"The staff answered all my questions and took the time to explain the spay procedure for my cat. I appreciate the information and caring attitude by everyone at AHOC."
We routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgical procedures.
Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for pets suffering from ear, nose and throat disorders, as well as cardiothoracic, hepatic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, skin and oncological disorders.
A caesarean section is the surgical removal of puppies or kittens from the uterus. We perform c-sections in emergencies where the mother struggles to give birth naturally.
We perform orthopedic surgeries to correct diseases and injuries of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and other skeletal structures.
Spaying & Neutering
Spaying and neutering are the surgical sterilization of an animal under general anesthesia to help prevent disease and provide pets with an extended life expectancy.
Our vets offer a variety of oral surgeries for dogs and cats.
The Surgery Process
We understand that it can be frightening to learn that your pet needs surgery.
Please rest assured that the recommendation of surgery is made with the best interest of your pet in mind.
We will ensure that you understand why surgery is recommended, and are comfortable making the decision to go ahead.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. Our veterinary team will verify the specifics of the procedure, examine the patient and ensure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet is at risk for any anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a room used only for sterile surgical procedures as a precaution to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff will wear disposable caps and masks at all times in the surgical suite. Those directly involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. All of our surgical instruments and equipment are carefully cleaned, sterilized, and wrapped prior to each procedure in order to prevent infections.
