One of the most important parts of any veterinary hospital is the experience and skill of the veterinarian and their surgery area. Dr. Christie McHughes has practiced veterinary medicine for over ten years, and has successfully performed thousands of surgeries during that time. The surgical suite at Crosspoint includes all of the most advanced surgical and monitoring tools available. If your pet requires a surgical procedure, they will be in capable and caring hands at Crosspoint Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. McHughes performs a variety of surgical events, ranging from spays and neuters to general surgery. Pets under her care are recommended to have blood work prior to the surgery to determine if they are healthy enough to undergo the surgical process. Animals feel pain in the same manner as people, so medication is provided prior to the operation to keep them as comfortable as possible. Your furry family member is constantly observed by carefully monitoring their heart rate, blood pressure and vital signs. Upon completion, we continue to monitor their progress as they recover and medications are administered as necessary. Finally, you will be contacted when your pet is in a condition to return home to be with you.
Dr. McHughes and her experienced staff have successfully performed many surgeries, and will bring that same level of expertise and compassion to your pet. Call Crosspoint Veterinary Hospital for your pet’s surgical needs.
