Quality, Compassionate Care Like No Other!
At Fox Valley Veterinary Service, we perform many routine elective surgeries such as spays, neuters and declaws, as well as orthopedic, opthalmic, soft tissue, and abdominal procedures. We make every effort to ensure your pet's surgical experience is comfortable and uncomplicated as possible. Your pet's safety and comfort are our chief concern. We also want you to feel assured that your pet will be cared for by our highly skilled, caring staff, and our standards for surgical care are high quality. Today, pets of all ages and most health conditions are acceptable candidates for anesthesia. While anesthesia is not without risk, many factors contribute to the safety and widespread use of anesthetics in veterinary practice.
Our state-of-the-art surgical suite is fully equipped with a heated surgical table, electrocautery, modern monitoring devices, inhalation anesthesia, and LASER. This exciting and important technology is used daily by doctors at our facility to provide the most advanced and compassionate medical care for your pet.
We are proud to offer laser surgery for our clients who want the safest and least painful treatment for their pets. Long used in human healthcare, laser technology is a proven service with multiple applications. Only recently have veterinarians turned to laser surgery, and we are proud to be on the leading edge of advanced animal care. In many cases, laser surgery can be extremely beneficial over traditional surgery.
A laser is an intense beam of light. Using an instrument that allows it to be precisely controlled, the laser beam replaces the traditional scalpel. Laser energy instantly vaporizes the water found in tissue, allowing it to be "cut" or essentially remove an extremely small area of tissue. The energy seals nerve endings and blood vessels as it moves through the tissue, resulting in less bleeding, less pain and virtually no trauma to surrounding tissue.
