No pet parent ever wants to find out their cherished companion needs surgery, even if that surgery is something simple and routine. The truth is, bringing a loved one in for surgery is never easy, regardless of whether that family member happens to be of the two-legged or four-legged variety. You want to be sure that your pet will be well cared for, and remain as safe and comfortable as possible while not in your care.

At Alpine at Noah’s Ark Animal Hospital, we recognize that while we deal with pet surgery on a daily basis, it’s not something that you and your companion have to face very often. That’s why we go above and beyond to make sure that each surgery performed in our hospital is as calm, comfortable and stress-free an experience as possible, both for our patients and their loving owners.

Our team is experienced in performing a wide variety of pet surgeries, from routine spays and neuters to complex orthopedic procedures, using the most up to date equipment and techniques and always adhering to the highest standards of care. We use only the safest anesthetic products, and we take every precaution necessary to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients at all times while in our care. Rest assured that when it comes to surgical care, your pet will be in excellent hands with us!

Before we ever even book your pet in for surgery, we’ll first examine them to verify whether they are healthy enough to proceed. This is especially important for older pets, or those that suffer from an existing medical condition. We also strongly recommend pre surgical screening, which allows us to identify and account for any increased risk that your pet may face, before, during or after surgery. The more prepared we are ahead of time, the smoother your pet’s procedure will go.

When we’ve received the green light to proceed, we’ll get to work developing a customized pain management plan that is tailored specifically to your pet, based on his or her current health and risk factors. Our goal is to keep your companion as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure while also minimizing risk as much as we can. Pain control will be carefully administered by our experienced veterinary technicians and monitored accordingly.

Once your pet has been safely sedated, the doctor will begin the surgery, working diligently and efficiently to achieve the best possible outcome. Our experienced support staff will be on hand at all times throughout the procedure to assist the vet with surgery and to closely monitor your pet’s well being. We use the most modern monitoring equipment available to keep a close watch on your pet’s vital signs, including his or her heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen levels.

When the procedure has been completed, your pet will be carefully moved from the OR to our recovery area, where we will continue to keep an eye on them as the anesthesia begins to wear off. Someone from our team will contact you via telephone to explain how the procedure went, discuss any important findings and arrange for you to come retrieve your pet. When you arrive, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions, which may also include an appropriate pain management plan to help your pet remain as comfortable as possible during his or her recovery at home.

Once you’ve returned home with your pet, should any questions or concerns arise about the surgery or our aftercare instructions, we encourage you to pick up the phone and reach out to us. No question or concern is too small when it comes to your pet’s health and happiness. Remember – help is just a phone call away!

If you recently found out your pet requires surgery, there’s no need to worry. The team at Alpine at Noah’s Ark Animal Hospital is fully prepared to handle all of your veterinary surgical care needs. We’ll have your four-legged friend fixed up and on the road to a full and speedy recovery in no time!
