Pet Surgery at Hamilton Road Animal Hospital in Columbus, OH

Surgery is not a decision to be taken lightly when it comes to your pet’s medical health. Surgery may be the only way to solve some of your pet’s health issues, so what you need is a trusted veterinarian. At Hamilton Road Animal Hospital in Columbus, OH, we are well versed in conducting pet surgical procedures. You can have the confidence that your pet is in good hands with us if it needs surgery. 

Pet Surgery

Common Elective Pet Surgeries

Elective surgeries are those that improve your pet’s quality of life or appearance. Some common elective pet surgeries include:

    • spay and neuter procedures
    • teeth cleaning and dental extractions
    • benign skin growth removal

These are low risk procedures performed on healthy pets. Serious pet injuries and conditions may require emergency surgery, such as tumor removal, laceration repair, and more.

Pre-Surgical Protocols

Our veterinarians will conduct a pre-surgical evaluation of your pet to ensure it is in good enough health for surgery. This evaluation will include a physical exam, pre-surgery blood tests, and any additional tests required for your pet’s procedure. Blood work will reveal the health and function of your pet’s organs to see if there are any hidden issues that would interfere with the anesthesia for surgery. The surgery may be postponed until a clear diagnosis is made if the physical exam, blood work, or other tests reveal abnormalities. Our veterinarians reduce the risk of complications during your pet's procedure by taking these precautions.

Surgery can be performed as scheduled if no abnormalities are found. We will provide you with full instructions on how to prepare your pet the day before its procedure. Your pet will be given pre-surgery medication and anesthesia on the day of its surgery. We will monitor its vital signs carefully throughout the surgery to ensure no complications arise.

Post-Op Care

We will provide instructions after your pet’s procedure for its post-up care at home. We will also provide pain medication and antibiotics, if necessary, to keep it comfortable and infection-free during its recovery. Our team is just a phone call away if you have any questions concerning your pet’s care after surgery.
