Surgery

One of the most important components of All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center is our veterinary surgical center, where our compassionate doctors use their experience and advanced equipment to provide surgical services for the pets in the Asheville area.

Blood work is strongly recommended before any surgical procedure. All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center has our own diagnostic laboratory in our clinic, and we can obtain results in a matter of minutes. Our laboratory can determine liver, kidney, and pancreatic function, along with electrolyte levels. Our complete blood count (CBC) unit provides red and white blood cell counts, along with platelet analysis. These values provide valuable information to our veterinarians which could not be determined by a physical exam alone and assists our veterinarians in deciding whether an animal is a healthy candidate for surgery.

Pain prevention is required before any surgery at All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center. Remember that our pets feel pain in much the same way we do. Pain medication will also be dispensed post-surgery to help ensure your pet remains as comfortable as possible.

During the surgical procedure, the heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels of each pet are constantly monitored by our experienced veterinarians and staff. If the pet experienced trauma or the required surgery is particularly invasive, monitoring will continue in the intensive care unit (ICU) section of our hospital.

Our experienced veterinarians perform many types of surgery, ranging from routine procedures to more complicated operations. Some of the many surgeries we perform include ovariohysterectomy (spay), neuter, dewclaw removal, declaw, amputations, mass/tumor removal, enucleation (eye removal), foreign body removal, and bladder stone removal. These are just a sampling of the surgical services offered at All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center; if your precious pet is in need of a procedure not listed here, please call one of our team members for more information.
