Our team understands that the idea of bringing your pet in for surgery can be nerve-wracking. But rest assured that we only suggest it when we believe it is the best option for your beloved pet.

We want to make sure you understand why we recommend a specific surgery for your pet, and that you feel well-informed and comfortable when deciding to move forward with the surgery.

Surgical Procedures

At Creston Veterinary Hospital, we can perform medical and urgent surgeries to help treat diseases and conditions in pets, as well as to repair injuries caused by accidents or trauma.

Our veterinarians may perform or refer out the following surgical services:

The Surgery Process

Before the surgery, we will make sure to conduct a comprehensive pre-surgical assessment. We'll start by giving your pet a thorough physical examination, and performing some blood tests. These tests will help determine if there will be any potential risks or anesthesia-related complications.

During surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia so your dog or cat is asleep and feels no pain during the procedure. They also track your cat or dog using electronic patient monitoring equipment.

Following surgery, our priorities are post-operative monitoring and providing medication for pain management. In addition, your veterinarian will provide detailed instructions for at-home care.

Sterilization Protocols

At our clinic, we have dedicated surgical suites that are meticulously maintained to ensure a sterile environment. This helps us prevent infections and cross-contamination, keeping our patients safe and healthy.

Our staff always wear sterile attire in the surgical suite. Additionally, we take great care in cleaning, sterilizing and wrapping our surgical instruments and equipment before each surgery.
