Surgery

The doctors and staff of Veterinary Clinic of Myrtle Beach have many years of experience in emergency and critical care surgery, routine surgery, complicated surgical procedures, and safe Anesthesia. We perform planned procedures during the week when post-operative care can be monitored and managed. Emergency surgeries are performed whenever needed. We accommodate our schedule based on the patient’s needs.

All patients undergoing surgery receive a Financial Estimate for the procedure, and pre-anesthetic bloodwork. An intravenous catheter is placed and IV fluids are given while the pet is under gas anesthesia. Patients are monitored by Licensed and certified Veterinary Nurses who are trained in anesthesia monitoring and safety. Our monitoring equipment, protocols and anesthesia guidelines mirror that of human standards of care.

Most Soft Tissue surgeries are performed at VMCB, including:

  • Spays and Neuters
  • Biopsies, Tumor and Mass removal
  • Laceration and Wound repair
  • Traumatic Injury procedures
  • Abdominal Exploratory surgery
  • Bladder Stone Removal
  • Splenectomy
  • Eyelid and Facial surgery
  • Oral Tumor removal
  • Toe and Limb Amputation surgery
  • Mammary Tumor removal
  • Gastrointestinal Foreign Body removal surgery
  • Revision and Repair procedures
Non-Routine Surgical Paitents

Non-routine surgical patients usually stay 1-2 nights in the hospital for post-operative care and treatment, where they are assigned a specific doctor and Nurse for the length of their hospital stay. During this time we stay in close contact with the pet owner, giving updates on their pet’s condition.

Orthopedic Surgeries

Orthopedic surgeries are not performed at the Veterinary Clinic of Myrtle Beach, but we do refer these patients to qualified veterinary practitioners we know and trust. We handle the referral and transfer of care for your pet in a cohesive manner that allows us to still manage the patient’s needs before and after an orthopedic surgery.

Whenever needed, we will refer our clients to the Veterinary Specialty Care Hospital in Mt. Pleasant, SC for specialty surgical (and medical) care, when a Board-Certified Veterinarian is needed.
