No pet parent looks forward to the day when their beloved best friend must “go under the knife,” but surgery is often the most effective way to treat many serious injuries and disorders, and Norway Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer state-of-the-art facilities and equipment.
Our hospital provides a full range of surgical services ranging from standard spaying and neutering to advanced, highly specialized procedures.
Surgery specialties include:
- Foreign body removal
All surgeries are done under sterile conditions and patient safety is of the utmost importance. We offer—and strongly recommend—blood tests prior to any anesthetic procedure to help us assess the benefits and risks of surgery. The blood work tests for abnormalities, such as kidney disease, liver disease, anemia, and diabetes, that may not be found during the pre-surgical exam. For cats that have not already been tested, we recommend screening for Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). These diseases are highly contagious and when budgets are limited may be a more beneficial and prudent blood work option.
Patient safety and comfort is our main priority. Our experienced veterinary anesthesiologists provide skilled pain management during and after all surgical procedures, ensuring your pet recovers quickly and with minimum discomfort. We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient’s vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.
Our veterinary team will walk you through the entire process, giving you the tools to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s treatment options. We understand surgery is a stressful time for any owner, and we’re available every step of the way to answer questions and put your mind at ease.
