Pet Surgery in Hoboken

Pet Surgery

Many pets will need to undergo surgery at some point in their lives, whether it’s a routine spay/neuter procedure, tooth extraction, tumor removal, or something more complex. Here at Dr. Michael Tuder & Associates, we can perform a wide range of soft tissue surgeries at our Jersey City, Hoboken, and Bayonne locations.

Our state-of-the-art surgical suites feature the most updated anesthetic and pain management protocols, allowing your pet to be as comfortable and safe as possible. They also include advanced surgical monitoring equipment so that every patient’s vital signs can be monitored before, during, and after surgery. We are pleased to also use a laser for many procedures, which results in less pain, less bleeding, and less swelling.

Pre-Surgery Expectations

Regardless of the reason for your pet’s surgery, we know you may have questions and concerns. We’ll be happy to address them all before receiving your pet. We don’t just want your pet to be comfortable during surgery; we want YOU to be comfortable, too, and to have peace of mind.

Before your pet’s surgery, we’ll perform an exam and pre-anesthetic blood work to be sure they’re healthy enough for anesthesia. We’ll also place an IV catheter for anesthesia, medication, and/or fluid therapy. Next, we’ll begin administering anesthesia and prep your pet for surgery, which typically includes clipping the fur at the incision or laser site. When your pet is fully prepped and sedated, we proceed with the surgery.

Post-Surgical Expectations

Once your pet’s surgery is complete, we’ll gradually reduce the anesthesia until your pet is fully awake. Your pet will be moved to our recovery area, where one of our technicians will continue to monitor them. We will then contact you to let you know that your four-legged friend is ready to return home to you. Upon your arrival, we’ll provide you with discharge instructions and pain medications.

Please feel free to let us know of any questions you have about your pet’s recovery, either upon pickup or while your pet is recovering from home. We want your pet to return to bird watching or ball chasing, just as much as you do!
