Your Pet's Surgery

Pet Surgery, Spay, Neuter, Mass Removal, Complete Surgical ServicesWhen your dog, cat or other pet needs surgery, it can be a trying and stressful time for you, too. Irving Pet Hospital strives to alleviate the stress for you and avoid discomfort for your animal companion. Your pet's safety during surgery and recovery is our highest priority. Whether your pet needs a spay or neuter procedure or requires removal of a mass, the veterinarians and staff at Irving Pet Hospital provide gentle care using advanced veterinary surgical techniques.

At Irving Pet Hospital, we use the most up-to-date pain management protocols, advanced monitoring equipment and the safest anesthesia available, all under the supervision of our veterinarians and highly trained technical staff. During your pet's surgery or dental procedure, a trained staff member stays by your pet's side to monitor anesthesia, blood pressure and temperature. Pain medications are administered before the operation as well as post-op to be sure your animal does not experience any discomfort.

Some of the surgical procedures we commonly perform include:

  • Dental cleaning and extractions for dogs and cats, and tooth floats for exotic pets (rodents and other small mammals)
  • Cystotomy, a procedure that corrects urinary problems by opening the bladder
  • Surgical removal of lumps or masses
  • Spaying and neutering

Irving Pet Hospital believes that your pet recovers from surgery more quickly when he or she is not in pain. Although your pet receives pain medication before and after surgery, we may also send home pain management medication with your pet when he or she is ready to leave the hospital. Your pet's attending veterinarian will talk to you about pain management before and after surgery.

We encourage you to ask questions about your pet's operation and invite you to call and check on your pet following surgery. Your peace of mind is important to us, so please tell us of your concerns. When you choose Irving Pet Hospital for your pet's surgery, he or she receives the best possible care.
