At Companion Pet Hospital, every pet requiring surgery and anesthesia undergoes a thorough physical exam and mandatory preanesthetic blood work to avoid the risk for complications during surgery and recovery. In some cases, we may also perform thoracic radiographs (X-rays) to evaluate your pet’s heart and lung health prior to a procedure. Several factors are taken into consideration when assessing a patient for surgery, including age, breed, medical history, and the expected recovery and quality of life afterward.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides our team with a sterile environment to perform a variety of procedures for Philadelphia pets including spays, neuters, dental cleanings, mass removals, gastropexies, cystotomies (bladder stone removal), laceration repairs and more.
Our veterinary care team will counsel you on how to prepare your pet for the procedure.
All pets undergoing surgery at Companion Pet Hospital are treated with the same careful precautions and meticulous attention, including the use of an IV line and constant monitoring of blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and oxygen
Proper pain management involves preanesthetic, intra-operative and often post-operative intervention, including oral medication to go home. A comprehensive pain management protocol not only avoids needless pain and discomfort but also ensures timely wound healing. Our staff will provide instructions for nursing your pet through its recovery, from activity restrictions to wound dressing changes. Your pet may also receive follow-up evaluations with our veterinary care team to confirm that their recovery is on track and without complications.
