Surgical Services for Pets

We offer a wide variety of surgical procedures for both dogs and cats at our Brodheadsville facility, following stringent surgical protocols to ensure your pet's health and safety.

In the course of each surgery, one of our dedicated veterinary professionals will administer anesthesia and monitor your pet's vital signs using our electronic patient monitoring equipment. We will also provide pain management both during and after the procedure.

After your pet's operation, monitoring and pain management are our number one priorities to ensure your pet's speedy recovery. We will also provide pet owners with comprehensive instructions for their at-home care.

What to Expect from Surgery

We will always keep you as informed as possible about why we are recommending a given surgical procedure for your pet and will explain any post-operative care they will require once your companion can return home. We practice stringent surgical safety protocols at our clinic to help keep your pet secure, comfortable and healthy.

The Surgery Process

We know that the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery can be a frightening one. Rest assured, however, that we only recommend surgery when it is in the best interests of your four-legged companion. 

We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery, and that you are comfortable making the decision to move ahead.

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries at Brodheadsville Veterinary Clinic are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This is a room that is kept totally sterile in order to prevent cross-contamination and infection.

Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.

Sterile packs and equipment. We are careful to clean, sterilize and wrap each of our surgical instruments before every surgical procedure performed at our hospital.
