Surgical Services for Pets

We offer a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs at our Nashua clinic, using stringent surgical protocols. 

During each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided. 

Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your vet will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.

What to Expect from Surgery

We always keep you fully informed about why we are recommending a surgical procedure and regarding any post-operative care your pet will need at home. We practice stringent surgical protocols at our clinic.

Surgical Procedures

At Animal Medical Center of New England, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease 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. 

  • TPLO

    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.

  • Mass Removal

    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.

  • Foreign Body

    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

    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 Surgery

    Orthopedic surgeries correct injuries and diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet.

  • Dental Surgery

    Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.

The Surgery Process

We understand that the prospect of bringing your pet in for surgery can be frightening. Please be assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your furry companion. 

We will ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery, and that you are comfortable making the decision to move ahead.

If your pet requires advanced care, our vets will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Nashua, and work closely with your vet surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care. 

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, complete a physical examination of the patient, and make sure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.

Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
