BVH provides surgical services, including spays, neuters, dentals, mass removals, and minor trauma surgeries. We also work with Mobile Veterinary Surgical Services for more advanced surgeries such as orthopedics which can be performed in our hospital.
Our surgical suite is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and a fully trained staff to help ensure the safety and comfort of your pet during surgical procedures. Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care.
We perform a physical exam and provide an estimate before scheduling surgery. Your pet will have preanesthetic bloodwork to check organ function, clotting, or other concerns that cannot be seen before surgery, your pet will be monitored with machines during surgery, and appropriate pain medications, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatories sent home to keep your pet comfortable during recovery. Please note: As we do offer boarding and grooming services, your pet does need to be up to date on basic vaccines for the health of your pet and others.
Our number one concern is the health and safety of your pet. If your pet is scheduled for surgery, dental procedure, or any other service that requires anesthesia, we want you to feel confident your pet is in the best of hands.
Geriatric or At Risk Spay and Neuter
We are committed to reducing pet overpopulation, but we are even more committed to keeping your pet strong and healthy for the duration of its life. Spaying (for female pets) or neutering (for male pets) is one of the best ways to keep your pet healthy and avoid unnecessary health problems now and later in life. We recommend having your pet fixed while they are still younger, which can be done at Central Spay low cost spay/neuter located in Kernersville, but we are happy to fix older pets. We run in house bloodwork on all pets before anesthesia and surgery.
Spaying females prior to their first heat cycle can help reduce the risk of breast cancer. In addition, spaying also helps prevents emergency spays, emergency uterine infections, uterine cancer, and accidental pregnancies. Neutering males prevents testicular cancer and enlargement of the prostate, and greatly reduces their risk for perianal tumors as well as reducing aggression, marking, and roaming behavior. Having your pets spayed or neutered will enable them to fulfill a long, healthy life.
