At Miller Clark Animal Hospital in Mamaroneck, our vets perform a number of veterinary surgical procedures, including orthopedic, soft tissue, spay & neuter procedures, and more.
We offer a number of veterinary surgical procedures for dogs and cats at our Mamaroneck animal hospital, using best-in-practice surgical techniques and stringent surgical protocols.
During each surgery, anesthesia is administered by a dedicated nurse and your pet is continuously monitored using electronic patient monitoring equipment. We will also provide pain management.
Following surgery, we will prioritize post-operative monitoring and pain management. Your vet will also provide detailed instructions for at-home care.
Veterinary Surgical Procedures
Our vets at Miller Clark Animal Hospital routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets experiencing disorders in the ear, nose, and throat, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for urogenital, hepatic, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, skin and oncological disorders.
If your pet is experiencing redness, pain, or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may require ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for dogs and cats include cataract surgery, tumor removal, entropion surgery, ectropion surgery, cherry eye surgery, and exenteration of the orbit.
- Mass Removal
Masses associated with the skin can develop in cats and dogs. These masses may also grow inside a body cavity and can become serious or life-threatening.
Surgery to remove a mass is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
- Foreign Body
Occasionally, a cat or dog may ingest a foreign object, which can get stuck in their body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or they've acquired an injury in an accident, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
If living tissue is cut, burnt, broken, torn or otherwise damaged, wounds can occur.
It's imperative that wounds are professionally cleaned, disinfected and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Our vets perform orthopedic surgeries to correct diseases and injuries of your pet's joints, ligaments, bones, tendons and other skeletal structures.
- Spaying & Neutering
When our vets spay or neuter a dog or cat, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians offer dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to jaw fracture repairs and treatment for gum disease.
The Surgery Process
We understand that finding out your pet needs surgery can be intimidating - and concerning. We recommend surgery only when it is in the best interest of your furry friend.
We'll ensure you understand why surgery is recommendedy and that you are comfortable with the treatment plan.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the details of the procedure, complete a physical examination of your pet, and make sure blood tests have been performed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are completed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. At all times when they are in the surgical suite, our staff wear disposable caps and masks. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. Prior to every surgery, we carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment.
