“Scrappy, one of our greatest loves was diagnosed with a form of lymphoma. Through the incredible care and nurturing provided by Park Grove Pet Hospital, we were able to have him with us until he reached the age of 13. The care, support, and counseling given by the wonderful staff was beyond measure and we will be forever grateful. ”

St. Paul Area Veterinary Surgery: High Standards in Pet Surgical Care

Pet Surgical Care at Park Grove Pet Hospital

Park Grove Pet Hospital is a full-service hospital offering a variety of routine soft tissue and orthopedic procedures.

Some of the surgical procedures we perform regularly include spay, neuter, declaw, abdominal surgery, tumor removal, and minor fracture fixation. These surgeries are performed on site in our dedicated surgical suite. We meet the highest standards in surgical care, with a focus on the unique needs of your pet.

Before Surgery

We invite pet owners to tour our surgical suite and surgery preparation area. You will find we are dedicated to the safety, comfort, and recovery of every patient.

Our pre-surgical exam and lab tests are designed to detect conditions that might pose a risk for anesthesia. These precautions allow us to select drugs tailored to your pet’s specific needs. We also employ a wide variety of pain management protocols during surgery and for the recovery period at home.

During Surgery

Your pet will never be alone. During every surgical procedure, a technician is dedicated to monitoring each patient and recording blood pressure, temperature, oxygenation, respiration rate, heart rate and rhythm,—adjusting anesthesia as necessary. Every surgical patient receives an intravenous catheter and fluids throughout the procedure, which allows for maintenance of blood pressure and the immediate administration of pain medication or other necessary drugs. Recovery after the surgery is on a padded table in a heated area, with continued monitoring until the patient is fully alert.

Hospitalized pets are cared for in our inpatient treatment area. Intensive care services for these patients include intravenous fluid therapy and medications, blood pressure and pulse oximetry monitoring, oxygen therapy, and pain management. These services are critical to seriously ill patients or those post-surgery requiring ongoing hospitalization.

After every surgical procedure, a member of our hospital team will review aftercare instructions with owners. Patients are sent home with pain medication and further written instructions for post-surgical care. Typically, a follow-up appointment is scheduled free of charge to ensure a complete recovery.
