Veterinary Surgery in Forest Grove

At Companion Pet Care, we know that it can be a stressful time when your pet needs an operation. We’ll be with you every step of the way.

We’ll be providing complete pre-operative information for you and your pet – this includes when to keep them from eating the night before the operation to a full schedule of the day of the operation. If your pet is going under anesthesia, we may require blood work to make sure they’re healthy enough for the operation.

During the operation, our veterinary team will be diligent in making sure we cure your pet’s ailment and call you with the good news. Multiple members of our staff will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly in the operating room.

Once your pet is out of surgery, we’ll contact you immediately and make sure that you have all of the information to bring your pet home and make sure that they’re comfortable and ready to begin healing. We may need to see your pet for a follow-up to make sure the healing process is going well.

We offer a wide range of surgical services to your pet:

Surgical Services

Soft Tissue Surgery – Examples of soft tissue surgery include growth and lump removals, laceration repair, abscess, wound repair, skin biopsies, and abdominal surgeries.

Foreign Body Removal – Many pets will ingest toys, bones, rocks, and household items that can obstruct the intestinal tract. X-rays, ultrasound, and barium studies can help verify the location of the foreign body before its surgical removal.

Cherry Eye Repair – Sometimes the gland in the corner of your pet’s eye that aids in tear production may prolapse due to weak ligaments. We are able to surgically anchor it back into place.

Gastropexy – Gastric Dilatation is a life-threatening condition in which the stomach fills with air and twists upon itself. GDV occurs most commonly occurs in large breed, deep-chested dogs, although all dogs are at risk. The procedure involves attaching the stomach to the body wall, thus preventing the twist.

Spay and Neuter Services – Spaying or neutering your dog or cat can have many benefits and advantages. These include an improvement in behavior, lowered likelihood of the pet running away, and better control of pet populations. Also, it can decrease the incidence of tumors. The spaying or neutering of a pet is highly recommended for your four-legged family member.
