Surgery

We provide a wide array of soft tissue surgeries including, but not limited to, spays and neuters, mass and tumor removals, bites and other wound/laceration treatments, foreign material removals/obstructions, front declaws on a case by case basis, amputations, bladder stone removals. Elective surgeries are performed Monday through Friday by appointment only. Emergency surgeries are worked into the schedule as needed. We currently do not provide orthopedic surgery. Instead, we partner with local surgeons, should the need arise, for more specialized surgeries and orthopedics.

Knowing the Risks, Ensuring Safety

It is very important to understand that every surgery comes with some risk. As a result, Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care undergoes extensive measures to ensure the safety of your pet. Every patient has blood work performed prior to surgery to ensure they can metabolize, or break down the medications and anesthesia used. Medications can be tailored for each individual patient depending upon age and pre-existing conditions. While in surgery, each patient has an IV catheter and receives IV fluids to achieve and maintain adequate blood pressure. Each patient is monitored closely by a nurse, and ECG, blood pressure and oxygen saturation monitors are used to ensure safety.

The Surgical Process

When setting up a surgery, one of our experienced nurses will call you to discuss pre-surgical, day-of, and post-surgical procedures. In addition, we discharge every pet with written instructions for your review. We will be happy to assist you with any additional questions or concerns that arise at any time.

COVID-19 Update for Our Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family

Effective June 25th, 2020

Even though we have resumed full services and restrictions are starting to ease in our region, the coronavirus is still present and a serious concern. For that reason, we feel it is in the best interests of our team and clients to continue curbside care for the foreseeable future.

This means we will continue to limit access to our hospital to Woodley Gardens team members and client pets only, and our doctors will communicate with you via ZOOM conference during the appointment, or on the phone right after your pet’s appointment. If you use the ZOOM app, you can see your pet during the appointment. You can view our complete curbside protocol here.

We will also continue to maintain rigorous cleaning protocols, strict hand-washing procedures, and a mandatory stay-at-home policy for any staff member who is feeling ill. Temperatures are taken before each shift, and we require masks for all staff as well.

We ask that if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 that you find alternative transportation for your pet and alert us that he or she is coming from a COVID-19 positive household.

Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation, and please check our Facebook page for timely updates.

Stay safe and well, everyone!

The Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Team
