Pet Surgery on The Peninsula
Many pets will need surgery at some time in their lives, and at Colony Animal Hospital in Newport News, VA, we make it our highest priority to ensure that every surgical patient we treat receives only the best possible care. We place a strong emphasis on safety and comfort, which is why we use only the latest surgical techniques and equipment, both for the surgery itself and for monitoring. We also use innovative methods of pain management before, during, and after surgery.
Our veterinarians are experienced to perform a variety of procedures on several pet species, including dogs, cats, and some pocket pets. The most common pet surgical procedures that we perform at our hospital include:
- Soft tissue surgery
- Cesarean sections
- Exploratory surgery
- Orthopedic/advanced surgery
- Dental surgery
About Our Pet Surgical Suite
For the safety of our patients, we complete pre-anesthetic blood work prior to any procedure we perform to ensure that they are healthy enough for surgery. We use only state-of-the-art anesthetics and monitor all patients while they are under anesthesia using sophisticated wireless Bluetooth monitoring equipment. This equipment constantly monitors all vitals, including heart rate, blood pressure, and cardiac electrical activity.
We also administer pain medication and provide a warm air-circulating blanket during surgery for your pet’s comfort. Our advanced pain management options include constant rate infusion, transdermal patches, nerve blocks, and the most effective medications. By effectively managing your pet’s pain during and after surgery, we can help them recover comfortably.
