AM/PM Animal Hospital

Veterinary Pet Surgery in Austin, TX

Surgery: the word can sound scary, but it can save lives, or dramatically improve your friend's quality and length of life. From spays and neuter surgeries, which can prevent unwanted litters and the occurrence of certain reproductive cancers, to general surgery, which may treat conditions and halt the spread of disease, surgical procedures are planned and carried out with the utmost care. Once your pet is on the other side of surgery, pain management is a priority not only for the comfort he/she deserves, but also helps with healing process.

General Surgery

Our veterinary staff has extensive experience in general surgical procedures. Our combined knowledge and years of experience allows us to perform the most effective and safe surgeries possible.

Before surgery, we will have a pre-operative appointment to determine if your pet is healthy enough to undergo the procedure, and to discuss details of the surgery with you. We understand that when your dear pet is about to have a surgical procedure, emotions can run high. Before, during, and after the operation, we will make sure to listen to your concerns, offer advice, and provide materials and information so you can feel prepared and knowledgeable.

Here are a few common surgical procedures which we are equipped to perform in our surgical suite:

  • Spay and Neuter
  • Cystotomy Procedure
  • Foreign Body Removal
  • Mass Removal

Spay/Neuter Procedure

AM/PM Animal Hospital - Spay & Neuter Surgery

At AM/PM Animal Hospital, we always recommend spay/neuter procedure for companion animals. Spaying refers to the removal of the ovaries and uterus in female animals. Once a dog or cat is spayed, they will no longer have heat periods, and will not be able to become pregnant. Being responsible for an expecting pet is an expensive and stressful process, especially if unplanned!

Neutering refers to the removal of the testes of male animals. Neutered males tend to display less aggressive behaviors and have a lessened desire to roam in search of a mate. They will also be less likely to mark their territory with their urine, especially if the procedure is performed before they form the habit. While surgery can be scary, these routine procedures bring a number of health benefits to your pet.

Some benefits to spaying/neutering include:

  • Helps prevent cancers such as mammary, ovarian, and uterine tumors in females, and testicular and prostate cancers in males
  • Reduces unwanted behavioral problems such as aggression, territorial marking, and roaming
  • Pets who have been spayed or neutered tend to have longer lifespans
  • Helps combat the issue of pet overpopulation & over crowding of animal shelters from unplanned litters

Our doctors take your pet's safety and comfort very seriously. For that reason, all pets receive pre-surgical bloodwork before their procedure to ensure they are healthy enough to undergo surgery. During the procedure your pet receives IV fluids, balanced anesthesia, and close monitoring during and after the procedure. The doctor will call you after to update you on how everything went and answer any and all questions you might have. Upon pick up, detailed discharge instructions will be provided to you with details on pain medications and how to care for your pet at home.
