At Winnetka Animal Hospital, the highest level of care is taken during every surgical procedure. With years of knowledge and surgical action under their belts, our veterinarians ensure the comfort and safety of your pet.

With our first-rate anesthetic and monitoring equipment, we are able to monitor your pet’s vital signs and manage any pain throughout the entire procedure. Each pet is unique, which is why Winnetka Animal Hospital has trained anesthesiologists on staff to adhere to the comfort of your pet. Monitoring your pet does not stop at the end of the procedure, as we provide veterinary technicians to watch over your pet through the entire recovery process.

Winnetka Animal Hospital offers an Ellman Radiosurgical unit, which will provide the utmost comfort, health, and happiness for your pet. The radiowave technology provides several benefits, including the use of less anesthesia, a shorter recovery period, and minimizing the chance of necrosis and burning. Using radiowaves rather than a scalpel or laser surgery allows for the reduction of blood loss, pain, swelling, and the chance for infection.

  • Radiowave Surgery
  • Spay and Neuter
  • Biopsies and Histopathology

We will work with you to examine your pet’s medical state, discuss treatment options, and map out a clear plan that suits the needs of both you and your pet.
