Surgical Services for Pets in Queens and Woodside
At Queens Animal Hospital, our qualified veterinarians and team offer a wide range of surgeries for cats and dogs in Woodside, using stringent surgical protocols.
During each surgery, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment. There will also be pain management.
Post-operative monitoring and pain management are always our priorities following surgery. Your veterinarian will also provide thorough instructions for at-home care.
If your pet requires advanced surgical care, we also offer the services of a board certified veterinary surgeon in-house.
Orthopedic & Specialty Surgeries by a Board Certified Specialist
We are proud to offer the services of a board-certified veterinary surgeon who travels to our location to provide orthopedic and specialty surgeries in our state-of-the-art surgical suite.
We perform medical and emergency surgeries at Queens Animal Hospital to help treat diseases and conditions in pets, as well as to repair injuries caused by trauma.
Our Queens vets routinely perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries:
Soft Tissue Surgery
For pets suffering from ear, nose, and throat disorders, we offer soft tissue surgical procedures.
These procedures are also available for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
Orthopedic surgery treats injuries and diseases of your pet's bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures. If your dog or cat has a condition or injury that necessitates advanced specialized care, your vet will refer your pet to a veterinarian near Queens.
Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
- Dental Surgery
During Cesarean sections, we surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus.
C-sections are typically performed when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness, or other symptoms in or around their eyes, they may need ocular surgery.
Common ocular procedures for cats and dogs include eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, exenteration of the orbit, and cherry eye surgery.
If your cat or dog requires surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Queens and will work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
Cats and dogs can develop masses associated with the skin. Masses can also grow inside a body cavity and can be serious or life-threatening.
Mass removal surgery is a fairly common procedure for both cats and dogs.
Sometimes, foreign objects are ingested or can get stuck inside a cat's or dog's body.
Whether your pet has eaten an object they shouldn't have or an accident has left them injured, we can perform foreign body surgery to remove it.
Pet surgery may necessitate the use of specialized skills or equipment in some cases. If this is the case with your animal, your veterinarian will refer you to a cat or dog surgeon near Queens and collaborate with your veterinary surgeon to ensure that your dog or cat receives the best care possible.
Wounds occur when living tissue has been cut, broken, burnt, torn, or otherwise damaged.
These wounds must be cleaned, disinfected, and appropriately cared for by a qualified veterinarian as soon as possible.
The Surgery Process
We understand that the prospect of bringing your animal in for surgery can be frightening. Please be assured that we recommend surgery only when it is in the best interests of your furry companion.
We will make certain that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery and that you are confident in your decision to proceed.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the procedure details, conduct a physical examination of the patient, and ensure that blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the veterinarian to determine if your pet is at risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite. This room is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times when they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment before every surgery.
