Our experienced veterinarians can perform a broad range of surgical procedures and deliver top-notch results.
Round Rock Veterinary Surgical Services
We provide many surgical services to repair a wide range of injuries and illnesses for your dog or cat. Among the surgeries we offer are:
- Spaying and neutering
- Foreign bodies
- Mass removals
- Hernia repairs
- Declawing and tail docking
Before any surgical procedure, you must fill and submit our easy online surgery consent form
For surgical procedures, such as orthopedic surgery, which are best suited to being performed by a board certified surgeon, we can refer you to an outside specialist for the procedure.
You can rest assured that before any action is taken we will consult with you to discuss the procedure, answer questions and provide an estimate. Your companion will receive a full and thorough examination including blood work to check for abnormalities, sensitivity to anesthesia, or other potential complications.
While we perform the procedure we will monitor your pet for safety and comfort the whole time. We use heating pads and water blankets to maintain your pet’s temperature and watch their vital signs with an EKG, pulse oximetry, SPO2 and blood pressure monitoring. A veterinary technician is present the entire time to monitor your pet's condition.
Following surgery we will keep your pet in a specialized recovery area where they can be comfortable and monitored by our nursing staff. At this time a technician will advise you as to your pet’s condition. We make pain management a priority and offer a full day of hospitalization for recuperation and recovery.
This recuperation takes place in a comforting post-surgical environment, where your pet is under continuous care by a skilled recovery technician. When they are discharged, we will provide customized discharge instructions for your pet's at-home recovery.
