Pet Surgery Services & Pet Surgeon in Danville, VA
At Danville Family Vet, we offer a wide range of veterinary surgery services, including orthopedic surgery and soft tissue surgeries for animals. Our experienced veterinarians provide comprehensive care, from routine spay and neuter procedures to complex surgeries such as exploratory laparotomies and fracture repairs.
One of the most common orthopedic surgeries we offer is TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy) for the treatment of cranial cruciate ligament rupture, also known as ACL surgery for dogs. In addition, we offer patella luxation surgery, femoral head ostectomy (FHO), fracture repair, and more.
To further enhance our surgical services, we partner with Dr. Jennifer Hoch of Mobile Veterinary Surgical Services. Dr. Hoch is a traveling surgical specialist with a Board certification from the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. She provides cost-effective and convenient advanced surgeries for our patients in Central North Carolina and Virginia. Dr. Hoch’s primary procedure is TPLO (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy), which is used in the treatment of Cranial Cruciate Ligament Rupture (ACL surgery for dogs).
Patient safety and comfort are our top priorities. We use state-of-the-art equipment and protocols, including warming blankets to maintain body temperature, low-stress handling techniques, anti-anxiety medication, and multi-modal pain control to minimize discomfort. During anesthesia, we monitor your pet’s blood oxygen concentration, blood pressure, heart rate, EKG rhythms, temperature, and respiration rate to ensure their safety.
At Danville Family Vet, we understand that pet surgery can be stressful for owners as well. That’s why we’re committed to walking you through the entire process and answering any questions you may have. We’re always just a phone call away.
After your pet’s surgery, we provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. We recommend restricting strenuous activity for a week and monitoring the incision for swelling, redness, or drainage. Please call us immediately if you notice any of these signs. We’ll schedule a follow-up appointment to remove sutures and check the incision in 10-14 days, at no charge.
Feeding your pet after surgery is important, but we recommend waiting at least an hour before offering food or water to avoid nausea. Start with small amounts and gradually increase over 24 hours. Your pet may require extra TLC for 2-3 days after the surgery, so monitor them closely and protect them from getting wet or chilled.
