We provide the highest standard of veterinary surgical care. At Noah’s Ark Veterinary Hospital, we strive to make your pet’s surgical procedure as stress free as possible by using the latest veterinary surgical equipment and care and compassion.
Our hospital is capable of handling a wide range of surgical cases, from routine spay/neuter procedures to more complex soft-tissue surgical procedures. We maintain a modern surgical OR for all surgeries and provide intensive and critical care for our patients. A board certified veterinary surgeon is available to perform surgery at Noah’s Ark, but the majority of orthopedic surgical cases are referred to a local veterinary surgical specialty facility.
We want your dog or cat to be as safe and pain free as possible during surgery. We utilize modern anesthetic techniques, comparable to those found in human hospitals. During and after surgery, we continuously monitor your pet’s vital signs. We use the latest technology, including pulse oximetry, blood pressure monitors. Heated blankets are used to keep your pet warm and a veterinary technician is on hand to monitor your pet’s condition.
When your pet pain free, he or she heals and recovers more quickly. All surgical patients receive pain management medication during and following surgery in order to relieve pain and promote fast recovery. We may also provide pain medication for you to take home with your pet.
A diagnosis of cancer can be a stressful, overwhelming experience for pet owners. However, most animals respond well to cancer treatment. Many pets successfully beat cancer and go on to live healthy, happy lives. Noah’s Ark offers chemotherapy on a case-by-case basis. We refer serious oncology cases to the Veterinary Specialty Hospital or the specialists at North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine.
