Specialist Surgery

Our New England Animal Medical Center veterinarians are skilled in performing a wide variety of soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. Patient safety and comfort are our primary concerns and our veterinary team has extensive training in local, regional, and general anesthesia to insure that your pet will have no pain during surgery and minimal discomfort in the post-operative period. In addition we may prescribe oral pain medications (analgesics) when indicated for home use following surgical procedures.

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.
