Surgical Services for Pets

Our team of skilled veterinarians offers a range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Toledo clinic, using stringent surgical protocols. 

Throughout each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided. 

Once your pet's surgery is complete, your vet will provide you with detailed instructions for post-operative care at home, including instructions regarding administering medications, changing dressings, signs of infection to watch for, and when to bring your pet back for a follow-up appointment.

What to Expect from Surgery

At Shoreland Animal Hospital we believe that communication is a vital part of providing your pet with the best possible care. Our team will always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a particular surgical procedure and regarding any post-operative care your pet will need at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.

Surgical Procedures

At Shoreland Animal Hospital, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.

Our Toledo vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:

The Surgery Process

We recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your furry companion. We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery and that you are comfortable making the decision to move ahead.

If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Toledo, and work closely with your vet surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care. 

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.

Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
