Surgery

Learning that your pet needs surgery can be a frightening time for a pet owner. You may be concerned about whether your companion will suffer discomfort and pain, or whether they will be adequately monitored for safety during the procedure. At Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital, we understand that although surgery is something we handle on a daily basis, it’s not something that you or your animal companion have to experience very often. Because of this, we make every effort to place you both at ease and make the experience as stress-free as possible. We want you to feel confident that your pet will be in excellent hands with our surgical team!

The doctors at Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital are experienced in performing a wide range of pet surgeries, from routine spays and neuters to complex orthopedic procedures. All surgeries are performed in our state of the art surgical suite, using cutting edge equipment and the most modern techniques. We use only the safest anesthetic products, and the most up to date monitoring equipment, because for us, your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priority.

If surgery is recommended for your pet, the first step we’ll take is explaining everything to you so that you completely understand the options available, as well as the benefits and risks associated with your pet’s proposed procedure. Before we proceed, we’ll also evaluate your pet to determine whether or not he or she is healthy enough to proceed. We never want to place our patients at unnecessary risk, and take every precaution to ensure a safe, uneventful experience.

Once your pet is cleared for surgery, and we’ve worked together to decide which course of action would be the wisest choice, our team will get to work developing a customized pain management protocol for your pet that is tailored to their specific needs. We want to keep your companion as comfortable as possible, while also reducing risk at every turn. Your pet will be prepped for surgery and pain medication carefully administered by our compassionate care team.

During surgery, our doctors will work with precision and great care to conduct the procedure as efficiently as possible. Throughout the procedure, our team of experienced veterinary technicians and assistants will remain on hand at all times to assist with surgery and to closely monitor your pet’s wellbeing. When surgery is complete, your pet will be gently relocated to our quiet recovery area where we will continue to monitor them as they begin to wake up from anesthesia.

A member of our team will reach out to you to discuss the surgery, explain how everything went and arrange a time for you to come pick up your pet. In most cases, surgical patients are ready to go home the same day as their procedure. Before you bring your pet home, we’ll go over our postsurgical care instructions, including an appropriate pain control plan if necessary, to help your pet recover as comfortably as possible at home.

If your pet needs surgery, rest assured that the team at Ocean Breeze is ready to assist! We’ll have your pet fixed up and on the road to a full and speedy recovery in no time!

      Dr Legg & her vet tech did a fantastic job handling my 90 lb. lab who can really be difficult. Service at the front desk is also superb. Dr. Graves would be happy to know how well you're taking care of his patients.
