"Safer surgeries and steadfast hands"
Our medical director and head feline veterinarian has over a 12 years of feline surgery experience. Prior to Meadows Cat Hospital, Dr. George mentored and developed the surgical skills of dozens of new and seasoned veterinarians. This advanced veterinary experience and her roots at a rural Wisconsin clinic (where there was limited access to referral and emergency clinics), means Dr. George has significant, independent and advanced feline surgery experience.
As of February 2017, we now offer a full suite of feline surgery capabilities including routine cat spay, in-heat spay, pyometra spay, cat neuters, cryptorchid neuter, cherry eye repair, enucleation (eye removal), amputation/partial amputation, perineal uretchrostomy (PU surgery), abdominal exploratory, cystotomy, mass removal, intestinal biopsy, surgical liver biopsy, maxillofacial surgery, ear hematoma repair and laceration repair.
Prior to any cat surgical treatment at Meadows Cat Hospital, we strongly recommend economic pre-anesthetic blood-work which helps us to determine if your cat is healthy enough for anesthesia and for young cats can give us a vital baseline for liver and kidney function to reference later in life. During cat surgeries, we use only the most proven, safest and modern human-grade pre-anesthetics and gas anesthetics. Vital sign monitoring is done with only highly trained veterinary technicians and we always recommend intravenous fluids for all surgical procedures. After surgery, we provide your feline with short-term oral and/or long-term injectable pain management options for post-surgical care.
