General Surgery

At Flushing Animal Hospital, we strive to provide a safe, sterile, and friendly environment for your furry friend while they are here for surgery. We, as pet lovers, know how nervous it can make you to think about surgery for your friend, and we do not treat it lightly. Thus, we'd like to take a minute to explain to you what your pet will experience while they're here with us, and hopefully ease your mind.

After you drop your pet off in the morning, they will receive an injection of a tranquilizer, which helps to protect their heart and relaxes your pet while they are here waiting for surgery. If your dog or cat is to have preanesthetic blood work done, they will have their blood drawn soon after arriving so that any abnormalities are noted and addressed before their surgery time (between 12-3). If all blood work comes back okay, we will proceed with the surgery as planned. Your pet will be given an injectable anesthetic before being put on gas anesthetic. This is to reduce the amount of stress on your pet's heart. It will also help to give your pet a smoother recovery. Your pet will be maintained on gas anesthetic for the remainder of the surgery (typically 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the procedure). While your pet is under anesthesia, a Techinicion or Assistant will monitor them closely until they have fully recovered.

Although we do many types of surgeries ranging from tumor and wart removals to amputations and emergency surgery, it is very difficult to list prices for procedures other than the most commonly performed, as cost changes depending on the pet's weight, physical condition, and individual needs. We will gladly make an estimate for you if you pet ever needs one of these procedures. Listed below are the descriptions of many of the surgeries we offer, and their prices.

 

**Before we wil schedule your pet for surgery, we do require that they have been seen at our facility within the past year.


 

CAT SPAY (OVARIOHYSTERECTOMY)                                                
Spaying your cat is an important part of basic health care. Spaying at a young age helps to prevent mammary cancer and uterine infections. Spaying at any age prevents unwanted kittens, noisy heat cycles, and possibly even urine marking in the house. Spaying can be done safely at 12 weeks of age and over and the recovery period usually lasts around a week (depending on your pet's age.) Your cat will be closely monitored while under anesthesia, carefully watching her breathing rate, heart rate, and body temperature. Our spay patients are checked-in in the morning and always stay overnight to ensure that there are no problems, that they are comfortable, eating and drinking, and have rested as the first 24 hours after surgery are crucial in the healing process. Your cat can go home the next afternoon.

Price of the Cat Spay Includes*:
• Nursing Care and Monitoring
• Pre-Anesthetic Injections and General Anesthesia
• Complimentary Nail Trimming
• Surgical Packs and Supplies

CAT NEUTER (CASTRATION)                                                                
Neutering your cat friend is one of the most important aspects of his health care that you can do for him. The most beneficial reasons to neuter him include reducing the incidence of objectionable behaviors. By neutering your cat you will reduce his liklihood of roaming by almost 90%, likelihood of fighting by almost 90%, and reduce the risks of urine marking by almost 90%. If you have him neutered as a kitten the likelihood of preventing these behaviors before they even start is almost 100%!
While under anesthesia your friend will be closely monitored, carefully watching his breathing rate, heart rate, and body temperature. Our neuter patients are checked-in in the morning and are able to go home later in the evening, just as soon as we have made sure they are fully awake.

DOG SPAY (OVARIOHYSTERECTOMY)                                               
Spaying your pet is one of the most significant aspects of female dog health care an owner can provide. The benefits to the dog far outweigh simply not having puppies. A dog spayed before her first heat cycle will have a near zero chance of developing mammary cancer. After the first hear cycle, this incidence climbs to 7% and after the second heat the risk is 25%, that's 1 in 4!

Another important reason to spay your dog is Pyometra. Pyometra is a life threatening infection of the uterus which generally occurs in middle-aged to older female dogs. Pyometra causes the uterus to swell dramatically and fill with pus, bacteria, and toxins and emergency spaying is crucial at this point. It is easy to see that an early spay can prevent these difficult and often times fatal health conditions.

