Our veterinarians perform general surgery at our facility every weekday morning. We commonly perform ovariohysterectomies (spays), neuters, growth removals, cystotomies (bladder stone removal), and other soft tissue surgeries.
We have a referral veterinarian, Dr. Steve Timm, utilizing our facility for orthopedic and other specialty surgeries as needed. Dr. Steven Timm graduated in 1986 from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. He has extensive experience in small animal emergency and critical care, and currently works as a surgical consultant for companion animals, providing Shorewood Animal Hospital with the expertise and experience necessary for difficult orthopedic and soft tissue repairs. Living in scenic Vernon county surrounded by wildlife, he pursues his hobbies of woodworking, canoeing, fishing and hiking.
We recommend lab work prior to many procedures to help provide the highest level of safety during and after the anesthesia. The lab work recommended varies due to the age and medical history of the pet.
In addition, our patients are monitored by Certified or Licensed Veterinary Technicians and modern equipment including ECG, pulse oximeter, esophageal temperature, CO2, blood pressure and respiration monitors. Patients are kept at optimum body temperature with a warm water blanket placed underneath and a warm air unit over the top of them. Patients are also safeguarded with an IV catheter and fluid support.
