Veterinary Surgery

At Stoney Pointe Pet Hospital we keep pets healthy through a number of surgical procedures, always following strict surgical protocols.

For each surgery, we dedicate a surgical nurse who will be responsible for administering anesthesia and monitoring your pet with electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided. 

Our top priority following surgery is post-operative monitoring and pain management. Your vet will also give you detailed at-home care instructions.

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 Stoney Pointe Pet Hospital, we perform medical and emergency surgeries to help treat disease and conditions in pets or to repair injuries sustained through trauma.

Our vets in Rochester 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. 

  • C-Sections

    During Caesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.

    C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally. 

  • Wounds

    Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.

    It's imperative that these wounds 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.

    Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) - This surgery is used when a dog has torn their cranial Cruciate ligament, it does not recreate or repair the ligament itself, but rather change the dynamics of the knee so that the cranial cruciate ligament is no longer necessary for stabilizing the joint.

    If your dog or cat is suffering from a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care, your vet will refer your dog or cat to a vet surgeon near Rochester.

  • 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 Rochester, 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 discuss the procedure, perform a full physical exam of your pet, and complete all necessary blood tests for the vet to review in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are always completed in our dedicated surgical suite. This sterile room prevents infections and cross-contamination.

Surgical attire. Our staff wear 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.
