At Mono Way Veterinary Hospital our vets are able to perform a variety of surgical procedures to help cats, dogs, and other large and exotic animals at our Sonora hospital, using stringent surgical protocols.
In all the surgeries we perform an experienced nurse will supply an anesthetic, and continuously monitor your companion utilizing state-of-the-art electronic patient monitoring equipment. Your pet will also be provided with pain management throughout the procedure.
Our top priorities after your pet's surgery are pain management and post-operative monitoring. Your vet will also give you detailed instructions on how to care for your companion after you take them home.
What to Expect from Surgery
Our team will always keep you completely informed regarding why we are recommending surgery and about any post-operative care your animal will require at home. At our Sonora animal hospital we implement stringent surgical protocols.
At Mono Way Veterinary Hospital, our veterinary team conducts emergency and medical surgeries to help treat conditions and diseases in animals or to correct injuries that were sustained due to trauma.
Our Sonora vets perform the following elective and non-elective surgeries on a routine basis:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We offer soft tissue surgical procedures for pets suffering from throat, nose, and ear disorders.
We can also conduct these procedures for hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin disorders.
- Spaying & Neutering
Spaying and neutering your cat or dog can help prevent the unwanted birth of puppy or kitten litters as well as undesirable behaviours such as roaming, howling, scooting and territory marking. They can even protect your pet from certain cancers.
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we surgically sterilize them to prevent disease and provide them with an extended life expectancy.
When performing Caesarean sections, we surgically remove kittens or puppies from their mother's uterus.
We generally perform C-sections when the mother is unable to give birth naturally.
- Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA)
Our vets can perform this surgical procedure to help treat CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) ruptures in a dog's knee. The process involves cutting the top of a dog's shinbone and moving it forward, our vets then stabilize it in its corrected position.
- Orthopaedic Surgery
Orthopaedic surgeries help mend injuries and treat diseases of the bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures in your pet. We have an on-site vet that is specialised to be a cat and dog orthopaedic surgeon.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians offer a range of dental surgeries for dogs and cats. Some of these surgeries include tooth extractions, gum disease treatment, jaw fracture repairs and more.
The Surgery Process
We know it can be frightening for both you and your pet when you have to bring your companion in for surgery. We want you to know that we only recommend surgery when it is in the best interests of your animal friend.
Our vets will make sure that you completely understand the reasons why we are recommending surgery for your pet, and that you are comfortable moving forward with the procedure.
If your pet needs advanced care, our vets will refer your cat or dog to a veterinary surgeon near Sonora or a veterinary surgical specialist, and work closely with your vet surgeon to make sure that your pet gets the best care possible.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. Our veterinary staff will confirm the specifics of the procedure, conduct a physical examination of your pet, and make sure that all the blood tests have been completed and reviewed by your vet in order to determine if your companion faces any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. All of our surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical room. This suite is always kept completely sterile to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
Surgical attire. Our team wears disposable masks and caps the entire time that they are in the surgical suite. Those involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully clean, sterilize and wrap our surgical equipment and instruments before every surgery.
