The doctors at Four Paws Animal Hospital at Johns Creek perform routine and emergency surgeries on dogs and cats. Spays and neuters are the most common surgery that we perform, as this is the most common surgical procedure that dogs and cats get during their life.
We regularly perform routine and emergency surgeries on dogs and cats. While spays and neuters are the most common surgery that we perform, we also commonly perform soft tissue surgeries, including mass removals, abdominal exploratory surgery, bladder surgery, intestinal surgery, and ophthalmic surgery.
Surgery patients are admitted the day of surgery and usually are dismissed the same day, although sometimes they do stay overnight for observation.
We understand the important bond that you have with your pet and maybe nervous about a surgical procedure. Rest assured we go above and beyond to provide the highest level of veterinary care possible as recognized by our AAHA accreditation.
Presurgery, we give all patents preoperative bloodwork that helps to ensure the health of your pet during surgery. We also give our patients an intravenous catheter placed to allow us to give fluids during surgery as well as provide immediate access for emergency medicine in case of complications. For patients with a preexisting heart condition, we recommend chest x-rays and an electrocardiogram before sedation, which we can perform on-site. While your pet is undergoing surgery, we monitor your pet's blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen level, and temperature that enable us to make critical adjustments. After surgery, we continue to monitor the health of your pet.
We understand that even with all these precautions, you may still be nervous. Please feel free to speak with us about your questions and concerns. We are more than willing to address and concerns that you may have.
