Veterinary surgery is sometimes necessary for pet health

When your pet needs to have surgery, it can be a little intimidating. From anesthesia to the actual surgical procedure, and all the details and decisions in between, it’s no surprise that many pet owners feel overwhelmed at best – and frightened at worst.

If you find yourself in position where your beloved family friend needs to have a procedure performed, though, you can have utmost confidence in our abilities at Animal Family Veterinary Care Center. Our veterinary surgery facilities and advanced offerings are top notch, and we have no doubt that we can provide the best for you and your pet.

Safety is Key

No matter whether you are a human, dog, or cat, safety when it comes to surgery is of utmost importance. You need to have confidence that the medical team responsible for your four-legged family member have your pet’s best interest at heart.

Animal Family Veterinary Care Center is accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). This means that you can rest assured that we are practicing according to the highest standards in the industry.

We also take our jobs as your pet’s surgeon, anesthetist, and recovery team very seriously. While some practices may cut corners, our hospital treats every veterinary surgery as your human surgeon would. Placing intravenous catheters, providing well-trained staff to monitor anesthesia, utilizing the best in monitoring equipment and practices, and excellent pain management come with each and every surgery performed in our building.

Advanced Veterinary Surgery Options

Veterinarians are pretty amazing, if we do say so ourselves. Can you imagine if your general practitioner in human medicine not only treated several different species but also was your ophthalmologist, dentist, gastroenterologist, obstetrician, surgeon, and dermatologist?

While our veterinary staff is very adept at diagnosing and treating all sorts of conditions that affect our animal patients, and all of our doctors are capable and experienced with many routine procedures, sometimes a specialist is necessary. Board-certified veterinary surgeons complete additional training and achieve a high level of experience in more advanced procedures during a residency program. They must also pass a certification examination demonstrating their expertise in veterinary surgery.

When it comes to more complicated and advanced procedures, we are happy to be able to offer the services of Dr. Kristi Sandman, a board-certified veterinary surgeon, to our patients. From orthopedic surgeries such as advanced fracture repairs and cruciate ligament surgeries to involved soft tissue procedures, Dr. Sandman brings a whole new level of surgery services to our pet patients.

Please know that we have each pet’s best interest at heart in everything that we do, and when it comes to veterinary surgery, there are no exceptions. Don’t hesitate to call us any time for more information regarding the services we provide.
