South Kendall Animal Hospital

Veterinary Pet Surgery

South Kendall Animal Hospital offers general and specialized surgical procedures. We understand that surgery can be stressful, but we guarantee safety and comfort for your pet. Our veterinary surgeons and technicians are trained to provide only the highest quality of care. We rigorously monitor anesthesia and cardiovascular functioning at all times. Prior to surgery, we will perform a physical exam and pre-surgical bloodwork to ensure your pet is healthy enough for surgery.

General Surgery

Before surgical procedures you can expect:

  • Comprehensive physical exam
  • Complete pre-anesthetic bloodwork profile
  • Administration of pre-medication to reduce the need for anesthetic drugs
  • Placement of an intravenous catheter for direct vein access and the administration of intravenous fluids

During all anesthetic procedures you can expect:

  • Your pet to be monitored at all times by a highly-trained veterinary technician
  • Vitals to be closely monitored by advanced veterinary monitoring equipment
  • Complete aseptic techniques

After your pet’s procedure you can expect:

  • A trained technician to closely monitor your pet’s vital signs until they are awake and alert
  • Pain to be managed appropriately through constant examination and pain medications

Spay/Neuter Procedure

Spay/neuter procedures promote a longer and healthier life for your pet. These are procedures that provide innumerable benefits! We highly recommend a spay or neuter procedure to reduce sexual instincts, unwanted behaviors, and the risk of infection and disease.

No two animals are alike, which is why each pet deserves a unique, clinical decision tailored to their age, size, breed, and lifestyle. Highly trained in spay and neuter procedures, the veterinary professionals at South Kendall Animal Hospital will provide a safe and comfortable procedure for your pet.

Mass Removals

Please contact us immediately if you discover a mass on your pet, particularly if it appears to be rapidly growing or changing. Masses are commonly found in senior pets, but can appear at any age!

Masses can either be malignant or benign. If diagnosed as malignant, we will surgically remove the mass and recommend necessary treatment. If diagnosed as benign, we also encourage surgical removal to prevent the mass from becoming cancerous or spreading to other areas of the body.

There are additional benefits to having a benign mass removed. Movement may be restricted depending on the location of the tumor or growth. As the mass grows, your pet may have even greater difficulty moving and removal will become more challenging, particularly in areas such as the throat or legs.
