Hôpital Vétérinaire Roussillon offers various surgical procedures, including routine surgical interventions like spaying and neutering, as well as orthopedic and some emergency procedures.
How are surgical procedures performed?
We take every precaution to ensure that all the procedures we perform at our clinic go smoothly. As soon as they come in, every patient is cared for by their own team of dedicated professionals. Your vet, your pet’s surgeon and their team of animal health technicians will follow the surgical plan developed for their particular needs.
We usually recommend pre-surgery blood work to detect any early signs of disease. Depending on the results, we may modify the treatment plan. We also recommend administering intravenous fluids to reduce the risk of side effects from anesthesia. Throughout the procedure, we will monitor your pet’s vital signs (heart rate, breathing, blood pressure). Our team pays careful attention to every aspect of your pet’s recovery. We make sure they wake up in a safe and comfortable space and that they receive a personalized pain management plan. Our team will also support you throughout your pet’s recovery.
What is laser surgery?
Laser surgery is a state-of-the-art surgical option for our clients who want the safest treatment for their pets. Instead of scalpel blades, a surgical laser is used. This technology has a number of advantages and has proven much better than traditional surgery in many cases. Using a surgical laser has multiple benefits for pets, including increased precision, less bleeding, pain and swelling, and a faster recovery time. Almost any surgical procedure can be performed with a laser, depending on your vet’s assessment.
What are orthopedic procedures?
Orthopedic problems include many types of injuries, including sprains, damaged ligaments and fractures. Some patients may require orthopedic procedures like getting a cast and knee, patella and hip surgeries. For more serious injuries, your pet may need to be referred to a veterinary centre where an orthopedic surgeon can evaluate their condition.
