The experienced veterinary team at Ghent Veterinary Hospital is able to offer a variety of surgical options — from routine procedures such as spay/neuter to more complex surgeries such as evaluating/removing obstructions.

Our compassionate staff will use the best instrumentation available to closely monitor your pet before, during, and after their procedure.  What happens during surgery day?

  • We will speak to you the morning of surgery, assess your pet, and answer any questions or concerns you may have prior to surgery.
  • Your pet will have pre-anesthetic bloodwork performed in-house to ensure organ systems are functioning properly.
  • A sedative will be administered along with pain medication, and an intravenous catheter will be placed to allow for fluid therapy & medication during the procedure.
  • Once this has been performed, your pet will be placed under general anesthesia and closely monitored by experienced staff throughout the procedure.
  • All surgery patients receive pre-emptive pain management and laser therapy is standard to aid in recovery from all non-cancerous surgeries
  • Later in the day, when your pet is ready to go home, we will go over all instructions with you as well as answer your questions.

Our focus is on safety, pain management, and precise surgery.
