Surgical Services

The doctors of the Russell Animal Hospital have over five decades of combined surgical experience in a wide variety of routine and advanced surgical procedures. Our doctors are well-trained in, and employ contemporary anesthetic protocols.

Your pet will receive compassionate, professional care by our staff within our state of the art surgical suite. The staff provides thorough anesthetic monitoring and supportive care during your pet's procedure and you can rest assured that our doctors and staff are committed to effective post-operative pain management to help with your pet's comfort and recovery.

After your pet's surgical/anesthetic procedure, you can expect to be contacted by a staff member to update you on your pet's status and discharge time. At your pet's discharge appointment, you will receive post surgical care instructions.

Our surgical case load includes a wide variety of both elective and non-elective procedures. These procedures include but are not limited to:

  • Ovariohysterectomy (spays) and castrations
  • Surgery of the ears, eyes, nose, throat and neck
  • Abdominal surgeries including gastrointestinal, splenectomy and bladder surgery
  • Organ biopsies
  • Urogenital surgery
  • Biopsy and tumor surgery
  • Orthopedic procedures including: anterior cruciate ligament stabilization, patella luxation surgery, femeral head and neck ostectomy and amputation

We also have a well established referral network with some of the most respected veterinary surgical specialists in the Northeast for those less common or more technically demanding orthopedic and soft tissue surgery cases.
