Veterinary Pet Surgery

There’s a long list of reasons why your pet may require surgery, but what matters most is that you feel that your best friend is in the best possible hands when a need for surgery arises. We’re deeply experienced in handling everything from the most routine to the most advanced surgical procedures here at Archer Veterinary Clinic.

General & Advanced Surgery

The thought of surgery is stressful for many pet parents. At Archer Veterinary Clinic, we understand the love and concern you have for your forever friend. Our medical team is highly experienced in pain management and the safest surgical practices before, during, and after your pet’s procedure.

Your veterinarian will communicate with you every step of the way, explaining how a surgical procedure will benefit your pet, and what pre-operative and post-operative care will consist of.

Rest assured, your pet is safe at Archer Veterinary Clinic!

Spay/Neuter Procedure

Spay/Neuter Procedure is highly recommended for all of our patients. This routine, simple, and safe procedure benefits your pet and your family by eliminating unwanted behaviors associated with mating and pregnancy. Your pet will also be a more loving companion and healthier overall!

Oral Surgery

Oral Surgery is necessary if your pet has severe gingivitis and dental disease. These conditions are not only painful, but very dangerous when oral bacteria enters the bloodstream. To learn more about the dental services offered at Archer Veterinary Clinic, please click here.

Soft-Tissue Surgery

Soft-Tissue Surgery addresses conditions such as mass removal, urinary tract surgery, wound reconstruction, and spay/neuter procedure.

Oncologic Surgery

Oncologic Surgery prevents the spread and malignancy of tumors, especially cancerous tumors.

Orthopedic Surgery

Orthopedic Surgery is an option for pets with painful conditions affecting the bones and joints. Our clinical team is experienced in ACL procedure, fracture repair, and tail docking.

ACL Procedure

ACL Procedure is performed to treat ruptured cruciate ligament repair, which is one of the most common knee injuries in canines. Surgery typically provides the best long-term outcome for pets as opposed to injury management.

Mass Removal

Mass Removal is strongly encouraged if your pet has a hernia, cyst, or tumor. If you find a mass on your pet, schedule a visit so we can determine if the area is cancerous or benign. To prevent further growth and spreading, we typically recommend removing benign masses for your pet’s complete safety.

Foreign Body Removal

Foreign Body Removal is not uncommon. Pets tend to eat things they shouldn’t, which can be very dangerous if the object doesn’t safely pass through the GI tract. If your pet has eaten a foreign object, please do not hesitate to call us.

Cystotomy

A cystotomy is a procedure that allows your veterinarian to look inside your pet’s bladder through a small incision in the bladder wall. Cystotomy might be used to collect a biopsy, conduct an exploratory, or remove a bladder stone, bladder tumor, or blood clot.

This procedure requires general anesthesia. To ensure your pet’s safety, our medical team always performs pre-surgical bloodwork to determine the best anesthetic protocol for your pet.

The risks involved in cystotomy are very low, and your pet will be back home just 2 to 3 days after surgery. Your veterinarian will prescribe appropriate post-operative medication and care to minimize pain during recovery.

Pain Management

Pets cannot communicate pain the same way humans do. We never want our furry friends to suffer, so it’s important to pay attention to symptoms of discomfort.

At Archer Veterinary Clinic, we do all we can to minimize and eliminate pain in our patients. If you suspect your pet is in pain, we will first perform a comprehensive physical exam. Further testing may be needed. If so, we are fully equipped with digital radiography, ultrasound technology, and an in-house lab so we can make a diagnosis sooner and begin managing pain right away.

During surgical procedures, pain is rigorously monitored and managed by our trained clinical team.
