Surgery services

At Fishtown Animal Hospital, we offer cutting-edge, affordable outpatient surgical services – including spay/neuter surgery, gastric and intestinal foreign body removal, intestinal tumor removal, exploratory and abdominal mass removal, and penetrating and wound surgery.

We know how stressful it can be when your pet undergoes surgery. Our team is here to help make the process less daunting.

Compassionate surgical care

Our highest priority is ensuring the complete comfort and safety of your pet, and providing you with the peace of mind in knowing your pet is being taken care of.

What to expect From Surgery

We strongly believe in the importance of appropriate pain management to keep all of our patients as comfortable and stress free as possible before, during, and after surgery, and our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to fully monitor your pet throughout their visit.

Each surgical visit at Fishtown Animal Hospital includes:

  • Pre-anesthetic physical examination
  • Individualized general anesthetic plan based on age, body type, and breed
  • Vital sign monitoring by professional care team members
  • Pre- and post-operative pain medication to ensure that our patients remain comfortable both during and after the procedure
  • Post-op visit

Our entire staff is well-trained to monitor anesthesia and care for your pet throughout his or her stay until they are fully recovered and discharged. To ensure that anesthesia is safe for your pet, we also require all bloodwork to be completed within one month of any surgical procedure.
