What to Expect from Surgery

We always keep you fully informed about why we recommend surgery and what post-operative care your pet will require at home. Our clinic follows strict surgical protocols.

Surgical Procedures

We perform medical and emergency cat and dog surgeries at Cortaro Farms Pet Hospital to help treat disease and conditions in pets, as well as to repair injuries caused by trauma.

Elective and non-elective surgeries are routinely performed by our Tucson vet surgeons:

  • Soft Tissue Surgery

    We provide soft tissue surgical procedures for pets with ear, nose, and throat disorders.

    These procedures can also be used to treat hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin problems.

  • Spaying & Neutering

    Spaying or neutering a cat or dog prevents disease and extends their life expectancy.

  • Dental Surgery

    Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.

The Surgery Process

We understand that bringing your pet in for surgery can be nerve-racking. Please be assured that we only recommend surgery when it is in the best interests of your pet.

We will make certain that you fully understand why we are recommending surgery and that you are confident in your decision to proceed.

If your pet requires advanced care, our veterinarians will refer you to a veterinary surgeon near Tucson.

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:

Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the procedure's specifics, conduct a physical examination of the patient, and ensure that blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the veterinarian to ascertain whether your pet is at risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Dedicated surgical suites. Surgeons work in a separate surgical suite. This room is kept sterile to prevent infection.

Surgical attire. When in the surgical suite, our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times. Sterile gowns and single-use gloves will be worn by those involved in the procedure.

Sterile packs and equipment. Prior to each surgery, we meticulously clean, sterilize, and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment.
