Surgery

Madisonville Animal Hospital offers a state-of-the-art surgical suite equipped with innovative tools to care for your pet. Prior to surgery, our experienced Dr. McDonald recommends running blood work on your furry friend. Blood work can indicate issues that may not be seen by a simple physical exam, and it is important to know that anesthesia can be administered to your pet as safely as possible. Our pets feel pain in the same manner as we do as people; therefore pain medication is administered to keep your pet as comfortable as possible during surgery. Before and after the procedure, your pet’s vital signs including heart rate and blood oxygen levels are constantly monitored by our veterinarian. At the conclusion of the treatment, your pet will be kept warm and will continue to be monitored as they recover from the anesthesia.

Madisonville Animal Hospital is prepared to handle nearly all surgical needs and will refer you and your pet to a specialist should the need arise. Dr. McDonald has successfully performed countless surgical procedures on pets in the Madisonville, Hammond, Covington and Mandeville areas, and she will bring that same level of care to your pet. If your pet is facing a surgical procedure, call the compassionate and experienced team at Madisonville at 985-845-4681.
