Edinburgh Pet Health Center

Surgical Care & Anesthesia

Surgeries performed by our veterinarians include ovariohysterectomies (spays), neuters, declaws, dew claw removals, lump removals, laceration repairs, abscess care, intestinal surgery to remove obstructions due to foreign objects, cancer and intussucceptions, bladder surgery to remove stones, hernia repair, exploratory surgery, and others.

In addition, a board-certified surgeon is available to perform more specialized procedures and orthopedic surgery at our hospital. Those surgeries include fracture repair, knee surgery, triple pelvic osteotomy for hip dysplasia, ear surgery, and countless other procedures.

Our surgical suite is only utilized for surgeries and is maintained in a clean and sterile manner. We utilize the best practices for safe anesthesia including appropriate drug selection for each case, proper pain management, gas anesthesia, warming devices, and blood pressure, ECG and pulse oximeter monitoring. A certified veterinary technician is present at all times to monitor all vital signs and help maintain a safe anesthetic procedure. We encourage pre-anesthetic diagnostic testing to reduce the level of risk associated with anesthesia. With accurate information, no pet is “too old” for anesthesia. We are eager to answer your questions and help you make the right decisions regarding your pet’s anesthesia needs.
