Your Pet's Surgery in Plantation

Dr. Wald and the entire Plantation veterinary staff at Central Broward Animal Hospital understand that the decision to allow your beloved companion to undergo surgery is never easy. We strive to ensure your pet's procedure is as comfortable, pain and stress-free as possible.

Perhaps the most important pre-surgical step is to discuss why we believe a particular procedure is necessary and what it entails. Our veterinarians will provide you with information on proper postoperative care and answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable knowing you are making the right choice for your pet.

We regularly perform many types of veterinary surgeries, including but not limited to:

  • Spays & Neuters
  • Eye Surgery
  • Bladder Surgery
  • Tumor Removal
  • Gastrointestinal Surgeries
  • Orthopedic Surgeries
  • Cancer Surgeries
  • Skin Surgery

Anesthesia

Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care. We utilize a multi-parameter monitoring and anesthesia system to ensure your pet's safety during all surgeries.

Prior to surgery, your pet is examined and a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and your pet's past anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol.

We utilize the most current state-of-the-art monitoring technology. During anesthesia, your pet is cared for by a well-trained and experienced veterinarian and veterinary technician using a monitoring system which tracks blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and oxygen level. We control body temperature carefully using special circulating air blankets. An IV catheter is also placed to give fluids and administer medications during surgery.

We all know that pain hurts, but pain also has other detrimental effects on your pet's body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity, causes behavioral changes (such as aggression, stress and anxiety, and depression). Pain worsens diseases like arthritis and potentially some cancers. It interferes with the bond between you and your pet.

At Central Broward Animal Hospital, we practice the most up-to-date pain management protocol. For acute and chronic conditions, we use all our available and safe resources, including NSAIDS (non-steroidal medications) and oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet.

Board-Certified Surgery at Central Broward Animal Hospital

To offer your pet the best care possible we utilize a board-certified veterinary surgeon for those surgeries that are orthopedic or more complicated.
