Pet Surgery in Destrehan, LA
At Destrehan Animal Hospital, we can perform almost any surgery your cat or your dog could need, or find the right specialist to help with the operation. Our experienced veterinarians provide many surgical services at our clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. We do occasionally refer cases to specialists (board-certified veterinary surgeons) to perform complex operations when advanced equipment or training will be beneficial.
Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures is extremely important to us. Our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians is skilled in using anesthesia and monitoring patients to ensure their safety and provide the most comfortable experience. Anesthesia and patient monitoring vary greatly from clinic to clinic. You can be confident that we use the most effective and up-to-date protocols. The type of anesthesia we use depends on the procedure. Some require general anesthesia, while others may only call for local anesthesia. We also closely monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it’s routine or more advanced.
