Many people have a reflexive fear of the word "surgery" -- not only in reference to their own needs, but also when thinking about surgery for their beloved pets, but in the hands of a skilled, experienced San Antonio veterinarian like Dr. Woolley or Dr. Stewart here at Family Pet Hospital of Stone Oak, you can rest assured that your pet will receive the highest standards of care and safety throughout their surgical procedure. From routine and specialized surgeries to emergency intervention, you can always count on our team to treat your pet like one of our own.
Why might your pet need surgery? Veterinary surgery may be advisable or necessary in a variety of circumstances, not all of them life-or-death in nature. At Family Pet Hospital of Stone Oak, our veterinarians can perform a wide range of operations, including:
Our hospital takes pride in knowing that you will be as informed as possible during the process of your pets’ procedures. Prior to surgery, we ask that all dogs and cats go without food after 10pm the night before surgery and they can have water up until the morning of surgery. When you arrive, our knowledgeable staff will walk you through the anesthetic process and go over all necessary forms needed for surgery. During the day your pet will rest comfortably in one of our kennels with a fleece blanket to rest on. Once your pet is anesthetized you can rest assured your pets best interest is in mind. We monitor all anesthetized dogs and cats with surgical monitors that keep track of blood pressure, temperature, oxygen levels, heart rate and rhythm and all pets have pre-operative ECGs and bloodwork as well. Once your pet is awake we will notify you of how your pets procedure went and discuss any aftercare instructions needed or when sutures may need to be removed.
Now that you have a better idea of the range of surgical services and the level of care provided here at Family Pet Hospital of Stone Oak, your search for a San Antonio veterinarian for your pet's surgical needs is over. Call our clinic at (210) 495-2722 to learn more and schedule any procedures or exams your pet may require!
Dr. Woolley has always gone above and beyond for the care of our family's pets for several years.
