Dr. Velu and the entire staff at Finn Hill Animal Hospital understand that the decision to allow your special companion to undergo surgery is never an easy one. We strive to ensure your pet's procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Perhaps the most important pre-surgical step is to discuss why we believe a particular procedure is necessary and what it entails. Our veterinary team will provide you with information on proper postoperative care and answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable knowing you are making the right choice for your pet.

Surgeries We Perform

Surgeries we perform include, but are not limited to:

  • Spay & Neuter for Dogs & Cats
  • Dental Cleanings & Procedures
  • Thyroid Surgery
  • Orthopedics
  • Eye or Skin Procedures
  • Bladder Surgery
  • Tumor Removal
  • Gastrointestinal Surgeries

Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care. We utilize a multi-parameter monitoring and anesthesia system to ensure your pet's safety during all surgeries.

Prior to surgery, your pet receives a thorough exam by the veterinary surgeon and pre-surgical blood tests. The results of these tests and your pet's past anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol. During surgery, your pet is cared for by an experienced veterinary technician who tracks blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, body temperature, and oxygen level.

We all know that pain can be difficult, but it also has many other detrimental effects on your pet's body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity, and causes behavioral changes, such as aggression, anxiety, and depression. At Finn Hill Animal Hospital, we practice the most up-to-date pain management protocols. For acute and chronic conditions, we use individualized and safe pain treatments, including NSAIDs (non-steroidal medications) and oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet.

As your pet is being discharged from the hospital, you will be provided with detailed information on how to properly care for them at home after surgery. We are also happy to answer any questions or concerns that may arise once you get your pet home.
