Our veterinarians are experienced surgeons and fully capable of performing 95% of the routine surgeries presented to us.
For the other 5%, such as orthopedic or extremely complex soft tissue surgery, we call in our consulting board-certified surgeon, Dr. Christopher Dillon. He does his work right in our hospitals, eliminating the need and expense of going to a referral hospital.
We understand that surgery for our pets is always a little scary, even when the procedure is as simple as a spay or neuter. At Westchester Veterinary Associates, we’ve made our surgery suite a worry-free zone. How have we done that? By prioritizing patient safety and comfort.
Some people are concerned about anesthesia, and while there is always a degree of risk, we utilize the safest available anesthetics and require pre-anesthetic blood testing to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia. Your pet’s vital signs will also be monitored throughout the procedure. We also provide skilled pain management during and after all surgical procedures, ensuring your pet recovers quickly and with minimum discomfort.
If you think your pet could benefit from our surgical services or you’d like to schedule a consultation, just give us a call – we’re here to help!
