Surgery

 

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Willow Bend Animal Clinic, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We will also develop a strategy for keeping your best friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions you have will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the compassionate, experienced team at Willow Bend Animal Clinic in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

      We had used a Vet Hospital for 18 years and the last few years we never saw the same doctor. The last time we took our fur baby to them for a urinary tract infection after paying over $600 for test and assurance she did not have diabetes she still was not well. We took her to Dr Dunaway and within 15 minutes he came said her blood sugar count was 550 he put her on medication and we have kept it under control. We have been going to WILLOW BEND ANIMAL CLINIC Ever since.

      Thank you Dr.Thompson from the bottom of my heart for helping to make a very difficult situation and heart wrenching decision with our boy Tank easier on our family. Your compassion and kindness never goes unnoticed. Our family, collectively, has used Willow Bend Clinic since you started practicing there so many years ago. My dad considers you to be a super hero 🙂 Thank you again for always being there when we need you! The Campbell family and Clarence Sanders.

      Dr. Hunt and Dr. Dunaway have always been so awesome. Front desk girls are also very welcoming. When strays find you on the regular, a good vet is a must!

      They saved our puppy Kano’s life. He contracted Parvo and was very sick. They nursed him back to health! My family is so grateful!! He probably wouldn’t have survived if it hadn’t been for Willow Bend and all the caring staff.
