All Creatures Veterinary Hospital offers experienced veterinarians and dedicated staff committed to providing the safest and most comfortable surgical experience for your companion animals.
Surgical Services for All Pets
We believe your pet deserves a positive surgical experience. You can be assured your companions are safe and comfortable in our surgical suite. We offer modern surgical methods and technology, such as:
- Safe anesthesia
- Strict safety protocols
- Continuous monitoring of vitals
- Advanced diagnostic lab and imaging
Our surgical team performs a variety of procedures on many species, including spays and neuters. For complex orthopedic procedures and repairs, we refer to an orthopedic specialist. Our hospital does not perform declaw surgery.
Top veterinary surgeon, Dr. Karen Cherrone, DVM, comes to our hospital for more advanced surgeries including soft tissue surgeries, orthopedic procedures, and regenerative medicine for dogs and cats. Dr. Cherrone is board certified and is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons with more than 20 years of experience performing successful dog and cat surgeries.
Controlling Pain During and After Surgery
Our veterinarians are dedicated to preventing pain wherever possible. No animal deserves to suffer! A pain management plan is created for each surgical patient, and adjusted to meet every need.
We are able to anticipate the level of pain in each patient and treat for it in advance, to prevent the possibility of needless suffering. This pain prevention protocol includes pre-surgical medications, effective anesthesia during the procedure, and pharmaceutical support at home during the recovery period.
We also offer complementary methods for many patients, including acupuncture and laser therapy to enhance comfort and accelerate healing.
Spay and Neuter Pets
There are many medical benefits to spaying and neutering pets, including protection from various cancers and improved life expectancy. In addition, a decreased desire to roam and release from the drive to mate allows pets to focus on creating a more significant bond with their human family members.
More than 3 million pets are euthanized in shelters every year for lack of available homes. Unless your pet is part of a certified breeding program, we strongly recommend spaying and neutering all pets. In addition, we offer resources to help you adopt a new pet when you are ready to expand your animal family.
