General Surgery

The New England Animal Medical Center Surgery Department works as a team with other hospital departments to provide the best possible care for your pet. We maintain a sophisticated inventory of surgical equipment and supplies as well as the most modern anesthetic equipment and anesthetic monitoring equipment available. Even more important is our staff and technicians who have trained extensively in their field. The list below includes some, but not all, of the procedures we are able to perform.

Our sterile operating rooms are “state of the art” and include advanced patient monitoring systems, surgical lasers, sophisticated gas anesthesia machines, high speed drills for orthopedic surgery, and a host of other modern surgical devices. Since we are a “24/7” facility there are veterinarians and technicians around the clock monitoring your pet after surgery.
