Our Facilities

Nunda Veterinary Clinic's state-of-the-art surgical facility ensures that procedures are as safe and efficient as possible. Veterinary technology is advancing at a rapid pace. These advancements, combined with our expertise, greatly reduce the risk for complications and allow us to perform surgical procedures quickly and accurately.

Pre-Surgery Exam

Before your pet undergoes any surgical procedure, he / she is thoroughly examined by a veterinarian. This exam includes a pre-surgical blood screen, which, along with your pet's anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age, determines a unique anesthesia protocol. These tests have the added benefit of establishing a baseline for the comparison of future blood tests, should your pet require any.

Customized Anesthesia For Your Pet

For most surgical procedures, anesthesia is required. While under anesthesia, your pet is continuously monitored by both our staff and specialized anesthesia monitoring technology. Your pet's blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature and oxygen level are all tracked during surgery. We also use a temperature-controlled operating table to assist in maintaining a constant body temperature during the procedure.

Nunda Pet SurgeryPain Management

Just as with humans, pain has many negative effects on pets that go beyond physical discomfort. Pain after surgery can slow healing and worsen diseases like arthritis. And, because our companion friends don't understand why they are experiencing pain, pain can cause behavioral issues and interfere with the bond between you and your pet.

To minimize your pet's discomfort, we typically use a combination of local anesthetics, NSAIDs, and narcotic pain relievers. The exact protocol is tailored to your pet, and depends on a number of factors that are determined by the pre-surgical exam and during the procedure.

Postoperative Care

The amount of time your pet will need to monitored after surgery varies. When your pet is discharged, we will provide you with information on proper home care after surgery. Often, your pet will be prescribed medication; in this case, we will explain how and when to administer it.

Should your pet experience any complications, we are always at your service. We are also available to answer questions after your pet arrives home.

Please contact us at (585) 468-2240 with any questions or concerns following surgery. We are more than happy to help you resolve any concerns you may have.
