Surgery

Are you feeling nervous about your pet’s upcoming surgery?

Bringing a family member in for an operation is never easy, regardless of whether they happen to have two legs or four. At Animal Medical Center of Bel Air, we want you to know we understand what you’re going through. That’s because we’re pet owners too. Each member of our team has experienced the uneasiness of surgery with our own animal companions. That’s why we go out of our way to ensure that every procedure performed in our clinic is as stress-free as possible. You can rest assured that your loved one will be in excellent hands with us.

 

Pre-Surgical Care

Our process begins with thorough preoperative screening. This helps us uncover and prepare for potential concerns so we can reduce the risk of complications for your pet. We’ll also develop a strategy for keeping your best friend comfortable and pain-free — before, during and following surgery. We use the safest, most effective pain control medication and customize our approach to each individual patient.

 

Your Pet’s Surgery

Regardless of whether it’s a routine spay or neuter, or a more complex procedure, your pet’s surgery will be our highest priority. From the moment you arrive, we’ll be there to ease your mind and help keep your pet calm and relaxed. Any last-minute questions you have will be answered as we get your loved one settled in and prepared for surgery.

Once safely sedated, our team will complete the procedure as efficiently as possible. As the doctor works, our dedicated support staff will be present at all times, assisting with surgery and closely monitoring your pet’s wellbeing. Our surgical suite is outfitted with modern monitoring equipment which helps us track your companion’s vital signs and pain levels.

 

Discharge and Post-Surgical Care

When surgery is complete, we’ll gently relocate your pet to our safe, quiet recovery area. As the anesthesia begins to wear off, our staff will be there to offer comfort and reassurance. We want to make the experience as calm as possible. When you arrive to pick up your pet, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions, including a plan for pain management. We want to ensure that your companion recovers as quickly and comfortably as possible.

Surgery doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety, especially if you’ve got the experienced, compassionate team at Animal Medical Center of Bel Air in your corner. Contact us today and let’s discuss how we can help with all of your companion’s surgical care needs.

      Dr. Chaudhry saved my kitty’s life with his keen instinct and expertise. I can never thank him enough. The whole staff is excellent and truly cares. They have also helped with my TNR rescue work and care about every single creature that comes through their doors.

      We had our first visit on Saturday and love this place!! Louie and I got instructions on how to brush his teeth. We picked chicken flavored toothpaste!! They took a very cute photo of Louie, a red long haired miniature dioxie. Understood Louie's allergies to shots and meds and explained how to brush his teeth to keep his teeth and gums healthy!! Louie is so loveable and I am so glad I found this vetinary practice!!

      Dr. Chaudhry and all of his staff have always been super! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. They are kind, caring, and compassionate. They do everything they can to help and don't hesitate to recommend a specialist if needed. All of the staff are patient, even when you have a ton of questions, and you are always greeted with a smile. They always take a spare minute to do a next day follow up too. We are so grateful to have them close by.

      We love Dr. Esra and her team at the Animal Medical Center. "We" meaning both of us humans, and our menagerie of pups and cats. The docs and staff are kind, gentle and caring, and have all the latest technology as well as the best natural & alternative techniques to keep our furry loved ones healthy. After moving farther away, we still drive up to Belair to patronize Dr. Esra's place, because trust and integrity don't have a zip code! They are great.
