Surgery

Whether your pet needs a routine procedure or has a critical illness, Harlingen Veterinary Clinic is committed to the highest standards of care for each surgical patient. Before undergoing anesthesia, your pet is thoroughly examined and pre-anesthetic blood work is performed to ensure patient safety. While your pet is under anesthesia, a technician constantly monitors heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, and blood oxygen levels. Once the procedure is completed, a technician monitors the patient until fully recovered from the anesthesia. For your pet’s comfort and to support post-operative recovery, a comprehensive pain management protocol is implemented for every surgical patient. Visit our Holistic Medicine & Acupuncture page for information about alternative pain management options.

Laser Surgery for Your Pet

Harlingen offers the latest in surgical technology, including state-of-the-art laser surgery. The benefits of veterinary laser surgery include:

  • Less bleeding—The laser seals small blood vessels, resulting in a drastic reduction in bleeding compared to use of a conventional scalpel.
  • Reduced pain—The laser beam seals nerve endings for less swelling and pain, giving patients a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.
  • Minimized risk of infection—The laser beam efficiently kills bacteria, producing a sterilizing effect.
  • Rapid recovery time—Less bleeding, pain, and infection lead to less stress and improved recovery time for patients.

Laser surgery is used quite often for mass removals, and ear, eyelid, and oral surgical procedures

Benefits of Spaying and Neutering Pets

  • Neutering your pet eliminates the risk of testicular cancer and other testicular diseases.
  • Urine marking is greatly reduced, if not eliminated completely, especially if the animal is neutered before sexual maturity.
  • Spaying an animal before her first heat cycle provides significant protection against mammary cancer.
  • Spaying eliminates life-threatening uterine infections, as well as uterine and ovarian cancer.
  • A male animal’s urge to wander in search of a female in heat is the single leading cause of animals being killed by vehicles. Neutered pets do not have the hormones that fuel the urge to wander, so they are far less likely to be injured by automobiles.
  • Each year, millions of homeless dogs and cats are killed in shelters in virtually every city in the country. Spaying or neutering your pet prevents unwanted litters and helps reduce the homeless pet population.
