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.

      We have been coming here for years, but yesterday was our first visit with Dr. Crabtree. What could have been an extremely tough day for us and our family's 17 year old cat, the staff was kind, understanding and knowledgeable on explaining the different options we have. Thank you to all for the continuous care you provide to us.

      We didn’t start going here until my chihuahua was in her final stages and they diagnosed her with heart failure. They took such good care of my baby and were available immediately when it was her time to pass. We can’t express how wonderful pendleton veterinary clinic has been. We can’t wait to continue their services with our future doggie generations! �

      A couple of weeks ago while on vacation out of state our lovable but sassy girl got hit by a car. They quickly got her in and Dr. Crabtree called me to let me know she was ok. Then this past Monday I was in with out old man mastiff. He had a severe double ear infection. Dr. Fisher was wonderful with him and he’s on the mend. I’m glad we made a switch to this clinic.
