Surgical and ICU Services:
Experienced & Compassionate Pet Care
Whether a pet needs routine surgery, such as a spay or neuter, or a more advanced surgical procedure, such as attending to a fracture or exploratory surgery, the veterinarians of All Pets Animal Hospital & 24-Hour Emergency Care have the advanced training and experience needed to provide quality care.
Routine Veterinary Surgery
Pets and their owners can be nervous about routine surgeries, such as spaying, neutering, and dental work, so our veterinarians and technicians work to make sure everything your pet experiences will allow them to remain as calm, comfortable, and safe as possible.
As you will see from the technology we use described below, we have equipped our hospital to closely monitor all pets throughout their procedures and recovery. Our calming, compassionate staff tracks patient vital statistics and watches for any signs of discomfort as the pets come out of anesthesia in our recovery rooms.
Maintaining excellent pain management is a high priority at our hospital, and we will train you on how to monitor your pet’s level of comfort as well so that when he or she goes home, you can be assured your pet will continue to heal and recover quickly.
Routine surgeries at All Pets Animal Hospital include:
- Oral extractions

Intensive Care Unit
When All Pets Animal Hospital was being designed, our veterinarians knew the importance of having an observation area for critical patients. The ICU is centrally located in the hospital for constant attention for the pets that require continuous eye contact and treatment.
Our in-house lab allows us to quickly monitor our pets’ internal health status and our air circulation system, which isolates areas of our hospital, provides protection for fragile cases.
Depending upon the reason for a pet being in our ICU, formal exams are performed on a specific frequency basis, but the informal checks are ongoing throughout the patient’s stay. We provide 24-hour nursing care as our technicians are on staff through the night.
In addition to its centralized location, the ICU is equipped with life-saving technology, including:
Oxygen delivery system
For pets needing respiratory assistance, our oxygen delivery system can be utilized in any of the ICU kennels.
IV fluid pumps
Providing the proper balance of electrolytes and fluids to seriously ill pets is critical to the recovery process.
Pets who have undergone a shock to their systems either due to illness or injury often require additional heat to stabilize their condition.
Critical patients often need their heart monitored to ensure they are progressing through recovery.
- Doppler blood pressure measurement
All Pets Animal Hospital & 24-Hour Emergency Care maintains the practices and technologies necessary for expert critical care. Please contact us with any of your questions regarding our ICU abilities.
