At Markham Woods Animal Hospital, we blend compassion with cutting-edge technology to deliver exceptional surgical care for your beloved feline companions. Our dedicated team is wholly committed to safeguarding the health and happiness of your pets through state-of-the-art surgical procedures.

We offer a comprehensive spectrum of surgical services, which include:

  • Spay and Neuter
  • Emergency Surgery (e.g., laceration repair, wound repair, foreign object removal, 
  • Dental Surgery

In addition, we provide cryosurgery, an innovative technique utilizing liquid nitrogen to freeze abnormal tissue, making it ideal for conditions such as warts, cysts, tumors, and oral cancers.

  • A highly skilled veterinary and technical nursing team to ensure the utmost safety and efficiency for your cherished pets.
  • Monitoring equipment, encompassing ECG and oxygen saturation monitors, to closely oversee your pet's vital signs.

  • Comprehensive pre-anesthetic blood testing and intensive post-surgery care to ensure your pet's safety.

What to expect on the day of surgery

Before any surgery, we conduct a thorough assessment of all patients, customizing anesthetic protocols to their specific requirements. Pre-surgical blood analysis enables us to evaluate their kidney, liver, and heart functions before anesthesia administration.

Throughout the surgical process, we implement meticulous patient monitoring, akin to the standards upheld in human healthcare facilities. We employ advanced equipment and manual techniques to monitor vital signs, which include pulse oximetry, respiratory monitoring, EKG, temperature surveillance, and oxygen therapy.

Following the surgery, your pet will receive attentive care from our nursing staff until they regain consciousness, ensuring their comfort and well-being. You will be regularly updated on your pet's condition, and our team will provide you with clear postoperative care instructions when you come to pick up your furry friend. We also follow up with you after a few days to assess your pet's progress and address any additional queries.

We prioritize pain management to enhance your pet's comfort during and after the procedure. Our multi-modal approach to pain management involves the administration of various medications in judicious amounts to minimize discomfort and mitigate side effects. This approach guarantees that your pet experiences minimal pain, a smoother recovery, and an overall safer pain management process.
