State-of-the-art Surgical Suite

Most of the time, surgery is an elective procedure such as ovarian hysterectomy or castration. Sometimes surgery is the only treatment, such as repairing a fractured leg or as an emergency, such as C-sections for difficult births. In any case, Ark Animal Hospital has a separate surgery suite fully equipped with up to date anesthetic, surgical and monitoring equipment to provide the best care possible.

We recommend a thorough pre-operative exam, pre-surgical blood analysis and post-operative analgesics to make the procedure as pain free as possible. Our staff is fully trained and capable of taking care of your pet’s needs before, during and after surgery.
