Safe & Personalized Pet Surgery Services

2 cats and a dog: Pet Surgery in Temperance

Following a physical exam and diagnostics, your veterinarian may decide that surgery should be the next step in your pet's treatment. Pet surgery can effectively treat or prevent many different health conditions, and give cats and dogs a much better life overall. Our Temperance Animal Hospital team members can answer all of your questions about what to expect from your pet's surgery, how to prepare, and how to manage their recovery. Furthermore, we want you to feel at ease about going forward with the procedure and caring for your pet while they heal.

How We Keep Your Pet Safe

To evaluate their health and determine appropriate anesthesia levels, all patients must undergo a physical exam and blood work prior to surgery. If results show an underlying problem, surgery will be postponed.

Our hospital is equipped with the most up-to-date surgical monitoring tools for:

  • ECG
  • SpO2 (oxygen saturation levels)
  • ETCO2 (carbon dioxide monitoring)
  • Temperature
  • Blood pressure

A skilled technician will assist the veterinarian throughout the surgery to check all vitals and make sure your pet is comfortable. After the procedure, your pet will be monitored by personalized recovery staff until they are awake and able to stand on their own. In the following days, we will get in touch with you to make sure your pet's recovery is going smoothly.

We would be more than happy to talk with you in person about your pet's surgery and answer any questions you have. Give us a call at (734) 847-6751 to schedule a consultation with your veterinarian.


The entire staff at TAH are so wonderful. Every time I have taken our dogs there we have received amazing care and service. Just recently we had a very frightening emergency with our youngest beagle. I went in hysterically crying and due to the nature of her injury we were there a long time deciding what to do. We were given all the time we needed, never being rushed. I love everyone there!

We took my beautiful, 20 year old cat in today, knowing he would probably have to be euthanized after suffering a stroke. We were heartbroken, of course, but the staff at TAH could not have been more caring and compassionate from the second we walked in the door.
They were sensitive to our pain, and so very respectful and caring with my baby. Thank you to the caring professionals who helped us today.
