At Concord Animal Hospital, we are dedicated to providing the safest possible surgical care for your pet. Our surgical services include canine, feline and pocket pet spay and neuter, mass removals, laceration repair and gastro-intestinal and other abdominal surgery.
Scheduled surgeries are performed in a sterile surgical suite Monday through Thursday by one of our veterinarians and assisted by a trained surgical technician, who monitor your pet before, during and after your pet’s procedure. Your pet’s blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, oxygenation and core body temperature are monitored while under anesthesia and we try to minimize pain with medications and localized anesthesia.
Unless otherwise indicated, your pet will be discharged on the same day. One of our technicians or veterinarians will review post-surgical care with you, which will likely include medications to manage discomfort or pain.
In advance of your pet’s surgery, we will perform pre-anesthetic blood work. This is to ensure that any pet going under anesthesia has properly functioning kidneys and liver, since these are the organs that metabolize anesthesia. We also check blood for diabetes, hypoglycemia, anemia or infection to make sure your pet is healthy enough to undergo their surgical procedure.
The evening before your pet’s surgery, don’t feed them after 6 pm or give them any liquids after midnight unless otherwise indicated by your veterinarian.
When booking your pet's surgical procedure, please be aware that we require a $200 deposit at the time of booking. We also have a 72-hour cancellation policy for all surgical procedures.
