surgery1Northlake Veterinary Hospital offers a state-of-the-art surgical suite equipped with innovative tools to care for your pet. Our experienced veterinarians always recommend running blood work on your furry friend prior to surgery. Blood work can indicate issues that may not be seen by a simple physical exam. It is important to know that anesthesia can safely be administered to your pet. During Northlake’s pre-operative procedure, giving pain medication is recommended in order to keep your pet as comfortable as possible during surgery. Remember, if it would hurt us as people, it will hurt pets as well. As the procedure begins and after it is completed, the veterinarian constantly monitors your pet’s vital signs including heart rate and blood oxygen levels. At the conclusion of the treatment, your pet will be kept warm and will continue to be monitored as he or she recovers from the anesthesia.

Northlake Veterinary Hospital is prepared to handle nearly all surgical needs and will refer you and your pet to a specialist should the need arise.

Our skilled veterinarians have successfully performed countless procedures on local pets and will bring that same level of care to your pet. Call Northlake Veterinary Hospital for your pet’s surgical needs.
