Pet Surgery for Small Animals

Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic offers an array of soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries, all performed with the highest concern for your pet’s safety and comfort. As an AAHA-accredited small animal hospital, we follow guidelines to reduce health and safety risks during surgery. Furthermore, every one of our patients receives care tailored to their own needs, along with full pain control and constant monitoring.

Surgical Protocols We Follow

Every pet surgery our veterinarians perform involves:

  • A complete health assessment including an exam and blood work to check organ function
  • Placing an IV line before surgery to give fluids and other medications as needed during surgery
  • Continuous vital monitoring including pulse, blood pressure, respiration, and oxygen
  • A fully-dedicated sterile surgical suite to prevent infection and cross-contamination risks
  • Sterile surgical attire for all veterinarians, technicians, and assistants in the surgical suite
  • Carefully-organized sterile surgical packs containing clean, sterilized instruments

Reducing Pain and Healing Time with Laser Surgery

In addition to our safety protocols, we can also reduce your pet’s pain, swelling, and post-op recovery time using our surgical laser, which:

  • Seals nerve endings, blood vessels, and lymphatics
  • Allows for greater precision
  • Reduces tissue damage and bruising
  • Reduces blood loss

“We have been taking our dogs here for 3 years now and have always had a great experience. We really like Dr. Tucker as she is down to earth and great at explaining things to us so that it makes sense and so that we can make the decisions necessary for our dogs.”
