At North Madison Animal Hospital, our surgical center is staffed by veterinary professionals with extensive experience in providing exotic animals like birds, and reptiles (such as snakes) with surgeries.

What to Expect with Exotic Surgery in Jackson
At North Madison Animal Hospital, our surgical center is equipped with cutting-edge surgical instrumentation and equipment. We do everything we can to understand your exotic pet's needs and conditions to help ensure good outcomes.
Anesthesia & Pain Management
Each patient has an anesthetic plan that is tailored to his or her specific condition. Overall cardiovascular health and lab work are taken into consideration with each pet.
We take extra care to ensure your pet is pain-free during and after surgery often by using a multimodal approach (i.e. local anesthetic, epidural anesthesia, and systemic medications).
Continuous Patient Monitoring
We use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment to monitor your pet’s vitals during surgery.
All of our procedures use strict sterile techniques. This means the room is cleaned after every procedure and our vets also use sterile prep and full surgical attire (sterile gloves, surgical cap, surgical gown).
In laser surgery, a highly focused laser beam can efficiently vaporize living tissue with extreme precision while sealing capillaries, small blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerve endings.
Our veterinary surgeons use surgical lasers which offer significant benefits to patients including reduced pain, bleeding, swelling, and faster recovery.
Once the surgery is complete, your veterinarian will contact you to discuss the procedure and plan.
Some pets can return home the next day while others are required to stay longer. It ultimately depends on the complexity of the procedure and your pet’s health status.
When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will provide you with discharge instructions and answer any questions you have.
