Animal Hospital of North Asheville provides both orthopedic and soft tissue surgery for cats and dogs.
We understand that it can be frightening to learn that your pet needs surgery. Please rest assured that the recommendation of surgery is made with the best interest of your pet in mind.
We will ensure that you understand why surgery is recommended, and are comfortable making the decision to go ahead.
Pre-surgical assessments. Our veterinary team will verify the specifics of the procedure, examine the patient and ensure blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the vet in order to determine if your pet is at risk for any anaesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeries are performed in a room used only for sterile surgical procedures as a precaution to prevent infections and cross-contamination
Surgical attire. Our staff will wear disposable caps and masks at all times in the surgical suite. Those directly involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. All of our surgical instruments and equipment are carefully cleaned, sterilized, and wrapped prior to each procedure in order to prevent infections.
