Our Pet Surgery Services in Topeka, KS
As a pet owner, it can be a difficult and stressful time when your furry friend needs to undergo surgery. Whether it’s for a routine procedure or an emergency, you want to make sure that your pet is receiving the best possible care. This is where the expertise of a veterinary surgeon comes into play. A veterinary surgeon is a highly trained medical professional who specializes in performing surgery on animals. At Stone House Animal Hospital, we have a team of veterinary surgeons who are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to your pet.
When your pet requires surgery, it’s important to have a clear understanding of what will happen both before and after the procedure. Our team will provide you with all of the necessary information, including what to do the night before the surgery, such as withholding food, and a full schedule for the day of the procedure. We understand this can be a confusing and anxious time for you and your pet; we strive to make the process as straightforward as possible.
One of the most important parts of pet surgery is the pre-operative evaluation. This is where we assess your pet’s overall health and determine whether they are a good candidate for the procedure. If your pet requires anesthesia, we will perform blood work to make sure that they are healthy enough to undergo the surgery. This is an important step in ensuring the safety of your pet and the success of the procedure.

Anesthesia and Your Pet
At our hospital, we understand that the thought of your pet undergoing anesthesia can be worrying. Rest assured, we take every necessary precaution to minimize the risks associated with the procedure.
Before administering anesthesia, our veterinary team will conduct a thorough examination of your pet, including listening to their heart and lungs, taking their temperature, and performing pre-anesthetic blood work. Blood tests are crucial in determining a safe and customized anesthesia protocol specifically for your pet. Although the risk of anesthesia can’t be completely eliminated, the tailored protocol helps us ensure the safety of your pet, especially senior patients undergoing surgical procedures.
During the procedure, our team uses heart rate and oxygen saturation monitors to closely monitor your pet’s well-being. We firmly believe that pets should not be discharged from the hospital until they have fully regained consciousness. Our staff closely supervises post-operative patients, providing prompt medical attention if any issues arise.
If you have any concerns or anxieties about anesthesia, please do not hesitate to inform our staff, and we will be happy to address them.
At Stone House Animal Hospital, we believe that every pet deserves to live a life free from pain and discomfort. Our surgical protocols are designed with your pet’s safety and comfort in mind.
Before any surgical procedure, all patients undergo pre-anesthetic blood work to assess their organ function. This information is crucial in determining a customized anesthetic protocol that minimizes the risks involved. Despite the inherent risks of anesthesia, tailored protocols and blood analysis improve its safety, even for senior patients undergoing procedures to enhance their quality of life.
Pain management is of the utmost importance to us. All surgical patients receive injectable pain medication prior to the procedure to ensure they don’t awaken in pain and are sent home with oral pain medication.
