SurgeryThe veterinary team at Boulevard Veterinary Clinic understands that the decision to allow your beloved companion to undergo surgery is never an easy one. We strive to ensure your pet's procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Perhaps our most important pre-surgical step is to explain why we believe a particular procedure is necessary and what it entails. Our veterinarians provide you with information on proper postoperative care and answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable knowing you are making the right decision for your pet.

All pets are given blankets pre-surgery and lay in warming blankets during the procedure. Post-operative care includes close monitoring by veterinary technicians in a warm and soothing recovery area.

Some of the surgical procedures we perform include:

Soft Tissue Surgery:

  • Spays and Neuters (rabbits included)
  • Growth Removals
  • Abscess Surgery
  • Declaw Surgery
  • Eyelid Surgery
  • Anal Gland Surgery
  • Ferret Adrenalectomy
  • Aural Hematoma
  • Gastrointestinal Surgery

  • Splenectomy

Orthopedic Surgery:

  • Femoral Head Ostectomy
  • Luxating Patella Surgery
  • Fracture Repair
  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament Surgery


Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care. Our skilled veterinary technicians perform state-of-the-art anesthesia administration and cardiovascular monitoring.

Prior to surgery, your pet is examined and a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and your pet's history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol.

While under anesthesia, your pet is continuously monitored by a well-trained and experienced veterinary technician using an advanced pulse oximeter which tracks blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and blood oxygen level.

Pain Management

We all know that pain hurts, but pain also has many other detrimental effects on your pet's body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity, and causes behavioral changes (such as aggression, anxiety, and depression). Pain worsens diseases like arthritis and potentially some cancers. It interferes with the bond between you and your pet.

For acute and chronic conditions, the staff at Boulevard Veterinary Clinic use all available and safe resources for the complete comfort of your pet.
