Veterinary Surgery Pretoria

General Surgery

Menlyn Animal Clinic's veterinary surgical team has many years of experience, and is capable of providing safe surgical procedures for your dog or cat. We carefully screen your pet prior to surgery to be sure that your pet is a good candidate for anaesthesia.  We determine the pain management techniques that are appropriate for your pet’s age, breed, and current health status prior to surgery as well.

We provide the same level of patient monitoring that you would receive if you were having surgery.   All pets that undergo surgery at Menlyn Animal Clinic are carefully watched and have their blood pressure, heart rate, rhythm, and blood oxygen levels monitored by a designated qualified veterinary nurse and high-tech equipment.   Your pet will receive pain medication before, during, and after the surgical procedure.

Our surgical facilities include:

  • A fully equipped surgical suite capable to perform most types of soft tissue surgery.

  • A fully-trained veterinary nursing staff to ensure the safest, most efficient procedures for your pet

  • ECG and oxygen saturation monitors

  • Full pre-anesthetic blood testing and after-surgery care

We perform all types of general surgery, including: 

  • Soft tissue/general surgery

  • Spay and neuter

  • Emergency surgery (laceration repair, wound repair and foreign object removal)

Pain Management
At Menlyn Animal Clinic, we believe in maximizing the comfort of your pet during and after his/her surgical procedure.  Proper pain management improves your pet’s recovery and speeds the healing process.  We use a multi-modal approach to pain management.  A multi-modal approach refers to the layered administration of small amounts of different drugs to minimize any pain that your pet might feel during or after the procedure.  Because we administer lower doses of each individual drug, your pet will experience fewer adverse side effects, more complete pain relief and faster post-operative recovery.

Important information for when your pet is booked in for any procedure:

No more food from 10pm the night before the procedure
