Surgical & Dentistry Procedures

 

Surgical procedures performed Monday through Friday at Edgerton Veterinary Clinic, include elective surgeries (spay, neuter, declaw), dental procedures and non-elective procedures (such as intestinal surgery, mass removals, and orthopedic procedures).

 

Surgical procedures performed Monday through Friday at Lakeland Veterinary Care (Stoughton, WI), include dental procedures, elective surgeries (cat neuters), and minor mass removals.

 

We are also able to offer special procedures performed in our hospital by the surgeon at Orchard Road Veterinary Surgery

What’s included in surgery & dental procedures:

  • Physical examination
  • Pre-surgical bloodwork 
  • Pre- and post-surgical pain management
  • Anesthesia, tailored for your pet
  • Surgery and/or dental cleaning and extractions
  • Complimentary nail trim
  • Laser treatment of the skin incision sites (if appropriate)

 

Prior to surgery:

  • Withhold food after 9pm the night before the surgery
  • Always offer free access to water
  • Give any medications your pet is receiving, unless indicated otherwise by your veterinarian

 

What to expect during surgery:

  • Intravenous fluids throughout duration of procedure via catheter
  • Thermal support using warm air circulating blankets
  • Monitoring by both experienced Certified Veterinary Technicians, as well as state-of-the-art digital electronic monitoring equipment
  • Anesthesia maintenance 
 

 

Upon completion of the surgery & dental procedures, pets will be monitored and kept comfortable until discharged from the clinic.  Any procedure that requires sutures to be removed will be done at a follow-up visit approximately 10-14 days after the surgery.  Dental extraction sites are closed with sutures that usually dissolve on their own in 2 weeks.  Some surgeries may require follow-up laser treatments which can be set up and discussed with your veterinarian and/or technicians. 

In spite of the intensive preparation and planning we put into every case, complications can arise. Reactions to anesthesia can be serious or fatal, bleeding can occur anytime an incision is made and infection may occur postoperatively. These complications are very unusual and Edgerton Veterinary Clinic protocols are designed to avoid them. But if complications occur, we will do everything possible to treat your pet. The additional costs of this treatment, if any, will be added to the fee for the procedure you have chosen.
