Surgery

  • Surgery

Elective and lifesaving surgeries including spays, neuters, mass removals, eye lid surgeries, and many others are performed by appointment throughout the week.

We utilize state-of-the-art anesthesia and anesthetic monitoring equipment to assure safe and uncomplicated anesthetic episodes. Using the most up to date techniques and medications to ensure your pet is as safe as possible.

Inhalant anesthetic agents are used for all surgeries and each patient is monitored by an experienced veterinary technician in addition to the doctor. Direct and indirect blood pressure monitoring and a respiratory monitor are used to assess the patient continuously during surgery and recovery.

Each surgery is performed under aseptic conditions with a new sterile surgery pack used for each procedure.  The surgeon will surgically scrub their hands and arms, wear a mask and surgical gown, and put on sterile gloves for each procedure.

Each patient is recovered individually and placed in our intensive care unit which allows us to continuously monitor them in a controlled environment.

The Pet Mechanic is the largest full service primary care practice in Philadelphia.  We offer both routine medicine and emergency services.  For more information on available services click here ▸
