At Walkertown Veterinary Hospital, we provide top-notch veterinary surgery for your pet. Our expert veterinarians perform soft-tissue, orthopedic and laser veterinary surgery on a daily basis. Whether your pet’s surgery was a planned spay or neuter or an unexpected emergency, our veterinary team is well equipped to provide your pet with the best surgical care available.
We know that veterinary surgery can be a scary idea for you and your pet and our team is here to answer any questions you may have and discuss any concerns you as a pet owner are feeling. Our veterinarians, veterinarian technicians and hospital team will provide superior care for your pet from check-in, through their veterinary surgery and during their stay with us at our hospital.
We have the instrumentation and expertise to perform a wide variety of routine and specialized surgeries including enterotomy, gastrotomy, hemilaminectomy, femoral head ostectomy, anterior cruciate ligament repair, and fracture repair by intramedullary pin placement. Depending on the procedure, we use injectable and/or inhalational anesthetics. We offer propofol and sevoflurane, the newest and safest of the veterinary anesthetics, for geriatric or high-risk surgeries. During anesthesia, we have pulse oximetry and EKG available for monitoring vital signs. Additionally, we use the monitoring skills of our three well-trained and vigilant veterinary assistants. We use sonication and either steam or chemical sterilization to ensure the cleanliness and sterility of our instruments.
