Pet Surgery in Aubrey

Excellence in Pet Surgery

The veterinarians and staff at Town & Country Animal Hospital understand that the decision to allow your beloved companion to undergo surgery is never an easy one. We strive to ensure your pet's procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Perhaps the most important pre-surgical step is to discuss why we believe a particular procedure is necessary and what it entails. Your veterinarian will provide you with information on proper postoperative care and answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable knowing you are making the right choice for your pet.

Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care. We utilize a multi-parameter monitoring and anesthesia system to ensure your pet's safety during all surgeries.

Prior to surgery, your pet is examined and a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and your pet's past anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet. We utilize the most current state of the art monitoring technology. During anesthesia, your pet is cared for by a well-trained and experienced veterinary technician using our monitoring system which tracks blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and oxygen level.

Prior to undergoing anesthesia, your pet receives a thorough exam by the veterinary surgeon and presurgical blood tests are performed. When warranted, an IV catheter is placed to give fluids and administer medications. Each pet is closely watched by a veterinary technician who is trained in anesthesia monitoring. We also monitor body temperature carefully.

Pain Management

We all know that pain hurts, but pain also has many other detrimental effects on your pet's body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity, causes behavioral changes (such as aggression, anxiety, and depression). Pain worsens diseases like arthritis and potentially some cancers. It interferes with the bond between you and your pet.

At Town & Country Animal Hospital, your Aubrey veterinarians practice the most up-to-date pain management protocol. For acute and chronic conditions, we use all available and safe resources, including NSAIDs (non-steroidal medications), as well as oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet.
