At Johns Creek Veterinary Clinic, our vets perform veterinary dental, ocular and soft-tissue surgeries as well as reproductive surgeries including spay & neuter, and c-section.
Skilled Surgical Care
At our Johns Creek animal hospital, our team offers a wide range of surgical procedures for pets while using best-in-practice surgical techniques and following stringent protocols.
While your pet is undergoing surgery, a dedicated nurse will provide anesthesia and monitor your animal continuously, using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be diligently administered.
Following surgery, we will take special care to monitor your pet's recovery and manage pain. We will also provide you with detailed instructions from your vet for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
At Johns Creek Veterinary Clinic our vets perform a range of surgeries, from soft tissue procedures to ocular and dental surgeries.
We ensure that pet parents are kept fully informed about why we are recommending a given procedure and provide detailed information regarding at-home post-operative care.
Our vets at Johns Creek Veterinary Clinic routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a pet, we surgically sterilize them to prevent unwanted litters, protect against various diseases and provide the animal with a longer life expectancy.
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for pets suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders. Soft tissue surgeries are also available for skin, gastrointestinal, cardiothoracic, urogenital, oncological and hepatic disorders.
Cesarean sections are performed to remove babies from their mother's uterus. C-sections are usually performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
If your pet is experiencing redness, pain or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may require ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for dogs and cats include cataract surgery, entropion surgery, ectropion surgery, tumor removal, cherry eye surgery, and exenteration of the orbit.
- Dental Surgery
Our vets provide dental surgeries for cats and dogs. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions and jaw fracture repair surgeries to treatment for periodontal disease.
The Surgery Process
We can assure you that we always act with your pet's best interests in mind when we recommend surgery. Our vets will help you fully understand our surgery recommendation, and ensure that you are comfortable making the decision to go ahead.
Surgical protocols at our hospital include:
- Pre-surgical Assessments
We will explain the details of the procedure, perform a physical examination of your pet, and ensure blood tests have been taken and reviewed by the vet so we can find out if your pet faces any risk of complications from anesthesia..
- Dedicated Surgical Suites
Surgeries are performed in our dedicated surgical suite. We keep this room completely sterile to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
- Surgical Attire
When in the surgical suite, our staff wear disposable masks and caps at all times. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear single-use gloves and sterile gowns.
- Sterile Packs & Equipment
We scrupulously sterilize, clean and wrap our equipment and instruments before every surgery.
