When your pet needs surgery, a veterinary practice that can administer both gentle and effective treatment to your beloved companion is
necessary. From routine procedures to more advanced operations, our surgical team is trained to give your pet the best care they need to successfully undergo any operation.
Our team strives to streamline all necessary lab work and pre-surgical exams to make the process safe and easy. Your pet will have a specifically tailored pain management strategy and we stay in touch with you to catch any problems before they start. It is our goal to have clients feel comfortable, informed, and supported before, during, and after any surgical procedure.
Higgins' state-of-the art surgical suite is large, bright and efficient with every patient being monitored closely at all times. Our highly-skilled veterinarians and technicians perform each surgery methodically and safely, making sure your pet is comfortable and safe. During a procedure, if we need further discussion or permission from you, the veterinarian will contact you immediately before going forward. When surgery is finished, you will be informed right away that your pet is awake and doing well.
Please let us know if you have any questions about a procedure your pet may need. We want to alleviate your concerns about anything from the type of anesthesia to the length of recovery. Wheeling Animal Hospital gives you all the information you need to know so you can be involved and prepared in your pet's health and well-being.
