The thought of your pet needing surgery may create understandable anxiety -- but here at Solomons Veterinary Medical Center, our trained veterinarians can put many of your fears to rest with our blend of expertise, experience and compassionate care. We employ state-of-the-art diagnostics, answer owners' questions, and apply all of our considerable skills toward giving your pet a successful surgery and swift recovery.
Some surgeries are emergency situations, requiring our animal hospital to work quickly but accurately to assess the situation and provide potentially lifesaving care. We can seal lacerations, mass removals, cancer surgery, stop bleeding, repair damaged internal organs or perform an emergency C-section in response to dystocia (difficult labor).
Pet surgeries in Solomons are considered routine wellness or cosmetic procedures instead of responses to urgent or emergency situations. Spay/neuter surgery is a prime example. Spaying or neutering your pet at a young age can eliminate heat-induced aggression (which may lead to fights and injuries) and dramatically reduce your pet's cancer risk while also preventing unwanted litters. Tail docking is typically performed on certain breeds. (We will advise you when a procedure is not considered medically necessary so you can make an informed decision.)
If your pet in Solomons, Prince Frederick, Broomes Island, Port Republic, St. Leonard, St. Mary's, Dowell, Lusby, or California is in need of surgical care, you can rest assured that he's in good hands at Solomons Veterinary Medical Center. Our skilled veterinarians are highly experienced in everything from routine wellness procedures to emergency pet surgery. We monitor your pet closely through every moment of the procedure, administering anesthesia with the greatest care to ensure his safety. Following the procedure, our animal hospital will provide you with everything you need to know about post-operative wound care, pain management and follow-up appointments for your beloved companion.
