Veterinary Surgery in Edgewater

When your pet needs surgical care, we understand there’s stress involved for both you and your companion. At Broadway Animal Hospital in Edgewater, your pet’s comfort and safety are our top priorities during veterinary surgery. We take every step necessary to ensure their health and wellbeing is looked after before, during, and after the procedure, so you can rest easy.

Our Surgical Skillset

The veterinary team at Broadway is a skilled group of experts, and there’s little we can’t handle. Soft tissue surgeries are all completed in house, and we even have a qualified surgeon who comes into the hospital for orthopedic surgeries, so you and your pet can stay in the comfort of our clinic for specialty cat or dog surgery.

Surgeries we offer include:

Soft Tissue:

  • Spay and neuter
  • Mass removals
  • Cystotomy
  • Exploratory surgery
  • Foreign body removal
  • Laceration repairs
  • ... and more!

Orthopedic:

(in-house by traveling surgeon or referred out on case-by-case basis)

  • CCL repairs
  • Patella luxation
  • Fracture repair
  • Corrective joint surgeries

Before every procedure, we perform a full physical exam as well as pre-anesthetic bloodwork to ensure your companion is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia. To maximize their level of comfort, we also administer pain medication before the surgery so your pet awakens with minimal or no discomfort. Our pain management protocols are specifically designed for your pet, so you can rest assured their dosage is the perfect amount for them.

Tips and Info for Owners

Make sure your pet does not eat anything after midnight before the day of surgery. Feed them their dinner, but no midnight snacks! However, they may have water up until their appointment.

It’s essential as well that you bring your pet in early on the day of surgery (the exact time will be discussed when the date is set). Even if a surgery is scheduled for the afternoon, it’s important we get all the necessary bloodwork, exams, and preparation finished well ahead of time to stay on schedule.

After your pet is released, we’ll discuss at-home care and send you home with instructions and pain medication to help with discomfort.
