All kinds of surgeries take place at the LaSalle Veterinary Clinic.
We practice mainly what our medical jargon calls soft tissue surgeries: sterilization, cystotomy, laparotomy, enterotomy and enterectomy, gastrostomy to remove foreign objects, removal of various masses, docking for medical reasons, enucleation, entropion, abscesses and wounds…
We practice declawing, but we would like to see your animal for consultation to discuss with you different options such as installing claw covers, behavior modifications, scratching posts, as well as pain management protocol.
An animal health technician will monitor your pet throughout his surgery and when he awakes as well, by monitoring oxygen saturation and temperature. Specifically designed cages in our pre-operatory room allows a technician to keep an eye on your pet during premedication and she will follow him throughout the surgery. As your pet awakens, the veterinarian and technician will ensure that he is comfortable and does not present any pain.
When your pet wakes up, we’ll be happy to call you to give you some news. When your pet is ready to leave, you will meet a technician who will advise you about home care and any necessary follow-ups.
