At our Dallas clinic, we use stringent surgical protocols to provide a wide range of surgical procedures for cats and dogs.
A dedicated nurse will administer anesthesia and continuously monitor your pet using electronic patient monitoring equipment during each surgery. In addition, pain management will be provided.
Following surgery, our top priorities are post-operative monitoring and pain management. Your veterinarian will also give you detailed instructions for at-home care.
What to Expect from Surgery
We always keep you fully informed of the reasons for recommending a surgical procedure and any post-operative care your pet will require at home. At our clinic, we adhere to strict surgical protocols.
We perform medical and emergency surgeries at New Hope Animal Hospital to help treat disease and conditions in pets, as well as to repair injuries caused by trauma.
Elective and non-elective surgeries are routinely performed by our Dallas veterinarians:
- Soft Tissue Surgery
We provide soft tissue surgical procedures for pets with ear, nose, and throat disorders.
These procedures can also be used to treat hepatic, urogenital, oncological, cardiothoracic, gastrointestinal, and skin problems.
- Spaying & Neutering
When we spay or neuter a cat or dog, we are surgically sterilizing them to prevent disease and extend their life.
We surgically remove puppies or kittens from their mother's uterus during Caesarean sections.
When a mother is unable to give birth naturally, a C-section is usually performed.
If your pet is experiencing pain, redness, or other symptoms in or around their eyes, ocular surgery may be required.
Eyelid tumor removal, cataract surgery, ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, orbit exenteration, and cherry eye surgery are all common ocular procedures for cats and dogs.
If your cat or dog requires surgery, our veterinarians will refer you to a pet surgeon near Dallas and will work closely with your animal surgeon to ensure that your pet receives the best possible care.
- Orthopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgery is used to treat injuries and diseases affecting your pet's bones, ligaments, joints, tendons, and other skeletal structures. If your dog or cat has a condition or injury that requires advanced specialized care, your veterinarian will refer you to a veterinarian in the Dallas area.
- Dental Surgery
Our veterinarians provide dental surgeries for dogs and cats. These surgeries can range from tooth extractions to gum disease treatment and jaw fracture repairs.

Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the procedure details, perform a physical examination of the patient, and ensure that blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the veterinarian to determine if your pet is at risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. Surgical procedures are carried out in a dedicated surgical suite. To avoid infection and cross-contamination, this room is kept completely sterile.
Surgical attire. When in the surgical suite, our staff wears disposable caps and masks at all times. Sterile gowns and single-use gloves will be worn by those involved in the procedure.
Sterile packs and equipment. Before each surgery, we meticulously clean, sterilize, and wrap our surgical instruments and equipment.
