From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care for your pet’s surgical needs.
We understand that surgery can be a source of anxiety and stress for many pet owners. Maybe you worry about whether your pet will be well cared for, or perhaps you have concerns about adequate precautions and monitoring. Whether your pet needs minor surgery or a complex procedure, call us. We welcome your questions and are happy to take the time to address your concerns about the surgery, anesthesia, pain management and post-operative care before scheduling a recommended procedure.
The Langdon Veterinary Clinic staff is highly skilled in performing veterinary surgeries, including spay/neutering, tumor removal, laceration repair, foreign body removal, bladder stone removal, and other soft tissue surgeries. We also have an ongoing relationship with a group of highly trained and experienced veterinary surgeons who perform complex soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries as well as TPLO (tibial plateau leveling osteotomy). These surgeries are normally performed from our sister clinic, the Strathmore Veterinary Clinic, located twenty minutes east of Langdon, in Strathmore, Alberta.
We make every effort to ensure that your pet receives the very best care. Our focus on patient safety, pain management, and employing current surgical practices is designed to exceed your expectations and put your concerns to rest. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals monitors your pet before, during, and after surgery and take exceptional care to ensure a safe and complete recovery for your pet. This includes placing your pet on intravenous (IV) fluids to maintain blood pressure and to support good liver and kidney function. Constant monitoring of your pet gives us even more assurance of safety. Machines tell us blood pressure, tissue oxygen percentage, heart rate, and carbon dioxide levels.
When your pet is ready to go home, we carefully explain your pet’s postoperative care and medication instructions. If any questions arise after your pet returns home or at any other time during the postoperative period, call us. We welcome your questions and will do all we can to help your pet fully recover. Help is only a phone call away.
