We care for your four-legged family with the skill and empathy they deserve, because we would want exactly the same for our own pets. Independence Veterinary Hospital has a dedicated surgical suite where we can perform spays and neuters, mass removals, bladder procedures, and more using the highest-grade medical and monitoring equipment. Our licensed veterinary technicians and assistants support our veterinarians during every surgery, keeping a close eye on your pet and making sure they’re as comfortable as they are safe.
What to Expect with Your Pet’s Surgery
There are several things we want you to be assured of when your pet is seeing us for surgery.
Safety is Our Highest Priority
We uphold an elevated safety standard with every pet surgery we perform. That means every pet is given careful attention and receives treatment tailored to their health history, current condition, breed, weight, and other factors. Anesthesia, IV fluids, and pain management are all customized to their needs.
Comfort is Equally Important
While your dog or cat is undergoing surgery, we provide them with heat support to keep their body temperature within a healthy range. Additionally, we customize your pet’s pain control so that when they wake up, they’ll feel minimal discomfort and stress.
We’ll Answer All Your Questions
During and after your pet’s surgery, our team will keep you informed about your pet’s condition and let you know when they’re ready to go home with you. When you come to pick up your pet, we’ll answer any questions you have, provide care instructions for you to follow at home, and, if needed, give you oral pain medication for your pet to take at home to ease their recovery. We also encourage you to call us if you have further questions or concerns about your pet.