Your friend will be closely monitored while under anesthesia, carefully watching her breathing rate, heart rate, and body temperature. Our spay patients are checked-in in the morning and always stay overnight at the hospital to ensure that there are no problems, that they are comfortable, eating and drinking, and have rested as the first 24 hours after surgery are crucial in the healing process. Your dog can go home the next afternoon.

• Nursing Care and Monitoring

DOG SPAY 51# AND OVER - $175.00*

* Additional costs may apply if your pet is in heat, pregnant, or has cystic ovaries. Cost does not include any procedures not listed above.


DOG NEUTER (CASTRATION)                                                                
Having your dog neutered is one of the most important aspects of his health care. Not only will it help to prevent prostate problems later in life, but it will affect his behavior in a positive way. His interest in roaming will decrease by roughly 90%, aggressive behavior against other dogs is eliminated in 60% of dogs, urine marking is eliminated in 50% of dogs, and inappropriate mounting is eliminated in 70% of dogs. These numbers are almost 100% if your friend is neutered as a puppy!

Neutering can be safely done at 12 weeks of age or over and the recovery period usually lasts about a week (depending on your dog's age). Your friend will be closely monitored while under anesthesia, carefully watching his breathing rate, heart rate, and body temperature. Our neuter patients are checked-in in the morning and always stay overnight in the hospital to ensure that there are no problems, that they are comfortable, eating and drinking, and have rested as the first 24 hours after surgery are crucial in the healing process. Your dog can go home the next afternoon.

FELINE DECLAWING                                                                                
Having your cat declawed can be a valuable option if they scratch furniture, curtains, screens, or even your skin. At Flushing Animal Hospital, we use the surgical scalpel method, a method that does not cause crushing or bruising as other methods can. With this method, the third digit of the toe is removed and the ligaments carefully dissected between the bone to ensure as little pain and discomfort as possible! Declawing can be done safely as early as 8 weeks of age. It can also be done at the same time as your cat's spay or neuter, if you'd like. The smaller your cat, the easier the procedure is on them. If your cat is over 8 or 9 pounds, we may suggest taking home pain medication so that they are more comfortable afterwards. During anesthesia your cat will be closely monitored, carefully watching their breathing rate, heart rate, and temperature. Our declaw patients are checked-in in the morning and always stay overnight in the hospital to ensure that there are no problems, that they are comfortable, eating and drinking, and have rested as the first 24 hours after surgery are crucial to the healing process. Your cat will be able to go home the next afternoon.

Price of the Declaw Includes*:
• Nursing Care and Monitoring
• Pre-Anesthetic Injections and General Anesthesia
• Complimentary Nail Trimming (On rear feet if having front declaw)
• Surgical Packs and Supplies
• The Declaw
• Overnight Hospitalization (Including Science Diet Adult or Kitten Original dry formula food, a littler box, and a warm blanket while here)

FRONT ONLY DECLAW (Cats under 5# and less than 1 yr old) - $135.00*

FRONT ONLY DECLAW (Cats over 5# or over 1 yr old) - $145.00*

*Cost does not include any procedure that is not listed above.

 

Pain Medication and Preanesthetic bloodwork are NOT included in any of the above procedures. You will be offered both of these upon signing your surgical consent form.


We do not offer cosmetic procedures such as Ear Cropping as this procedure is extremely painful and there is no medical reason to have it done.


 

Are you considering having your pet spayed or neutered, but are concerned about cost? Are you considering using the spay/neuter express van? We offer HIGH QUALITY surgery and very REASONABLE PRICES!

Some things to keep in mind before making this decision:

Do research! - It's always okay to look up reviews, talk to the professionals at the establishment, and ask for a tour (if they don't have any
thing to hide, they will be happy to show you around)
Know what you are paying for! - Ask what is included in the cost of your surgery (You get what you pay for)
Sleep on it - Really take the time to consider what's best for your pet, what you are hoping for in the end, and what you are willing to sacrifice to save a buck.
