Pet Surgery

Surgeries at Animal Medical Corpus Christi are currently performed Monday through Friday. We ask that patients coming in for surgery have no food after Midnight and have the water removed in the morning. Patients may be dropped off from 7:30 AM until 8:30 AM for their surgery, all surgeries start promptly at 9 AM. Please note: We recommend a pre-anesthetic blood panel for all surgeries and require it for those over the age of 7 years.

Surgery Requirements

We use a surgical laser for our procedures. Surgical lasers offer reduced pain, bleeding, and swelling. Patients have a faster recovery time and a reduced risk of infection when a surgical laser is used.
