The Village Animal Hospital offers a wide range of basic surgical services, from spays and neuters to soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. We mostly handle routine medical and surgical cases, but may refer more complicated cases to specialists if we feel that it would be appropriate for the well-being of your pet.
Your pet's safety and comfort are incredibly important to us. To that end, we carefully evaluate your pet before surgery. Using a physical exam and blood tests, Dr. Segarra will develop a safe and effective anesthetic protocol for your pet. Equipped with the latest anesthetic and monitoring technology, we do our utmost to ensure that your pet is safe and comfortable during and after surgery.
Whether performing a routine surgery or an emergency procedure, you can have confidence that the entire staff at The Village Animal Hospital will work hard to ensure that each procedure is thorough and done as little stress as possible for both you and your pet.
We fully understand the decision to allow your pet to undergo surgery is never an easy one. To that end, we are happy to answer any questions regarding your pet's specific surgery. In fact, a pre-surgical consultation is an essential part of the process. Dr. Segarra will also provide you with information on postoperative care to ensure a rapid return to your pet's happy, healthy self.
The Village Animal Hospital offers the following soft tissue surgical procedures:
• Abdominal procedures
• Elective surgery
Should your pet require orthopedic surgery, Dr. Segarra can perform bone pinning surgery. If there is a procedure we cannot perform in house, we will gladly refer you to a veterinary specialist.
Anesthesia and Pain Management
No pet owner wants their pet to undergo surgery. At The Village Animal Hospital, the medical team ensures that the pain your pet experiences is minimal through a range of anesthesia and pain management protocols.
During surgery, your pet will be intubated with inhaled anesthesia using isoflurane and sevoflurane. Our team will monitor your pet's pulse with an oximeter during both surgery and recovery. These investments in the latest veterinary medicine and technology reflect the hospital's dedication to give your pet the best possible care.
We understand that your pet may experience pain for a time while they are recovering from surgery. We administer post-operative pain management via injectable and oral pain medications. Furthermore, our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with laser therapy, which helps with arthritis, post-operative care, as well as enhanced wound and surgical healing.
