Veterinary Surgery

At our Monroe clinic, we offer a comprehensive range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs that adhere to stringent surgical protocols.

A dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and monitor your pet continuously during each surgery using electronic patient monitoring equipment.

Following surgery, our primary focus is on post-operative monitoring and pain management. Additionally, your veterinarian will provide detailed instructions for at-home care.

What to Expect from Surgery

We always keep you up to date on why we recommend a surgical procedure and any post-operative care your pet will require at home. At our clinic, we follow strict surgical protocols.

Surgical Procedures

We perform medical surgeries at Monroe Veterinary Clinic to help treat disease and conditions in pets, as well as to repair injuries caused by trauma.

Our Monroe veterinarians perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries on a regular basis:

  • Soft Tissue Surgery

    We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for pets with ear, nose, and throat disorders.

    Additionally, these procedures can be used to treat hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin conditions.

  • Spaying & Neutering

    We surgically sterilize a cat or dog when we spay or neuter them to prevent disease and give them a longer life expectancy.

  • Declawing

    Declawing procedures can be done in cases where the claw is damaged beyond repair or has a tumor. Immunocompromised cat owners may also choose to have their cats declawed if they have an increased risk of becoming ill from a cat scratch.  

  • Ocular

    If your pet is experiencing pain, redness, or other symptoms in or around their eyes, ocular surgery may be required.

    Eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, orbit exenteration, and cherry eye surgery are all common ocular procedures for cats and dogs.

    If your cat or dog requires surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Monroe and will work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.

  • Mass Removal

    Cats and dogs can develop skin masses. Additionally, masses can grow inside a body cavity and pose a serious or life-threatening threat.

    For both cats and dogs, mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure.

  • Wounds

    Living tissue is cut, broken, burned, torn, or otherwise damaged, resulting in wounds.

    It's critical that these wounds are cleaned, disinfected, and treated as soon as possible by a qualified veterinarian.

  • Orthopedic Surgery

    Orthopedic surgery treats injuries and diseases of your pet's bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures. If your dog or cat has a condition or injury that necessitates advanced specialized care, your vet will refer your pet to a veterinarian near Monroe.

  • Dental Surgery

    Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.

The Surgery Process

We understand how frightening it can be to bring your pet in for surgery. Please rest assured that we will only recommend surgery if it is in your furry companion's best interest.

We will ensure that you understand fully why we are recommending surgery and that you feel comfortable proceeding.

If your pet requires advanced care, our veterinarians will refer you to a veterinarian in the Monroe area and will work closely with your veterinarian to ensure your pet receives the best care possible.

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Pre-surgical assessments. To determine if your pet is at risk of anesthesia-related complications, we will confirm the procedure's details, conduct a physical examination of the patient, and ensure that blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the veterinarian.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are carried out in a separate surgical suite. To prevent infection and cross-contamination, this room is kept completely sterile.

Surgical attire. Our staff always wears disposable caps and masks while in the surgical suite. Additionally, those performing the procedure will wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.

Sterile packs and equipment. Prior to each surgery, we thoroughly clean, sterilize, and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment.
