Safety Protocols We Follow for Every Pet Surgery

Making surgery the safest it can be for our patients means minimizing risk. We do this by:

  • Examining every pet and doing blood work to evaluate their health and check for underlying illness
  • Selecting the amount of anesthesia your pet will need based on their weight, age, and overall health
  • Closely monitoring your pet throughout their surgery with state-of-the-art equipment and a dedicated technician
  • Keeping your pet warm during surgery to prevent their body temperature from dropping
  • Giving your pet the necessary pain relief to ease their recovery

Treatment may involve eye drops, medication, or possibly surgery. For conditions such as glaucoma, there is no cure, and removal of the eye may be necessary to give your pet a better quality of life.

Cat and Dog Surgeries We Perform in Bolingbrook

Our veterinarians routinely perform various soft tissue surgeries within our two spacious, fully-equipped surgery suites. These include:

  • Spays and neuters
  • Abdominal surgeries
  • Growth and tumor removals
  • Wound/laceration repair
  • …and more

If we examine your pet and find that they will need a more advanced procedure, we can refer you to a qualified specialist.

Will My Pet be Uncomfortable after Surgery?

Some discomfort is to be expected once your pet has fully awakened from their surgery and is able to return home with you. However, we will provide oral medication to take home so your pet can recover more comfortably. Pain can hinder a pet’s recovery or possibly cause other issues, so we do everything we can to ensure pain is kept to a minimum.

Please call us at (630) 759-0093 if you think your pet is uncomfortable or have other concerns about their recovery.
