Surgical Excellence for Dogs and Cats

American Animal Hospital Association Accredited

Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital focuses on soft tissue surgery. For any orthopedic or emergency surgeries, we have a number of relationships with nearby specialists and offer referrals.

Surgeries we perform and excel in include:

More and more, we see dental care as the practice of “good medicine.” Addressing dental and periodontal health is a key component of a preventive health care program. Should your pet require surgical cleaning or dental surgery, you are in skilled hands at Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital.

Another area of surgical excellence for Flowers Mill Veterinary Hospital is declawing. While declawing has fallen into disfavor in some arenas, we offer a safe and comfortable procedure. Done properly, declawing is fairly painless and does not adversely impact cat’s life. However, it is critical that declaws are performed on indoor-only cats, under 10 lbs. and up to one year of age.

Outstanding and Dedicated Pet Care Before, During, and After Surgery

To ensure a safe procedure, one week before the scheduled surgery we perform blood work and a thorough exam. Dependent on the age and condition of the pet, we will develop an individualized protocol. EKGs and x-rays may be utilized and, in some cases, we will consult with a cardiologist. The safest anesthetics and procedures will be used. Careful monitoring by the best equipment will be employed. After surgery, we will develop a post-op plan, which will include directions on crating, monitoring, and what to do if vomiting or side effects occur. You will want to monitor your pet, keep activity low, and avoid excessive licking of the incision or surgical site.

"I have come to trust Dr. Widenmeyer’s instincts‚ his treatments‚ his honesty‚ and his genuine concern for my dogs. His expertise has given me additional years with the pets we weren’t certain were even going to make it through their ordeal. The whole staff makes the experience feel like family. I want to use this opportunity to say a BIG thank you to all the people at Flowers Mill that have helped me keep my “furry kids” happy and healthy all these years."
