College Village Animal Clinic offers a team of highly qualified technicians and surgeons who perform routine to advanced surgical procedures. Our staff is highly skilled in performing veterinary surgeries and will make every effort to ensure that your pet receives the very best care. Our focus on patient safety, pain management, and employing the most current surgical practices is designed to exceed your expectations and put your concerns to rest. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals will monitor your pet before, during, and after surgery and will take exceptional care to ensure a safe and complete recovery for your pet. We will also address any questions or concerns you may have about surgery, including concerns about anesthesia, pain management, or postoperative care.

Surgical services and facilities include:

  • Fully trained veterinary and technical staff
  • Fully equipped and dedicated surgical suite
  • Patient warming system for greater comfort
  • ECG
  • Respiratory and blood pressure monitoring
  • Observable recovery in a centrally located area

All patients are carefully screened for anesthetic safety and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. At CVAC, anesthetic safety and pain management is not optional, rather an important part of every surgical intervention. Each surgical patient receives pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative pain medication based on the individual patient and surgical procedure performed. In fact, elective surgeries such as spays and neuters are performed with the same care and dedication as more complex surgeries.

The night before your pet’s surgery we ask that you do not feed your pet after 9:00pm (water is ok). On the morning of the procedure you will be asked to drop your pet off between 7:30am and 8:00am. A technician will be there to check you in and will review the procedure at that time. You can also ask any questions that you may have at that time. At check-in you will be asked what time you would like to pick your pet up in the afternoon. We will call you when your pet’s procedure is completed and they are in recovery and confirm the pick-up appointment at that time. When your pet is ready to go home, we will review your 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 recover fully.
