. When you arrive, we’ll go over any post-surgical care instructions, including an appropriate pain management plan to help your fur baby recover as quickly and as comfortably as possible.

For those situations in which our doctors feel there is a need for a particularly complex procedure requiring the use of more advanced equipment or a higher level of training, we have close working relationships with several board-certified veterinary surgeons and specialists. We are more than happy to provide a referral, as we feel that this ensures that our patients always receive the highest level of care with the best possible outcome.

Whatever your companion’s surgical needs, you can trust the team at Bridgeway Animal Hospital!
