Why You Can Trust Our Pet Surgery Capabilities

Pet parents have every right to want the best care for their animal companions, especially where surgery is concerned. These are just some of the things we do to keep your pet safe:

  • We recommend pre-surgical laboratory testing to evaluate your pet’s health and increase their safety.
  • For anesthesia, we use up-to-date and reliable monitoring and surgical equipment. This allows us to observe your pet’s vital signs visually and electronically.
  • All patients are kept warm during their surgery to prevent the potential for hypothermia.
  • We implement pain control before, during, and after your pet’s surgery, and recommend taking home pain medication to help your pet recover comfortably at home.

How to Schedule Surgery for Your Pet

Elective surgeries must be scheduled by appointment. This guarantees that every patient coming in for surgery on any given day receives individual attention from our veterinary team. Simply give us a call to schedule your pet’s surgery, and we’ll let you know if we need to see them in advance for an exam and blood work. We always examine patients and do lab testing if we think it’s necessary to reduce anesthesia risks.

Cryotherapy/Cryosurgery

Cryotherapy is a cutting-edge treatment method that uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy abnormal, diseased or infected tissue. It is used to treat a variety of diseases and disorders, particularly skin conditions. The application of extreme cold results in the death of the targeted tissue while simultaneously numbing the surrounding sensory nerves, thereby reducing pain.

Animal Hospital of Lewisville routinely uses cryotherapy to address a number of conditions, including distichiae (extra eyelashes), as well as the removal of warts, skin lesions, tumors and more. Some of the many advantages of cryotherapy for pets include:

Cryosurgery

  • Usually only requires mild sedation (varies pet to pet)
  • Quick, safe, and effective
  • Minimal after care is needed
  • Pinpoint accuracy
  • Little to no discomfort
