About Your Pet’s Surgery

We have a fully furnished surgical suite with heated tables and the latest in technological surgical equipment. During surgery, a licensed technician will carefully monitor and record your pet’s vital signs and will remain in constant communication with the doctor. After the procedure, we’ll take your pet to our separate recovery room for observation throughout recovery.


When you’re ready to take your pet home, we’ll provide you with a post-surgical plan with everything you need to continue your pet’s successful post-op recovery. Recovering from surgery can take several weeks, so it’s important to follow all instructions for rehabilitation. We’re here and happy to help. Your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priorities before, during and after any pet surgery here in Carthage.

Pet Laser Surgery

We are pleased to offer laser surgery as a safe option for pet surgeries in Carthage. In many procedures, the laser can replace the scalpel, providing an alternative to traditional surgery and leading to a quicker recovery for your pet. Using a laser for surgery tends to cause less tissue trauma and less bleeding during the procedure, which can cut both surgical time and post-surgical pain. If you would like more information regarding laser surgery, or if you would like to schedule a pet surgery in Carthage, let us know. We’ll be happy to help.
