In our continuing efforts to offer the highest quality veterinary medicine, we are pleased to provide a wide range of surgical services for our patients. While having a pet undergo surgery is stressful, at Tatum Point, we strive to provide as positive an experience as possible for both you and your pet. We provide state of the art surgical care, with each pet having a dedicated, caring technician who stays with the pet from check in to discharge, Our veterinarians are confidant and well trained, and we maintain top of the line, professionally calibrated and inspected surgical and anesthetic equipment to ensure your pet receives outstanding care.

General Anesthesia is not without risk. The key is to minimize the risk by understanding the patient’s individual needs. We firmly believe that we can achieve this with a thorough pre-anesthetic exam and work up, anesthesia protocols that are individualized to the patient’s need, proactive pain control, competent monitoring and excellent surgical technique. Every patient that undergoes anesthesia at Tatum Point Animal Hospital is treated as an individual, and our goal is always to administer the minimum amount of anesthesia that is necessary in order for us to be able to perform the procedure. Additionally, we believe in proactive pain control which also helps us to better surgical recoveries. Our surgical anesthetists are compassionate, well trained and constantly monitor your pet throughout their procedure and recovery.

At times, there may be a surgical procedure that is best performed by a specialist, and in those cases, we refer your pet to a boarded surgeon and work closely with them to be certain your pet receives the best possible care.

When your pet is ready to go home, we will review your written postoperative care and medication instructions. If any questions arise after your pet returns home or at any other time during the postoperative period, call us. We welcome your questions and will do all we can to help your pet recover fully.
