Surgical Services for Pets

Surgery sounds daunting for your cherished companion but with the right team it will go smoothly. Our staff follows strict surgical procedures that ensure the well-being and safety of your furry friend. The surgical suite we have at Cremona Veterinary Clinic is modern and every instrument is disinfected thoroughly for each procedure. Plus, our veterinarians and technicians have decades worth of combined experience, so you can be sure your pet will be in expert hands.

What surgeries does your clinic offer to pets?

Our team is trained to perform various types of surgery for your pet. We have a complete surgical room and area to hospitalize certain small animal cases overnight. Some surgeries we perform are:

1. Spaying and neutering
2. Orthopedic
3. Soft tissue
4. Large Animal

What happens before surgery?

Before surgery we perform tests to ensure your pet is healthy to undergo the procedure. We will test their blood for any abnormalities and run imaging tests to check for organ function. We need to know how well the heart and kidneys function as they metabolize anesthesia. We also spend some time explaining what the surgery entails and what owners can expect after the surgery. During the operation, we constantly monitor your pet’s oxygen levels, heart rate, and more.

How can I prepare my pet for surgery?

Based on your pet’s upcoming surgery, we may have different preparation guidelines. A general rule we have is for pets to fast before their surgery. We recommend not feeding your pet 6 to 8 hours before they come in for a procedure.

We would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to all our clients that have been so patient with us during the current pandemic situation. We are happy to announce that we are open again!

We are kindly asking that our clients still wear a mask when they are in the building to protect themselves and our staff. Our waiting room will be limited to one client at a time. All our staff will also still be wearing their masks and taking care to wipe down frequently touched surfaces and sanitize in between clients and patients as we have always done.

If you are uncomfortable entering the clinic, please do not hesitate to call and we are happy to serve you and your pet curbside. As always cats must be in carriers, and dogs must be on a leash for safety and liability reasons.

We know that these have been trying times for everyone, but rest assured your pet is still receiving the highest quality of care that you have always known from our veterinarians and staff members.

If there are any concerns or special circumstances, please feel free to discuss this with our staff and we can take it into consideration.
