Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We we’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your furry friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your loved one’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we will be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions that arise will be answered as we get your companion settled in and prepared for surgery. Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your pet’s vital signs and pain levels.

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible. Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the experienced, compassionate team at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

      The staff at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon are awesome! They cry with you when you have to say good bye to a faithful friend and celebrate with you when you add a new kitten to the family. I have had excellent care for my cats over the last 30 years.

      After receiving denials of same day “urgent” appointments from our current vet (of 6 years) twice in a 6 month period, Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon took care of us and saw our dog in both times of need. We officially will never go anywhere else .

      We recently welcomed a new puppy into our family. Without hesitation we contacted Dr Gass to see our pet due to the compassionate, thorough care he gave our last dog. Dr Gass and his team have earned our complete trust — thank you for always going above and beyond! We highly recommend this clinic!

      We have been going to Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon since we got our dog 16 years ago. They have been wonderful to our dog and to our family. About 5 years ago our dog became very sick and we thought we would have to put him down. Dr. Lafond saw us and started talking about her dog when it was sick. Due to talking to her we found out our dog was allergic to penicillin. He was taking a medication due to teeth cleaning which had penicillin in it. If it wasn’t for Dr. Lafond we believe we would have lost him! Due to old age we had to put our beloved Thumper down this past spring. The love and support we got from Dr. Lafond and the staff was more than what we could imagine! Thank you so much for taking such good care of Thumper!
