When your pet needs surgery, you need to find a practice that can trust. From routine procedures, to more advanced operations, your pet may need to undergo surgery for any number of reasons. Our staff at Lake Forest Animal Clinic is trained to give your pet the care and compassion they need.

You can expect our staff's complete attention when your pet is in the surgical room. Veterinary surgery often requires multiple professionals working together. We make sure your pet's temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, heart rhythm, oxygen saturation, IV fluids, and anesthesia are constantly monitored. Our team works together to communicate any potential anomalies that may compromise the efficacy of the surgery. We've found this strategy to be the best possible way to ensure favorable outcomes.

Before the surgery, we use the conclusions from the pre-surgery exam and the accompanying lab work to determine which methods to use during the operation. After the surgery, we design pain management strategies specific to your pet. It's our goal to give you all the information needed to properly care for your pet, when you bring them home. Taking an all-around approach to surgical care is the best path to achieving better pet health. We want our clients to feel as empowered as we do to help.

We can answer any questions you may have about the procedure, and home care. We want you to be comfortable with the care that your pet is receiving while here at Lake Forest Animal Clinic.
