Pet Surgery and pain management

At some point in your pet's life, he or she may need surgery. From spay and neutering to dental cleanings and other surgical procedures – we offer many of them here at Lenoir City Animal Clinic.

If your pet needs surgery, it's natural to have questions. We want you to know with confidence that you are making the best decision for your pet's health. Our experienced veterinarians perform various surgeries throughout the week, from low-cost spays and neuters to orthopedics.

Along with taking every step to make pet surgery as safe and pain-free as possible, we also aim to make it as affordable as possible. For any questions or concerns, we recommend that you consult with our team to put your mind at ease.

the importance of Pain Management

Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind. That’s why pain management is among our primary considerations when we are treating a pet for any medical condition.

Our approach to pain management involves anticipating potentially painful procedures and taking steps to manage pain from the outset as well as continuing to manage pain throughout your pet’s treatment and recovery process. Our staff of compassionate, caring professionals is skilled in recognizing signs of pain in animals and developing an individualized plan for managing pain in our patients.

From routine procedures like spays or dental cleanings, to more advanced medical treatments and chronically painful conditions, such as arthritis or back pain, we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient. We will also help you recognize signs of pain in your pet so that we can modify his or her pain management plan when necessary.

Recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of quality, compassionate patient care. We don’t take pain management for granted and will employ all our skills to help ensure your pet’s comfort, well-being, and full recovery.

What others say about our animal clinic...

Thank you to the staff of LCAC. I met Deb at the front desk 6 years ago when I moved here and she greeted me such enthusiasm and kindness. Yesterday I walked in with my 14 year old Samoyed to have the doctor “let him go peacefully.“ Deb greeted me with tears in her eyes and a huge hug. She loved on my dog Boots and told him to go play in heaven with her dog Beans. Dr. Myers came in and gently did what needed to done. It is always painful to say goodbye- but it was so much easier being there with this great group of caring people.

We love it here! My cat is a 12-year old demon that does not do well at the Veterinarians. The staff is patient, kind and gentle with her. This starts from scheduling our appointment later in the day so we can premedicate her to wrapping her in a blanket to draw her blood. This place is amazing. Your fur babies will love it.

The best veterinarians in the local area. We've used them for nearly 30 years and never been unhappy. They treat our four legged babies as if they were their own.

This is the first stop for me and my animals when I need the very best in care. I have used Dr. Gordon & Dr. Bradbury for over 40 years with no regrets what so ever. They are my A Team when I need the best of attention for my large & small animals. Thanks also for a great staff to deal with in your office, you are the best.
