Surgery

At Charm City Veterinary Hospital, we understand that leaving your pet at the hospital for surgery can be very stressful. It is very important to us that you know that we do everything possible to ensure your pet’s safety while under anesthesia for a surgical procedure.

All surgical patients receive a pre-surgery blood workup and a thorough exam in order to ensure safe administration of an anesthesia protocol specific to your pet’s needs. Prior to every surgical procedure, an IV catheter will be placed in your pet’s leg to allow immediate access to your pet’s bloodstream, which is especially important if emergency administration of drugs is needed.

Each surgery patient will be prepared with advanced sterilization techniques. Blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, temperature, and many other parameters are closely monitored by a qualified technician who will be dedicated to your pet during and after each procedure. We place an emphasis on pain management before, during, and after surgery.

We offer a wide range of surgical services including…

  • Dentistry – cleaning, polishing, and tooth extractions as needed
  • Spay and Neuter
  • Dewclaw removal
  • Feline declaw
  • Mass removal and biopsy
  • Laceration repair
  • Cystotomy
  • Eyelid mass removal

In some cases, our patients require more advanced surgical procedures. We are very fortunate to have multiple board certified surgeons in the area to which we will refer these patients as needed.
