At Hilton Vet Hospital, we perform vet surgery to a high standard of safety, sterility and professionalism.
Pet Surgical Procedures
We have a dedicated sterile surgery area where we can scrub up, and perform sterile surgery without the concern of contamination and infection. Our qualified and experienced staff are well trained to do advanced monitoring of your pet’s vital signs while under anaesthesia. This can include heart rate, respiratory rate, temperature, oxygen saturation and blood pressure.
A surgical procedure might be necessary to treat a problem your pet is experiencing, like:
Spay or castration
Debridement or removal of damaged tissue
Exploration of the abdomen
Foreign body removal
During surgery, your pet will get:
Sterile procedure in a sterile theatre
Heat mat to stay warm
Fluid warmer to warm drip fluid
Intravenous fluid drip
Triple pain relief
A intravenous fluid drip is placed to keep the blood pressure stable and make sure your pet wakes up feeling fully hydrated. As we warm the drip fluid, your pet will be comfortable and warm during the surgical procedure. Your pet will be connected to an advanced surgical monitor that allows us to keep a close eye on temperature, heart rate, respiration and oxygen saturation. The surgery is done under total sterile conditions to prevent infections.
Your pet will receive triple pain relief to make sure all pain is under control. Pain relief includes an anti-inflammatory that lasts 24 hours, a strong pain killer that last 6 hours and a long acting local anaesthesia that blocks the pain at the surgical site. As soon as your pet is fully recovered from the anaesthesia and able to walk we will ring you and organise a time for you to pick up your pet.
Your pet might go home with an Elizabethan collar, depending on the surgery, to prevent her from licking the wound. We also provide pain relief for the next three days. After 2 weeks, the stitches are removed.
