SURGICAL SERVICES

Our team is here to help.
APPOINTMENT

Any time your pet undergoes even a simple surgical procedure, you want to ensure that they are in good hands. Animal Medical Care understands that every time surgery is required, special consideration must be given throughout the process.

If your pet needs surgery, you can trust that AMC will provide him or her with the utmost care and attentionfrom the pre-op exam through recovery. Animal Medical Care follows pain management and anesthesia protocol designed to ensure your pet’s health and safety.

Surgical procedures at AMC’s AAHA-accredited animal hospital include:

Spay & Neuter Surgery

Animal Medical Care strongly recommends spaying or neutering your dog or cat, unless you are in the breeding business. Unplanned or unwanted litters of puppies or kittens place a great burden on animal shelters and pet owners.

Moreover, spaying or neutering your pet helps eliminate the risk of uterine infections, breast cancer, prostrate problems, and testicular cancer. For the best health results, kittens should be spayed or neutered between four to six months. For puppies, AMC will make a recommendation based on your pet’s lifestyle and breed based on the latest veterinary research.

Although spays and neuters are considered “routine,” any surgical procedure requires a highly skilled veterinarian team and a safe and effective anesthetic protocol. At AMC, a trained veterinary technician will monitor your pet’s vital signs throughout the procedure and recovery, while a veterinarian performs the surgery. Your pet will then be given an individualized post-op pain management plan.

Soft Tissue Surgery

Soft tissue surgery is simply any surgery not related to bones or joints. It ranges from routine elective procedures, such as spays and neuters, to much more complicated intra-abdominal surgeries. If the careful evaluation shows that your pet is in need of soft tissue surgery, Animal Medical Care’s team of veterinarians and veterinarian technicians will strive to make your pet’s procedure as safe and comfortable as possible before, during, and after the surgery.

In order to manage your pet’s pain during soft tissue surgery, we use the safest and most effective anesthesia and analgesia. Our veterinarians and technicians will closely monitor your pet’s vitals throughout the process.

When should I bring my pet to Animal Medical Care?

If you notice the following signs, you should bring your pet in for a check-up. Our team of qualified veterinarians will conduct an examination and determine the best course of action for the pet’s well-being.

Signs that indicate a soft tissue issue in your pet:

  • Abnormal lumps and bumps that you can see or feel
  • Weight loss
  • Straining to urinate
  • Vomiting
  • Shaking head or painful ears

Our AAHA-accredited hospital has all the tools necessary to diagnose and treat soft tissue problems in dogs or cats.

Orthopedic Surgery

Bones, joints, ligaments, and tendonsthey can get out of whack. Animal Medical Care is here to determine the extent of your pet’s injury and decide on the best course of treatment, whether non-invasive or surgical. Should surgery be required, our Gainesville, Georgia AAHA-accredited hospital helps us make the procedure as comfortable as possible for your pet.
