State-of-the-Art Surgery Center for Pets
There may be times in your pet’s life when surgery is necessary, and from spaying and neutering to emergency surgery, All Pet Animal Hospital’s veterinarians and technicians are experts at providing tender care during your pet’s procedure.
Types of Veterinary Surgery
We provide a wide range of veterinary surgeries, including:
- Spays and neuters
- Emergency surgery
- Lump removal
- Abdominal surgery
- Orthopedic surgeries
Laparoscopic surgery involves inserting a camera and very thin instrument into a small access port to performing surgeries that would otherwise require larger areas of incision.
The advantages of laparoscopic spay surgery over traditional spaying include:
- Up to a 65% reduction in post-surgery pain
- Smaller incisions
- Less chance of infection
- Quicker recovery time
- Usually no follow-up visit necessary
- Less restrictions on activities
Preparing for Surgery
We will give you clear instructions on how to prepare your pet for surgery, including restrictions on food and water intake, how to handle medications, and when to arrive at the hospital. Once your pet arrives, our staff will take a pre-anesthetic blood sample and place an IV catheter running fluids to make sure your pet stays hydrated. Our surgical tables are even heated for your pet’s comfort.
Anesthesia: We Monitor Every Breath
One of the most important aspects of any surgery is anesthesia. We promise to monitor every breath your pet takes before, during, and after anesthesia is administered. We use the same cutting-edge technology that the universities use, and we always have a dedicated person in the operating room that monitors your pet’s breathing and vital signs.
Your pet’s comfort before, during, and after surgery is very important to us. Our doctors are very experienced in pain management techniques. Medication will be provided to ensure your pet does not feel discomfort.
This was our second visit to All Pet Animal Hospital, and I was again impressed with the helpfulness, friendliness and compassion shown by each and every staff member. I did not have an appointment, but they very willingly fit me in to see the doctor. I cannot imagine entrusting any of our pets to any other vet.
I have used All Pet since 2002 and also visited their 616 S Pike Rd RT 356 Sarver PA 16055 location - 724-295-9933 They are the most pet friendly staff I have ever encountered in the last 35 years as a pet owner. Dr. Person and Dr. Bennett are awesome.
Dr. Bennett is WONDERFUL!!! A great animal lover who takes the time to explain what is going on. I am not that tuned into animal health and had to relay information to my wife. Dr. Bennett photocopied a page out of his animal doctor book for her, I was shocked that he took the time to do that. He then actually showed me the skin scrape under a microscope.
Dr. Bennett took his time with my bird and I feel he did a very through exam. I was satisfied with Dr. Bennett’s concern and his explanation.
I felt as welcomed being a new patient as if I was an old friend. Dr. Bennett was extremely knowledgeable regarding my bird and his situation. Thank you so much for helping me & Jacob, he is doing so well!–Christine Palewski & Jacob
Very friendly, neat, clean and extremely reasonable.
I checked around for a vet that was close, had good hours and was reasonably priced. I was also very impressed by the entire staff and the genuine affection they showed to my new puppy!
I chose this hospital because of the recommendation of The National Aviary.
Dr. Bennett came highly recommended by the reptile keepers at the Pittsburgh Zoo. Everyone was great I felt my tortoise had the best care available.
My experience was vey positive, every person I met was warm, caring, and knowledgeable. So happy to have a great vet nearby home!
Dr. Bennett is one of the kindest people both to my cat AND me!
Dr. Person is detailed and thorough…very good first impression!
Dr. Bennett went above and beyond! Although he had to refer us to a specialty care facility for Primo’s surgery, he has become and will remain our new vet! He was kind, caring and honest…first vet out of 4 that I actually feel comfortable taking my “baby” to. I can’t thank you enough!–Jayme and Primo Wilder
I think your staff was one of the nicest staffs I’ve ever met. I thank you guys for taking care of my puppy!
Thank you for taking such good care of me during my “healing time” after surgery. Sometimes I would get scared and bark a lot, but you always found a way to make me feel comfortable in the end. You are all so kind and so nice to me. Thank you!
–Love, Rocky Schaerer
There are no words to convey our gratitude for your kindness and skill. Things looked bleak for our Grufa Girl, but thanks to all of you (and the powers of prayer) we get to have our girl with us for some additional time. Thank you hardly seems adequate!
