Pet Surgery in the City of Central, LA
We know that it can be a stressful time when your pet needs an operation. At Crossroads Animal Hospital, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
Prior to surgery, our veterinarians highly recommend Pre-Anesthetic Blood Workup, Chest X-Rays, ECG (electrocardiogram), and Urinalysis ensuring the safest possible anesthesia & surgical experience for your pet. We perform laser therapy after all surgeries to accelerate the healing process and decrease inflammation.
We generally use a combination of injectable and gas anesthesia. Patients are closely monitored during surgery using state-of-the-art monitoring equipment as well as having a trained veterinary technician physically monitoring throughout the procedure. Pain is well controlled with any surgery using a combination of pre-surgery medications as well as sending home pain medication.
Our veterinary team will be diligent in ensuring we cure your pet’s ailment and call you with the good news during the operation. Multiple members of our staff will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly in the operating room.
Soft Tissue Surgery
This is any surgery not related to bones or joints. It can be routine elective procedures such as neuters and spays to much more complicated intra-abdominal surgeries. Our veterinary personnel does a careful evaluation that determines whether or not your pet requires soft tissue surgery. We strive to make your pet’s procedure as safe and comfortable as possible before, during, and after the surgery. Our veterinarians use the safest and most effective anesthesia to manage your pet’s pain during soft tissue surgery. We will closely monitor your pet’s vitals throughout the process.
Some routine surgeries include:
- Feline declaw (laser type instrument)
- Tumor or growth removals
- Eye surgeries
- Lacerations and wound repairs
If your pet has an emergency that requires surgical intervention, we can also perform abdominal explores, GDV (bloat) correction, and other emergency procedures.
