Our vets in Windsor perform many surgical procedures, from soft tissue surgeries and spay & neuter procedures to TTA surgeries, C-sections and more.
At our Windsor animal hospital, we offer a wide selection of surgical procedures for cats and dogs, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and use electronic patient monitoring equipment to monitor your pet. We also provide pain management.
Following surgery, our priorities shift to post-operative monitoring and pain management. The vet will also provide detailed instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Vet Surgery
You will always be kept fully informed about why we are recommending a surgical procedure. We will also clearly explain any post-operative care your pet will require at home and practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.
Medical and emergency surgeries help treat disease and repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our vets can assess your pet, recommend the appropriate course of action and take the least minimally invasive approach possible to perform the procedure and help your pet heal. At New England Veterinary Center & Cancer Care, our Windsor vets routinely perform these elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Mass Removal
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. Masses can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
In some cases, specialized skills or equipment are needed to perform pet surgery. If that is the case for your animal, your vet will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Windsor and work closely with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the very best care.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
It's imperative that these wounds be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
The Surgery Process
We understand that the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery can be frightening. Please be assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your furry companion.
We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery, and that you are comfortable making the decision to move ahead. If your pet requires advanced surgical treatment, our specialty vets will ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
- Pre-Surgical Assessments
We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
- Dedicated Surgical Suites
Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
- Surgical Attire
Our staff wear disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
- Sterile Packs & Equipment
We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
