From Simple Sugical Procedures to Highly Complex

No matter how minor or major the surgery, the team at Bluegrass Veterinary Specialists + Animal Emergency approaches it with the same careful preparation and meticulous attention to detail. In every case, we take rigorous precautions to ensure your pet’s safety in the operating room, and give you the peace of mind of knowing your pet is in the hands of a proven professional using advanced surgical procedures.

Pets requiring surgery will receive pre-operative blood work and diagnostic screening as necessary. They will also receive pain medication before, during and after surgery to keep them feeling as comfortable as possible.

Procedures Include

  • Soft-tissue surgery – including oncologic, gastrointestinal, urogenital, and cardiothoracic procedures, as well as wound management and skin reconstruction
  • Minimally invasive surgery techniques for gastrointestinal, urogenital, and cardiovascular procedures, as well as fracture repair
  • Orthopedic surgery – Including fracture repairs, joint dislocation repairs, and knee injury repairs through a lateral suture or TPLO (tibial plateau levelling osteotomy) for cruciate rupture and patella luxation repair.
  • Neurologic surgery for herniated intervertebral discs


At no point during your pet’s hospitalization, will they be left unsupervised.  Our specially trained technical staff is in the hospital 24/7 monitoring and administering your pet’s individually customized treatment plan. Our trained staff will communicate directly with you about your pet’s progress and we encourage owner visits.
