Veterinary Surgery Overview

Getting the news that your pet needs surgery can be frightening. But when you choose us for your pet’s procedure, you can rest assured knowing that they are in excellent hands.

The highest standards of care for all surgical procedures

Nebraska Animal Medical And Emergency Center performs veterinary surgery in Lincoln and has a state-of-the-art surgical suite where our veterinarians perform procedures, including:

  • Spay and neuter

  • Laceration and wound repair

  • Reconstructive surgery

  • Soft tissue

Nebraska Animal Medical And Emergency Center’s veterinarians maintain the highest standards of care for all surgical procedures. We use inhalation (gas) anesthesia, one of the safest available anesthetics. Using the most current technology, your pet’s vital signs are monitored by our specially trained licensed veterinary technicians, who will remain with your pet throughout the procedure and recovery.

Comprehensive Pet Surgical Care: What to Expect

Your pet will have an IV catheter placed in his or her front leg so fluids can be given during the procedure, and we administer a pre-anesthetic injection to calm anxiety. During any procedure, your pet is kept warm and is monitored continually for blood pressure, heart rate, mucus membrane color, capillary refill time, breaths per minute, oxygen level, and body temperature throughout the surgery. In almost every procedure we perform, the laser has replaced the traditional scalpel in the operating room. Because the laser cauterizes blood vessels and nerve endings as it incises, the result is less pain, bleeding, and swelling. Your pet will be under anesthesia for less time, and postoperative infection and discomfort risks are reduced. Please note that routine surgeries may be postponed if an emergency case presents itself to us or if your pet is not well enough for the procedure. We feel unnecessary risks must be avoided and will take precautions to minimize potential complications. If there are concerns with diagnostic results or your pet’s condition warrants it, we may need to treat your pet with medication and/or diet prior to his or her anesthetic procedure. We will reschedule your pet for another time after the doctor clears him or her for anesthesia.
