Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Animal Medical Center of Bel Air, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your best friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we’ll be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions you have will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your companion recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the experienced, compassionate team at Animal Medical Center of Bel Air in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

      Recently I had to bring my cat in for some procedures. Given her nervous tendencies, I expected her to be a little rattled when I picked her up - but she couldn't have been happier, and it was clear she'd been well taken care of. Thank you!

      I took a poodle/mutt guy that got bite in nose and mouth (thru the fence) by a neighbors pit/rotty. Blackie was crying sitting in one spot of the yard. Blood coming from nose and mouth. He was make a snorting sound like swallowing blood. I didn’t know how bad bite was or if serve.

      I googled and called and ladies said bring him in. We were both scared. When I arrived at vet office ladies were great. Gentleman working there were super nice and kind to me and Blackie.

      The vet (male vet) was very nice and checked Blackie. We left with pain meds and antibodies.

      Blackie was hurt bad thank goodness. The staff and vet were great.

      Truly wonderful staff and Doctors!! I have been there several times through the years. I can't tell you enough how wonderful everyone here is. I have had to put down two of my cat babies here and everyone was so kind to both me and my sick cats. My cat Ping was happy and actually purring right before it was "time". I am forever grateful for that.
