Surgical Services

Tufts VETS offers a wide range of surgical procedures for small animal patients. We provide 24-hour care and monitoring in a state-of-the-art facility. Our surgery service is supported by both the anesthesia and critical care services to ensure an outstanding level of treatment.

We provide pre-surgical consultations with clients as well as phone consultations with referring veterinarians, and are welcome and encourage open communication with referring veterinarians to ensure the highest level of care for patients and clients.

The medical team at Tufts VETS are committed to providing the best possible care for our patients and their families before, during and after surgery. We provide full work-ups of surgical diseases and perform radiography, contrast radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasound and CT scans.

Pain Management & Anesthetic Monitoring

Pain management is key to successful treatment of surgical and chronic orthopedic disease. We work closely with our anesthesiologist to provide tailored pain management for each patient. All patients undergoing surgery at Tufts VETS are provided intensive anesthetic monitoring by a certified technician with state-of-the-art equipment. Patients with high-anesthetic risk are directly managed by a board certified anesthesiologist or critical care veterinarian.
