Pet Surgery

Pet surgery includes routine procedures and more complex operations. There are several reasons your pet might require surgery. The most common types of surgical procedures we perform include spaying, neutering, mass removal, soft tissue injury removal, and tail amputations.

When choosing a veterinarian to perform pet surgery, you should put in a bit of effort to make sure you have chosen the right veterinarian. At Marietta Animal Hospital, our veterinarians specialize in pet surgery. This means they have the knowledge and expertise to offer top-notch surgical care.

We also carry the latest surgical instruments and equipment. Our staff keeps their skills relevant to the latest advancements in veterinary health technology. Just as important as our technical expertise is our loving and caring attitude towards pets. When your pet is undergoing surgery at our facility, you can rest easy with the knowledge that your pet is in capable hands. We take great care in keeping our facility clean and hygienic.

One of the first steps in surgery is confirming the diagnosis of the health concern your pet is undergoing surgery to address. We will perform a comprehensive examination of your pet that may include blood work, x-rays, ultrasound exam, and more. We will then discuss the surgical procedure and what to expect. After we have answered any questions you might have, we will proceed to schedule the surgery.

When your pet needs surgery, you need to find a practice that can administer both gentle and effective treatment to your beloved companion. From routine procedures, such as spaying or neutering, to more advanced operations, your pet may need to undergo surgery for any number of reasons. Our staff at Marietta Animal Hospital is trained to give your pet the care and compassion they need to not only successfully make it through the operation but to lead a healthier and happier life when they return from our facilities.

The modern amenities and pristine conditions of our surgical rooms enable our staff to function at peak capacity. We do everything in our power to streamline your experience so that all lab work and pre-surgical exams are completed in a timely manner. Our resources not only help our staff feel supported, they can also help your pet feel more comfortable in an unfamiliar place. We recommend a follow-up with each of our clients so we can catch small problems before they turn into larger ones.

You can expect our staff's complete attention when your pet is in the surgical room. Veterinary surgery often requires multiple professionals working together, which is why we make sure your pet's temperature, IV fluids, and anesthesia are constantly monitored and adjusted by a trained technician. Our team works together to communicate any potential anomalies that may compromise the efficacy of the surgery. We've found this strategy to be the best possible way to ensure favorable outcomes.
