Our Veterinary Surgeon
A veterinary surgeon has undergone four years of training after veterinary school to become certified with the ACVS.
Why a Veterinary Surgery Specialist?
While a regular veterinarian is able to offer a whole host of surgical procedures to help maintain and restore their patients' health, some procedures require training and expertise beyond a regular veterinarian's.
A board-certified veterinary surgeon is able to assess your pet and conduct complex surgeries in order to address its health issues in all manner of situations. You can trust our veterinary surgeon to provide your pet with the best in veterinary care.
What to Expect with Veterinary Surgery in Nashua
At Animal Medical Center of New England, our surgical center is equipped with cutting-edge surgical instrumentation and equipment. Everything we do, every decision we make, is designed to ensure post-operative success for your pet.
Anesthesia & Pain Management
Each patient has an anesthetic plan that is tailored to his or her specific condition. Overall cardiovascular health and lab work are taken into consideration with each pet.
We take extra care to ensure your pet is pain-free during and after surgery often by using a multimodal approach (i.e. local anesthetic, epidural anesthesia and systemic medications).
Continuous Patient Monitoring
We use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment (EKG, oscillometric blood pressure, arterial line, pulse oximetry, end tidal CO2, etc.) to monitor your pet’s vitals during surgery.
All of our procedures utilize a strict sterile technique. This means our operative suite has positive pressure airflow and the room is cleaned after every procedure.
Our surgeons also use sterile prep and full surgical attire (sterile gloves, surgical cap, surgical gown).
Once the surgery is complete, your veterinarian will contact you to discuss the procedure and plan.
Some pets are able to return home the next day while others are required to stay longer. It ultimately depends on the complexity of the procedure and your pet’s health status.
When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will provide you with discharge instructions and answer any questions you have.
Veterinary Surgical Procedures
At Animal Medical Center of New England, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat diseases and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.
Our Nashua vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
If your dog has a torn cruciate ligament, your veterinarian may recommend TPLO, or Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy, surgery.
The procedure involves making a cut through the tibia, then rotating the top section (the tibial plateau) backward until the angle between the tibia and femur is appropriately level.
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. Masses can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
These wounds must be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet.
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.
