A Full Range of Expert Veterinary Surgery Services Graphic Accent

Gulford-Jamestown Veterinary Hospital

No surgery is routine at Guilford-Jamestown Veterinary Hospital. We treat every single surgical procedure, from spays and neuters all the way to tumor removal, with the same meticulous attention and care.

No matter what the surgery, we take all the same careful precautions, including the use of an IV line and constant monitoring of blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, and oxygen, as well as providing your pet with a warm blanket for optimal comfort during and after the procedure.

Our veterinarians are skilled in performing traditional operations as well as more advanced procedures, such as laser surgery. Some of the typical surgeries we perform include:

Traditional surgery:

  • Orthopedics
  • Dental surgery
  • Exploratory
  • Soft tissue
  • Eyes
  • C-sections

Laser surgery:

  • Tumor removal
  • Declaws
  • Spays
  • Neuters
  • Ear Surgery
  • Oral Surgery

Benefits of Laser Surgery For Your Pet

Our hospital strives to remain at the forefront of the profession when it comes to new and better treatments for our animal patients. Laser surgery is less invasive than traditional surgery and offers a quicker recovery time for your pet. Compared to traditional surgery, laser surgery offers many advantages, including:

  • Reduced pain
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Reduced risk of infection
  • Quicker recovery time

More on Safety & Specialty Referrals

Pets requiring surgery of any kind receive pre-operative blood work and diagnostic screening as necessary. This helps to prevent unnecessary complications due to unknown internal issues. Patients also receive pain medication before, during, and after surgery to ensure the utmost comfort from start to finish. Trained staff members {link to Staff page} are with your pet throughout the entire process, ensuring your pet’s health and well-being every step of the way.

Finally, we are also fortunate to be located next door to a first-rate veterinary specialty clinic. In some cases, we refer our patients to our neighbor when we feel a specialist is best suited to perform the surgery.

For over 20 years, we have been clients at Guilford Jamestown Veterinary Hospital. While a lot of things have changed in 20 years, one thing has remained the same. Dr. Karen Kennedy and her unparalleled team of doctors continue to provide stellar service to our family of pets. We cannot thank them enough for all the love and care they have shown our family over the years.
The Payne Family

Everyone at the practice from the veterinarians to the technicians to the front office staff know you and your pet by name even before you check in. It’s a little like being Norm on Cheers.

We’ve been bringing our pets to GJVH since 1989 for top notch veterinary care. Now that we live across town, it’s not as convenient, but the quality care and helpful staff keep us coming back.

I sometimes think my dogs get better medical care at GJVH than I do at my doctor’s office. From the courteous front desk staff to the friendly technicians to the terrific veterinary care – I know my dogs get better medical care than I do!
