Surgical Services

At Headon Forest Animal Hospital, we understand how difficult it can be to bring your pet in for surgery. Even the most routine procedures can be nerve wracking. We want you to feel confident that when you bring your animal companion to us for surgery, they will be in excellent hands. We offer a wide range of veterinary surgical services, from routine spay and neuters to more complex procedures. All surgical patients have had pre-surgical blood screening to evaluate organ function. Patients undergoing general anesthesia are always placed on intravenous fluids to ensure adequate blood pressure, hydration and accurate administration of drugs. Each surgery is performed by our highly skilled veterinarians using the most modern techniques and equipment. We use only the safest anesthetic protocols and products and our knowledgeable and compassionate staff is always on hand to carefully monitor each surgical patient – before, during and after surgery. Your pet’s safety and comfort are always our top priority. Our surgical suite is fully equipped with respiratory and oxygen saturation monitors; heart monitor; blood pressure monitor and a circulating air-warming blanket. Following any surgical procedure, we’ll work with you to explain post-surgical care, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and develop and implement an appropriate pain management plan for your pet. All our surgeries receive pain medication before, during and after the procedure. The goal is to help your pet recover as comfortably as possible and get them back on their feet quickly.
