Surgical Services for Dogs & Cats

At Smith Veterinary Hospital, we perform elective and non-elective surgical procedures to help treat health conditions that can impact your cat or dog's health and life, both now and in the future.

Before surgery is considered, we use thorough diagnostic imaging and testing to explore less invasive treatment options. When we recommend a surgery for your pet, it's because it will be the most effective method of treating your pet's medical condition.

We'll talk you through everything you need to know about your pet's upcoming procedure ahead of time. We want to be sure that you fully understand why we are recommending a particular surgery for your pet, and that you are comfortable making decisions about their health.

Our veterinary team knows that any surgery, no matter the reason or expected outcome, may cause you to worry. We are here every step of the way, working with your pet's best interests in mind and their safety at the forefront of everything we do.

Surgery, Thornhill Vet

Surgical Procedures Offered at Our Hospital

Our Thornhill veterinarians routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgical procedures for cats and dogs:

The Surgery Process

When you bring your companion in for surgery, our team will follow a series of steps to cover all aspects of care.

The first step is to perform a thorough evaluation of your cat or dog. This includes a physical examination of your pet as well as blood tests to determine if they face any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Once the initial examination is complete, a member of our veterinary team will administer anesthesia and pain medications and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment.

Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. You will also be provided with complete care instructions to ensure an optimal outcome for your furry friend.

Sterilization Protocols

We will provide a safe environment to help protect the health of your beloved loved one. We achieve this using strict sterilization protocols.

Surgical protocols at our hospital include dedicated surgical suites which are kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

Our staff wear sterile attire at all times when they are in the surgical suite, and we carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment before every surgery.

Our veterinary team treats all companion animals as if they were our own, dedicated to their lifelong health and comfort. Contact us today to schedule your pet's first appointment.
