When a veterinarian in Castle Rock recommends a surgical procedure, you want to feel comfortable with the process and understand the potential concerns and risks associated with the situation. At our clinic, we provide the information you need before a pet surgery to keep your pet as healthy and happy as possible. Our team offers details about potential risks, the expected results of the procedure and recovery from the procedure.

Removal of growths or masses, such as benign and malignant cancer
Removing an eye when necessary
Gastropexies, which reduces certain gastro-intestinal health concerns
Removal of the spleen

Amputations after an injury, infection or cancer growth

Our team handles most surgical procedures for your pets. We take measures to protect an animal from severe health concerns by addressing problems early and keeping owners educated about the possible problems that may arise as an animal ages.
During a surgical treatment, our team monitors an animal's vitals using the most up-to-date technology and tools. We eliminate pain with appropriate medications before, during and after the procedure. Our team watches your pets during the procedure to limit the risk of negative reactions to any medications or treatments. We also monitor the animal after he or she comes out of surgery and recovers from anesthesia. Dr. Jay offers surgical treatments during weekdays and on Saturdays, so you can plan the procedure during a convenient time.
Before the procedure, we recommend an initial consultation to evaluate the needs of your pets. Notify our team at least 24 hours in advance if you give an animal any medication. As a general rule, pets should not eat any food after 10:00 PM the night before the surgery. You can put out water throughout the night and early morning.
We take blood before surgery for any pets over 6 years old and we recommend blood work for all pets. If a procedure requires medical monitoring during initial recovery, then we may keep your pet at our clinic during the first days of recovery.
