Our doctors are not only skilled veterinarians who diagnose and cure your pet’s health issues, they are also skilled surgeons. Apollo Pet Hospital & Resort has a surgical suite on site and our doctors use all the latest techniques during their procedures. We offer minor and major surgery to our clients. Procedures done within our clinic include:
- Foreign Object Removal
- Exploratory Surgery
- Spay/Neuter (sterilization)
- Cesarean Section
- Tumor Removal
- Minor skin surgery
Our doctors will perform an initial examination of your pet to determine if surgery is required. Usually blood work, a physical exam, and possibly an x-ray is used to diagnose and identify the potential issue that needs treatment. Once a course of action has been decided upon between you and the doctor, surgery will be scheduled as soon as possible.
Pre-op care, or care given before surgery, includes monitoring of vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels. Your pet will be sedated to ensure that they will remain calm and peaceful during surgery. Following surgery, our staff will keep your pet warm and comfortable with medicine and comfortable surroundings.
Our team will monitor their vital signs anywhere from a few hours to a few days depending on the scale of surgery performed. When our staff determines that your pet is stable enough to go home to recuperate, you will be given post-op instructions and a follow up appointment.
