East Poplarville Veterinary Clinic performs a variety of soft tissue and orthopedic procedures using the most advanced surgical techniques and state of the art technology. Our surgical services and facilities offer an experienced veterinarian and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient procedures for your pet.
Since every pet is unique, each patient is carefully screened prior to surgery using pre-operative blood profiles. These are performed using in-house diagnostics, taking into account your pet’s species, breed, age, and health to create an anesthetic protocol best suited for your pet’s needs. Pre-anesthetic drugs are administered to pets prior to surgery to keep pets calm and limit the amount of anesthesia required.
Rest assured that your pet’s vital signs will be monitored during all stages of surgery so that we can watch for early recognition and correction of any problems. We also realize that pain management is important to ensure a faster and better recovery, therefore pre and post-operative pain medication will be administered and tailored to your pet’s specific needs.
Soft tissue surgeries involve the body’s tissue, organs, and skin. The surgeries we commonly perform include the following:
- Biopsy or excision of abnormal growths
