Surgery

Routine and Specialty Surgeries

We perform routine surgeries such as spays and neuters or minor soft tissue surgeries, such as mass/tumor removals, “cherry eye” repair, eyelid tumor removals and dewclaw removal. We have a mobile veterinary surgeon on call to perform orthopedic (bone and joint) surgeries when necessary.

Pre-anesthetic Labwork

 

We require all pets undergoing anesthetic procedures be screened with bloodwork prior to being anesthetized. Bloodwork can show us if there are pre-existing medical conditions which may make your pet a higher risk surgery patient. We can adjust our anesthetic and surgical protocols to ensure that your pet’s unique conditions are accounted for before, during, and after surgery. The bloodwork gives us a baseline for future labwork in case your pet should become ill in the future.

We use a vital signs monitor to keep your pet’s blood pressure, body temperature, respirations, heart rate, and ECG measurements throughout the anesthetic procedure. This information is transferred post-operatively into our software so it becomes part of your pet’s medical record.

Advanced Surgical Procedures

 

We utilize a visiting veterinary surgeon to perform more complicated or orthopedic procedures. In this way we can accomplish ACL repairs (knee repair surgery), TPLO procedures, splenectomy, large or intra-abdominal tumor removal, amputations and fracture repairs.

Dr. Sebastian Gordon is a surgical specialist who performs advanced surgeries for veterinary practices in the DC metro area.

Dr. Gordon offers in-house surgical services so pet owners don’t need to travel elsewhere for the advanced surgery a pt requires. Instead, pet owners can feel secure that their pets remain in the care of their trusted family veterinarian.
