We know how stressful it can be to hear that your pet needs surgery. At Clear Creek Animal Hospital, we strive to make the process as gentle as possible to reduce anxiety for you and your beloved pet. We take the time to walk you through the entire procedure, and answer all your questions so you understand the details and know what to expect.

- Spays and neuters
- Tumor/lump removals
In addition, Clear Creek also offers surgical care for complex medical conditions such as:
- Wound repair
- Laryngeal paralysis
- Tracheal collapse
What to Expect
Pre-Surgery. It’s important to us that you and your pet are relaxed and ready on surgery day. We conduct a comprehensive physical exam and bloodwork screen beforehand to prep for the procedure and use of anesthesia, and we also give your pet a pre-operative sedative for relaxation purposes.
During Surgery. Operations take place in a dedicated sterile space to prevent infection or cross-contamination. Warm IV fluids are administered through an intravenous catheter and we closely monitor your pet’s vital statistics (heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels) throughout the procedure.
Post-Surgery. After the surgery is over, your pet will lay under a warming blanket until their body temperature rises back to normal. We provide you with detailed post-op instructions and guidelines but you can call us at any time if you have questions concerning your pet’s recovery or pain medications.
