PEOTONE, Ill., Dec. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peotone Animal Hospital announced that the practice provides advanced veterinary surgical care. Routine operations, such as spaying and neutering, are also available. The animal hospital uses digital radiography and other high-tech diagnostic tools to aid in surgery. Laser surgery is also available. According to the veterinarian, pet surgery with lasers reduces the risk for post-operative complications, minimizes bleeding, and minimizes pain.

Peotone veterinarians are educating pet owners about how to choose the right animal hospital for pet surgery. Any operation, no matter how routine, can be a stressful experience for pet owners and their pets. Selecting the right animal hospital is critical to making the experience as positive as possible.

Pet owners should consider the following when selecting a veterinary surgical team: experience, training, use of advanced diagnostic tools, and pain management protocols. For example, the Peotone veterinarian says that digital radiography can make diagnosing internal health problems easier than traditional X-rays. Not every veterinary hospital that offers dog surgery has access to these advanced diagnostic tools.

The Peotone veterinary team also stressed the importance of strict pain management protocols for managing pain as part of post-operative pet care. Many operations require anesthesia. Blood chemistry panels should be conducted prior to administering anesthesia to reduce the risk for potential health complications. The animal hospital follows strict pain management protocols for the health and safety of every pet.

Pets may also benefit from minimally-invasive laser surgery, which is offered at the vet hospital. Laser surgery minimizes blood loss, which reduces the risk for complications. The animal hospital performs both routine and advanced cat and dog surgery. Common operations include spaying and neutering, as well as dental surgery.

"Pet owners choose our veterinary practice for pet surgery because they know that their pets will receive the best possible care here. Thanks to our stringent safety standards, experienced pet care team, high-tech diagnostics and advanced surgical techniques, we are proud to be a leading choice for pet surgery. Your pets are more familiar with us from their check-ups and visits, so they will be less anxious when a surgical procedure is necessary," said the veterinary staff.

The practice provides post-surgical care. This includes an on-site pharmacy for pain management medication and clear instructions for at-home recovery. The veterinary team is also available for any questions about a pet's recovery following the operation.
