Jacksonville Pet Surgery and Preventative Blood Work Essential to Pet Wellness Care
Here at the Animal Hospital of Onslow County in Jacksonville, pet surgery and preventative blood work are sometimes necessary aspects of pet wellness care. When you bring a new puppy or kitten home, for example, spay and neuter surgeries are critical preventative procedures that not only reduce the number of animals in our local shelters, these are veterinary surgeries we strongly recommend to give your pet a longer, healthier life.
Pet Surgery Procedures at Animal Hospital of Onslow County
If or when your pet needs surgery, you can have the peace of mind of knowing that Dr. Altman and Dr. Corry and our entire team sees your pet’s safety, comfort and health as their first priority. Our animal hospital is equipped with state-of-the art diagnostics tools and surgical equipment, and we follow strict sterilization protocols to limit the chances of any infections.
Before each pet surgery, we always perform preventative blood work tests to ensure there are no hidden health problems that could complicate the anesthesia process. Before your pet’s surgery, we fully explain what needs to be done, any test results and the cost of each procedure. Some preventative pet wellness care surgeries like spay or neuter and dental procedures are included in our pet wellness plans.
When your pet is ready to go home, we will explain how the procedure went and show you how to care for your recovering pet at home. We will show you how to administer any medications, change dressings and how to help your pet rest so he or she can have a speedy recovery. We may also issue an Elizabethan collar to keep your pet from licking or biting the surgical area.
