At times, surgical procedures are often necessary to keep your dog or cat healthy.  At Smith Veterinary Hospital, we provide the highest quality surgical care, recovery and pain management for your dog and cat. 

Surgical procedures performed by Smith Veterinary Hospital include:

"The American College of Theriogenologists and the Society for Theriogenology believe that companion animals not intended for breeding should be spayed or neutered: however, both organizations believe that the decision to spay or neuter a pet must be made on a case by case basis, and this decision should be made between the pet's owner and its veterinarian, taking into consideration the pet's age, breed, sex, health status, intended use, household environment and temperament. While there are health benefits to spaying and neutering these must be weighed against the health benefits of the sex steroids (hormones produced by testicles and ovaries)."

Our surgical procedures include:

Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring

At Smith Veterinary Hospital, we utilize the safest, multi-modal anesthesia techniques available and provide the same level of patient monitoring that you would receive if you were having surgery.  During surgery, we monitor all of your pet’s vital signs with state of the art equipment as well as manual techniques.

We recommend pre-surgical blood work so we can evaluate your pet’s kidney, liver, heart function and clotting ability prior to undergoing anesthesia. 

Pain Management

Your pet’s pain relief is our top priority.  At Smith Veterinary Hospital, we ensure your pet has minimal pain before, during and after their surgery.  We utilize multiple therapies to control pain so that your pet is as comfortable as possible until they are fully recovered.
