Surgery

The veterinarians at St. Francis Hospital for Animals bring extensive knowledge and expertise in a wide variety of surgical procedures to pet owners in greater Charlotte and the surrounding areas of North Carolina. We perform a number of routine and complex surgeries ranging from spays and neuters to fracture repairs, biopsies, tumor removals, amputations, and orthopedic procedures among others. We also offer an array of surgical techniques including electrocautery, radiosurgery, and cryosurgery, allowing our doctors to choose the best method for each individual case.

Our doctors will conduct an evaluation to determine if surgery is the best option for your pet’s condition. If surgery is deemed necessary, you can rest assured that our experienced veterinarians and staff will take the utmost care of your pet and treat it as our own. Since every pet is unique, we complete an assessment prior to surgery so that we can screen for any abnormalities or conditions that may be problematic.

We understand that anesthesia is scary. It’s very common for people to be concerned, especially when their older pet needs a procedure. To ensure your pet’s safety, we will use the information from our evaluations and take into consideration your pet’s species, breed, age, and health to create an anesthetic protocol best suited to your pet.

Once the surgery is complete, your pet will be brought out of anesthesia and our staff will continue to monitor vital signs and pain levels. We will keep your pet on site where our veterinarians can supervise the recovery until your pet is well enough to go home with you. All surgeries are followed up with a post-surgical examination and rehabilitation if needed.

At St. Francis Hospital for Animals, we truly believe that the combination of our experience, advanced surgical care, patient monitoring of vital signs and pain levels throughout all stages of surgery and recovery, in addition to healing treatments such as regenerative therapy offer your pet the best chance for surgical success.

Whether your pet is of the age to be spayed or neutered or needs a different surgical procedure, the veterinarians and staff at St. Francis Hospital for Animals are here for you. Contact us today for more information.
