When a pet is in need of a surgical procedure it can be a scary endeavor. We at Clear Creek Animal Hospital will care for your pet as if they were our own. Our highly skilled Certified Veterinary Technicians utilize state of the art technology and a gentle touch to take the very best care of your pet during his or her procedure.
Dr. Lindsey and Dr. Illick are skilled surgeons with 30 years combined experience. Their surgical techniques as well as individualized pain medications have helped hundreds of pets recover from surgery smoothly and comfortably. Specialists are available to perform more complicated surgical procedures such as fracture repair or TPLO.
With our fully equipped surgical suite we are able to perform a multitude of procedures:
- Mass Removals/Biopsy
- Ovariohysterectomy (spay)
- Castration (neuter)
- Cystotomy (bladder stone removal)
- Abdominal Exploratory/Foreign Body Surgery
- Sedated Wound Care (Ex: abscesses, lacerations and bite wounds)
- TPLO/FHO/Amputation and other orthopedic surgery.
We recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork for all pets. This helps us evaluate your pet’s liver and kidney function and allows us to tailor the anesthesia process for your pet.
Because we know your pet will rest more comfortably at home, most pets will go home later in the day with the appropriate pain medication.
Once it has been established that an orthopedic surgery must be performed on your pet our orthopedic specialist will come in and work with our doctors on the case. The orthopedic specialist can then perform the procedure with the assistance of our doctors and our Certified Veterinary Technicians at our facility. All of the necessary x-rays and follow up appointments can be scheduled with Dr. Lindsey or Dr. Illick.
Clear Creek Animal Hospital and our clients all know how important it is to have your pet spayed or neutered. We perform these routine procedures with the utmost care and dedication to ensure the safety of your pet while under anesthesia and during their recovery.
In some situations, an intact female pet may experience difficulties while giving birth. During these emergency situations we are able to perform an emergency c-section ensuring the best outcome for both mom and her babies.
We do not offer AI(artificial insemination) or Gastropexy at this time.
Besides all of the known procedures that our pets may need in their life there are other times in which anesthesia and surgery are needed. Unexpected lumps or bumps may need surgical removal to avoid further complications, which is often the case with cancer. Foreign body ingestion is often unexpected and usually requires surgery. We are here for those emergency procedures and can help guide you through any questions you may have.
