Protocol for Veterinary Surgery

At Black Creek Veterinary Hospital, we make sure that you’re informed about every detail of your pet’s surgery. After an initial evaluation of your pet’s case and a full examination, we’ll run pre-anesthetic blood work to make sure anesthesia and medications won’t pose a serious risk. Our assessment may also include necessary X-rays for your pet. After determining the proper course of treatment, we’ll discuss the options available to you to find the best solution within your price range.

All patients receive constant monitoring and professional anesthesia during surgery. Pain management in the pre- and post-op stages, antibiotics, fluid therapy, and any essential blood work will be provided based on your pet’s condition.

As part of standard surgery protocol at Black Creek Veterinary Hospital, we’ll also provide you with a discharge instructions when you take your friend home. This includes a detailed profile of your pet’s surgery, and recommendations for homecare and a full recovery.

Veterinary Orthopedics

In addition to high-quality soft tissue and routine veterinary surgeries, Black Creek Veterinary Hospital also offers a range of professional orthopedic services for dogs and cats. Orthopedic procedures are different from other types of surgery, and deal expressly with treating conditions that affect the musculoskeletal systems of pets. Members of our veterinary staff trained in these special surgeries are on hand and ready to care for your pet if he or she should every need us.

Orthopedic surgery encapsulates a number of procedures that can help animal companions overcome serious injury, muscle and joint pain, and degenerative conditions cause discomfort and limit mobility. Drawing on a strong base of training and experience in veterinary orthopedics, our doctors provide:

  • Basic fracture repairs
  • Cruciate ligament surgery
  • Corrective treatment for hip dysplasia, joint luxation, and chronic pain associated with tendon and bone wear.
  • Amputations and salvage procedures designed to save a pet’s life during instances of severe trauma.
  • We apply the very same high standards for safety and pain prevention used in our routine surgical services. Above all, our primary concern is to improve the overall quality of life of your pet. As such, our veterinarians always take the utmost care to ensure that every patient receives the most attentive, compassionate, and beneficial surgeries available.

These specialized procedures are administered strictly on a case-by-case basis. Black Creek Veterinary Hospital reserves orthopedic surgeries for pets following comprehensive diagnoses to determine each patient’s needs. If you would like to know about these types of services, or have questions on veterinary orthopedics in general, simply contact us to speak with a knowledgeable member of our team.


Sometimes, in the course of care, your pet may need to stay with us for a short time to ensure a full recovery. This may be necessary following extensive surgery, injury, or illness. Black Creek Veterinary Hospital has the ability to fully care for your pet’s every need, with complete intensive care services in addition to multimodal post-op and recovery treatments.

Pet Monitoring and Hospitalization

Whether your pet needs intensive care to ensure recovery from a severe injury, basic monitoring after surgery, or something in between, our caring veterinarians and staff will be there to provide all the attention your pet needs to get well again.

We can provide full IV and catheter fluid therapy in any situation where dehydration or fluid loss presents risks to your pet’s health. Treating kidney disease in cats and dogs is one instance where fluid therapy is crucial.

At any time when consistent daytime monitoring or attention to an illness is required, we use state of the art equipment to keep tabs on each patient’s pulse, temperature, and vitals. Oxygen therapy is also available to pets facing with respiratory complications. All monitoring and intensive care is provided alongside constant supervision. Any necessary medications will also be readily available from our compassionate technicians.

Referrals for 24 Hour Monitoring

While we have the ability to keep pets overnight at the hospital, we also work closely with local emergency hospitals to refer our patients for complete 24 hour and overnight hospitalization. Referrals are made dependent on the severity of each individual case. We will always discuss all available options so you can make the best possible decisions regarding the care your pet receives.
