Surgery

When it comes to your pet's surgery, you want to feel confident that every aspect of the procedure will be safe, careful, and closely monitored. At Fourmile Veterinary Clinic, we make safety our #1 priority. Our facility is equipped with separate "sterile procedure only" surgery suites with heated tables for maximum cleanliness and comfort. We utilize electronic anesthesia monitoring to closely track heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygenation throughout the entirety of any procedure involving anesthesia.

Our doctors are highly experienced in spay/neuter and a variety of soft tissue and orthopedic surgical procedures, for both small and large animals. If you have a question about whether we offer a particular procedure, just give us a call.

  • Anesthesia & Monitoring: As pet owners ourselves, we understand that the thought of your pet undergoing anesthesia is stressful. Fortunately, developments in medicine have made modern anesthesia extremely safe, but we recognize that anesthesia carries some risk. That's why we do everything we can to maximize your pet's safety under anesthesia. Prior to surgery, we consider your pet's individual health to determine if the anesthesia is safe for them, and during surgery, we continuously monitor your pet's heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygenation.

  • Large Animal Surgery: Our facility is fully equipped for large animal surgery, with a padded surgery and recovery room for equine and small ruminants and an indoor head catch for bovine procedures. Just as with our small animal patients, we take every precaution to ensure the safety of the horses and livestock we treat. Your animal's vitals will be closely monitored throughout surgery and we will design an appropriate pain management plan to ensure your animal's comfort following surgery.

If your pet requires surgery, please call the hospital and we will help you arrange a consultation with one of our doctors.
