Restoring & Maintaining Pet Health

Generations of pet parents have counted on our veterinarians to provide a wide range of elective and non-elective surgical procedures. These procedures help maintain and restore the good health of their furry family members.

Our team understands that the prospect of your beloved companion needing surgery can be distressing. Rest assured that we only recommend surgery when we feel it is in the best interests of your dog or cat.

We strive to ensure that you fully understand why we are recommending that your pet have surgery and that you feel confident, informed, and comfortable making the decision to go ahead with the procedure.

Common Surgical Procedures

At Chinook Pet Clinic, we perform elective and non-elective surgeries to help repair injuries sustained through trauma and treat disease. We also perform elective surgeries aimed at reducing the homeless animal population and maintaining optimal pet health.

Visit our Lethbridge veterinarians to learn more about the following elective and non-elective surgeries:

The Surgery Process

Prior to surgery, we will complete a thorough pre-surgical assessment. This includes a physical examination of your pet as well as blood tests to determine if they face any risk of anesthesia-related complications.

Throughout your dog or cat's procedure, a dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your companion using electronic patient monitoring equipment. Pain management will also be provided. 

Post-operative monitoring and pain management are our priorities following surgery. Your veterinarian will provide you with thorough instructions for at-home care, including how and when to administer any required medications.

Sterilization Protocols

Surgical protocols at our clinic include dedicated surgical suites, which are kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.

Our staff wears sterile attire at all times when they are in the surgical suite, and we carefully clean, sterilize, and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment prior to every surgery.
