Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Pendleton Veterinary Clinic, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We will also develop a strategy for keeping your best friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions you have will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the experienced, compassionate team at Pendleton Veterinary Clinic in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

      You are the best Vets ever. We are always feeling very comfortable with all our pets. Today we lost April. She went over the rainbowbridge around 4 pm. 😢💕🌹 But we want to say thank you for all your help and having always an open door and heart for us and our fur babies. 💙

      We drive 40 minutes (each way) from Indy to take our Great Dane to see Dr. Crabtree! We could not be happier with the level of care and attention he offers at every visit. We really did our research when it came time to pick a vet for our puppy, and he stood out for his kindness and expertise. We’ve taken our dog to several specialists and found that Dr. Crabtree is highly regarded by every vet we’ve talked to in the Indianapolis area. He goes completely out of his way to check on Alice and make himself available if she is ill. The staff and techs at the clinic are top notch as well. They are very passionate and always willing to help over the phone.

      I love that they treated my concerns for a stray/feral cat with the same seriousness and sensitivity that they would an owned family member. We will definitely visit this clinic again with confidence.

      Cannot recommend you enough. If you have a pet, bring them here! It's a small town and may be out of the way for some people, but for us it's close by. I couldn't be more thankful. Wonderful, highly competent, and caring staff for all your furry friend's needs!

      As always, excellent care! Everyone is so friendly and seems to genuinely love my (very energetic) dog. From Teresa always friendly at the front desk, Chloe being a fantastic groomer, to Dr. Crabtree providing excellent care and everyone in between! I would highly recommend this clinic
