Our Pet Surgery Services in Topeka, KS

We know that it can be stressful when your pet needs an operation. Our team of caring experts will be with you every step of the way. We’ll be providing complete pre-operative information for you and your pet, including when to keep them from eating the night before the operation to a full schedule for the day. If your pet goes under anesthesia, we require blood work to ensure they’re healthy enough for the operation.

Pet Surgery at Stone House

Surgery

At Stone House Animal Hospital, we offer a wide range of surgical procedures, including spays and neuters and soft tissue surgeries. All surgical patients are monitored with electrocardiography, pulse oximetry, and blood pressure for the duration of anesthesia. Some of the surgical procedures offered are:

  • Spay
  • Neuter
  • Foreign body removal
  • Cystotomy
  • Mass removal

During the operation, our team will diligently ensure we monitor your pet’s vitals and call you with the good news once the procedure is complete. Multiple staff members will be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly in the operating room.

Once your pet is out of surgery, we’ll contact you immediately to ensure you have all the information to bring it home and ensure they’re comfortable and ready to begin healing. We may also need to schedule follow-up appointments to ensure the healing process is going well.

Anesthesia and Your Pet

We understand that you may be concerned when your pet needs anesthesia. Our hospital takes every precautionary step possible to reduce the risk associated with anesthesia.

Before anesthesia, our veterinary team will examine your pet. This examination will include listening to the patient’s heart and lungs and taking their temperature. The next step is pre-anesthetic blood work. Blood tests are crucial in creating a safe anesthetic protocol for your pet. Though the risk of anesthesia can not be eliminated, blood tests help us to tailor the anesthesia to your pet. This specialized anesthesia protocol also allows us to perform surgical procedures on senior patients safely.

Once your pet is under anesthesia, heart rate and oxygen saturation monitors help us to ensure your pet is doing well.

We strongly believe that pets undergoing anesthesia should not be dismissed from the hospital before they are awake. Our staff closely monitors our post-op patients, and hospitalized pets receive immediate medical care if any issues arise.

If you are apprehensive about anesthesia, please let our staff know, and we will discuss your concerns.

Surgical Protocols

Every pet, regardless of age, deserves to be healthy and pain-free. Our surgical protocols are in place for safety and comfort.

All surgical patients are required to have pre-anesthetic blood work. This helps us to know how your pet’s organs are functioning. Information provided by blood analysis is crucial to tailoring anesthetic to your patient. Though it is impossible to eliminate all risks, blood tests, and tailored anesthesia significantly improve the safety of anesthesia. So much so that senior patients can safely have surgeries to enhance the quality of their life!

Stone House Animal Hospital believes pain management is of the utmost importance! A surgical patient should receive pain medications. Our patients receive injectable pain medication immediately before surgery, so they don’t awaken in pain and are sent home with oral pain medications.
