4th Street Pet Hospital offers no-scalpel and radiowave surgery. Our veterinarians will discuss with you whether the procedure your pet requires qualifies for these surgeries, as they offer distinct benefits, including:

  • Decreased post-operative pain, swelling, blood loss, and infection: Radiowave surgery seals nerve endings as it cuts, preventing infectious agents along the length of the incision, while using low-temperatures to prevent tissue destruction.
  • Quicker recovery: With less tissue destruction, healing is hastened and your pet can recover more quickly.
  • Safer than laser surgery: There are no safety hazards involved with radiowave technology, and radiowave surgery does not burn the tissue, unlike laser or high-temperature electrosurgery.

While our veterinarians and technicians perform surgery, this event can be stressful for a pet and owner, but our staff of compassionate and caring professionals keep you informed before, during, and after surgery. The facilities at 4th Street Pet Hospital not only provide exceptional surgical expertise but also compassionate postoperative care, managing any pain and providing rehabilitation your pet may need. We are here throughout the entire process, addressing any concerns and answering the questions you may have.

We believe that pets heal better when they are in a comfortable environment, and we strive to get your pet home as soon as possible! We will review postoperative care and medication instructions with you. Contact us at (727) 289-7190 if any problems arise or if you have questions. We are always just a phone call away!

If your pet requires surgery, or you are a current client whose pet may require surgery, rest assured knowing that your pet will be cared for no matter how minor or complex the procedure. We treat every patient with the utmost compassion, care, and medical expertise!
