We use of state-of-the-art medical technologies for superior surgical care for your pet!

Happy Tails Pet Hospital understands the stress and anxiety you and your pet feel if they need surgery.  Our experienced, professional staff will treat your pet with the utmost care and compassion.  Dr. Dan has extensive surgical experience and all of us will care for your pet as if he or she were our own.

It is important to us to provide individual, compassionate pre and post-surgical care for each patient. Therefore, we will communicate with you through every step of your pet’s surgical procedure to keep you fully informed, as well as address any questions or concerns you may have, including those regarding the surgical techniques used, pain management, and/or post-operative care.

General surgical procedures performed at Happy Tails Pet Hospital include:

  • Spay, Neuter
  • Soft tissue/general surgery (i.e., growth removal)
  • Emergency surgery (wound repair, laceration repair, foreign object removal)
  • Dental surgical procedures, such as tooth extraction

We recommend pre-surgical blood work so we can evaluate your pet’s kidney, liver and heart function prior to undergoing anesthesia. This will also help determine the anesthetic drugs and doses Dr. Dan will use on your loved one.

Anesthesia and Patient Monitoring

Anesthesia Monitoring.  We use a state of the art machine for monitoring your pet’s electrocardiogram, blood pressure, respiration, heart rate activity, oxygen saturation and core body temperature during all surgical procedures.

Blood Pressure Monitoring.  Accurate blood pressure monitoring allows us to assess your pet’s condition while under anesthesia. It will detect hypertension or hypotension and evaluate critically ill pets.

Pain Management

Your pet’s comfort is very important to us.  Comprehensive pain management is utilized before, during and after your pet’s surgical procedure to keep them as comfortable as possible.  We will also provide you with pain medication for your pet when he or she is ready to leave the hospital.

We love Dr. Jess and staff! As a breeder it is very important to have a good connection with the vet you work with on a regular basis. Dr. Jess always makes it a priority to have a great connection with you and your pet, she gets down on their level and interacts with them making the visit a very positive experience for both the owner and pet. She is very knowledgeable and I fully trust the advice she gives is what's best for my pets. Dr. Jess really has a passion for what she does and it shows every time we are in the office.

No other place better to take your dogs. We’ve taken all of our 24 dogs over the years there! Never had a problem. Vets are compassionate and the techs show nothing but love to your animals, as if they were taking care of their own.

I have nothing but great things to say about HT. We first started to bring our new dog out there after being referred to them by a friend. They have helped our dog through many issues (that were/are caused by overbreeding). And they even saved her life when she fell deathly ill and had to have emergency surgery.
