Veterinarian in Wellington, CO
At Wellington Veterinary Hospital, our veterinary team takes every measure to ensure that they receive the best possible care during their surgery.
Our veterinary team goes to great lengths to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care. Before surgery, we perform a physical check and pre-anesthetic tests, monitor your pet during surgery, and administer pain medication as needed to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
We place a high priority on ensuring the safety of our patients throughout surgery and other medical treatments. Our veterinarians and veterinary technicians are experienced in administering anesthesia and closely monitoring patients to guarantee their safety and comfort. Anesthesia and patient monitoring differ significantly from one clinic to the next. You may trust that we employ the most up-to-date and effective protocols. Depending on the surgery, we employ several types of anesthetic. Some procedures necessitate general anesthesia, while others simply necessitate local anesthetic. We also keep a tight eye on every procedure, no matter how routine or advanced it is.
Some of the many surgeries routinely performed in our state of the art surgical suite include:
- General Surgery
- Oral Surgery
- Orthopedic Procedures
- Ophthalmic Surgery
- Laparoscopic Procedures
- Emergency surgeries
- Spay/Neuter surgeries
Laparoscopic surgery, also known as minimally invasive surgery, involves the use of a tube with a tiny light and camera mounted on the end and the necessary surgical tools, which are inserted into one or more small incisions to perform the procedure. Laparoscopic surgeries allow the surgeon to visualize the surgical field and therefore cause less trauma to the surrounding tissues. This, in turn, means the patient will heal more quickly and experience less discomfort during their recovery.
Benefits of Laparoscopy
There are a number of benefits to laparoscopic surgery including:
- Smaller incisions at the surgical site
- Better visualization of the organs
- Less painful than the traditional approach
- Faster recovery time
