At West Suburban Veterinary Associates, P.C., we care for every pet as if he or she were our very own. We use the most advanced surgical techniques and the best medical equipment in order to provide a safe and comfortable surgical experience. Our veterinarians have many years experience performing a wide variety of surgical procedures, from routine soft-tissue surgeries, to more complicated procedures such as splenic mass removal, gastric foreign bodies and intestinal obstruction to the latest orthopedic procedures, including ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) repairs of the knee.
During surgery, your pet is sedated using highly advanced anesthetic techniques. The medical team uses a combination of analgesics to obtain the safest and most comfortable sedation for your pet. Prior to the gas anesthetic, your pet will be relieved of any anxiety with pre-anesthetic sedation. We realize that your pet may be nervous, so we do provide snuggles and comfort as well.
While in surgery, your pet’s vital signs are monitored using superior equipment much like humans. Our technicians have extensive training in anesthesia monitoring including Doppler blood pressure monitors, ECG, temperature, Co2 to name just a few. Your pets safety is our number one goal, so we use only the best and safest anesthesia protocols.
Spaying and Neutering
Spay-neuter is a procedure that will benefit you as well as your pet. This surgery allows your pet to live a longer and healthier life. Meanwhile, you will experience less troubles associated with behavior, pregnancy and heat cycles. We are highly experienced to perform spay- neuter procedures, and we ensure your pet is safe and comfortable from beginning to end.
WSVA also performs laparoscopic spay and neutering, minimal invasive surgery, which greatly reduces pet recovery time.
At West Suburban Veterinary Associates, P.C., we offer your pet the most advanced surgical techniques and the latest surgical equipment. Surgery using a laser results in less pain, less bleeding and less swelling. It also reduces the risk of infection and discomfort following surgery. It all adds up to better surgical care and more comfort for your pet.
Post Surgery Boarding Facilities
West Suburban Veterinary Associates, P.C., maintains a medical boarding ward where your pet can stay comfortably following surgery. We maintain separate areas for dogs and cats, and all pets receive soft and clean bedding while staying with us. One of our certified veterinary technicians is a dedicated patient care technician for your pet. He or she monitors our surgical patients before and after surgery and throughout their stay so you have one point of contact.
