Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each of us has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

 Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us to uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your pet comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we’ll be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions on your mind will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery. We want you to feel comfortable leaving your cherished companion in our care.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated care team will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

Minimal Invasive Laparscopic Surgery

We are able to offer our patients minimally invasive Laparscopic surgery.  Just like for people, with laparscopic surgery a tiny incision is made and a camera is inserted to allow surgery to be performed thru a small incision.  This means less incision to heal, less discomfort and a quicker recovery time for your pet.  Many surgeries can be performed this way, including spaying your pet.  Laparscopic surgery is also frequently used during internal organ biopsy procedures such as liver biopsies or for stomach tackings for breeds prone to bloat.

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive for pick up, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your loved one recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

 

Pet surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the right team in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

      I've been to Creature Comforts a few times, and I finally have to write a review. These people always come through when I need them. It doesn't seem to matter what the issue is, or how busy they are, they always find a way to get my dog looked at and treated.

      Today I went to another animal hospital that wasn't any help at all, but we went to Creature Comforts immediately afterward and they got us in right away.

      The staff and doctors genuinely care about you and your pet, and they go out of their way to help. Thank you for everything.

      I saw an add for a free wellness exam here on Facebook and decided to take advantage of it because of the reviews I’d seen. I felt that my previous vet (won’t mention names lol) wasn’t giving my big boy the best care. I have felt that my dog has had an ear infection for a pretty long time now. Every time I’ve taken him to my other vet they told me he was fine. My dog is 100lbs, and freaks out if you try to look in his ears. I knew they hadn’t had a good look at the ear. Dr. Miguel Nieves really went above and beyond. He and his staff worked together (took 4 assistants to hold him down) and found his infection, and Dr. Nieves even worked through his lunch break to get it all taken care of because he knew my boy was in pain. I usually have issues giving him medication too, I can’t even hide it in food usually. But this vet gave him flavored anti inflammatory pills, I can just give it to him like a treat, no issues! I know my dog is not easy to handle with his giant hyper self, And the entire staff was great with him. Everyone was so kind and professional, you can really feel that they care for pets and pet parents here. Also they are very fairly priced for their services. My old vet charged about $40 per vaccination, and they were only $14 and $20 for the ones I got here. I definitely recommended, I’m so so so happy I found this place!

      We've had the best care at Creature Comforts for 14 years. Even having to board once for a funeral which we hated to do. The staff had Ginger at the front counter most days instead of in the cage. So kind and professional. Their compassion upon her death touched me to the core. Our new little rescue, Maggie, is receiving the same wonderful care. Thanks to all the staff for their terrific care.

      This was our 1st experience with CCAH. What can I tell you? This is the first time since we have been in LV that we feel like we mattered, our fur babies mattered. The staff is WONDERFUL. Dr. Perry is AMAZING. Eragon & Zephyr went in to be neutered. They got their shots updated, blood work, exam and then hea told us his surgery time also. He called us after the boys were done and in recovery. When we picked up the boys then then told us everything. How to care for them. I can not give them a five star rating for they truly deserve more than that. We are excited to have a place for our pets to go to. We will be bringing the girls next. They take care of dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, exoctics; just not horses..
