Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Cross Creek Animal Hospital, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your best friend will be in excellent hands with us.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We will also develop a strategy for keeping your pet comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions you have will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

 

Orthopedic Surgery

Many pet owners are familiar with common and routine surgeries, such as spay/neuter procedures. In many cases, however, our animal companions face situations which require more advanced surgical attention. At Cross Creek Animal Hospital, we offer in-house surgical care for complex operations, including orthopedic procedures.

We are pleased to partner with the team at Tarheel Veterinary Surgical Specialists to ensure that our patients always receive exceptional care. Their mobile services are delivered right in our clinic, making it convenient for our clients and a more positive experience for our patients.

Corrective orthopedic surgical services are available to address a wide variety of conditions and injuries affecting the bones, ligaments, and joints. Whether it’s an acute injury, such as a fracture, or a chronic condition, such as hip dysplasia, we’ve got you covered.

 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the compassionate team at Cross Creek Animal Hospital in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.
