Surgical Procedures for Cats & Dogs

Sometimes, veterinary surgery is the only way to treat complex medical conditions that cannot be resolved through medication or other non-invasive methods. However, our veterinarians also understand that hearing your pet needs surgery may make you nervous.

During each veterinary surgery, we administer anesthesia so that your companion feels comfortable.

We want you to feel fully informed and comfortable making the decision to go ahead with the procedure. That's why we'll take the time to make sure you understand all the risks, benefits, symptoms and possible side effects of the surgery.

We will treat your dog or cat like our own. We will give them the same amount of love and care as they would get at home, both in and out of the operating room.

Surgical Procedures

At Stoney Trail Veterinary Clinic, we perform medical and emergency surgeries on dogs and cats to treat diseases or to repair injuries caused by trauma.

We make the well-being and comfort of each pet a priority throughout the entire surgical process, ensuring they receive the highest quality care possible.

Our veterinarians may perform or refer out the following surgical services:

  • Spaying & Neutering

    Spaying and neutering are very common surgical procedures performed to sterilize pets, prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.

  • Soft Tissue Surgery

    Soft tissue surgery covers a range of ear, nose, and throat procedures, as well as mass removals and the treatment of flesh wounds. Almost all surgical procedures not covering the musculoskeletal system may be considered soft tissue surgery.

    Soft tissue surgery also includes procedures for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal and skin disorders.

  • Wound Repair

    Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burned, torn, or otherwise damaged. It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible in order to avoid infection and other complications.

  • Dental Surgery

    Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries to relieve pain and restore good oral health to dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.

The Surgery Process

We will conduct a thorough pre-surgical evaluation prior to any surgery. This includes a physical exam and blood tests to determine if your pet is at risk of anesthesia-related complications.

During surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia so your dog or cat is asleep and feels no pain during the procedure. They also track your cat or dog using electronic patient monitoring equipment.

Following surgery, our priorities are post-operative monitoring and providing medication for pain management. In addition, your veterinarian will provide detailed instructions for at-home care.

Sterilization Protocols

Our clinic's surgical protocols include dedicated surgical suites that are kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

When in the surgical suite, our staff wears sterile clothing at all times, and we meticulously clean, sterilize, and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment before each surgery.
