We understand that you want the best for your pet. Surgical procedures are no exception. Here at Marina Bay Animal Hospital your pet gets the one on one attention during surgery and recovery that you would want from your own doctor. Due to the high volume of surgical appointment requests, we recommend contacting us at least 2 – 3 weeks in advance for any appointment requests, especially particular doctor requests. Currently we schedule 2 – 4 surgeries a day Monday through Friday, ensuring that your pet has the attention and care it deserves while here for it’s procedure.
When your pet comes in for it’s elected surgery, your doctor will do a complete physical examination as well as a CBC (blood panel). This allows our doctors to make sure your pet is healthy and will alert us to any potential problems your pet may experience while under anesthesia. Depending on many factors, such as your pet’s age, breed, or general health, your doctor may recommend more extensive bloodwork for the safety of your pet.
Typical surgical and anesthetic procedures performed in our hospital are:
- Dental cleaning and extractions
- Reproductive surgeries such as spay and neuter
- Emergency, trauma & wound repair

The surgeries listed above are by no means all inclusive. Marina Bay Animal Hospital offers many more surgical options upon necessity. Please feel free to contact our hospital with any questions.
We take pride in our state of the art equipment. Keeping up to date with medical technology means your pet gets the most accurate and modern care available. Some technologies we utilize are:
ECG Machine: A completely non invasive device which allows our surgical team to view an electrical ‘picture’ of the heart.
Pulse Oximeter. This is a sensory clip which placed on the tongue during surgery. This clip gives your surgical team an audible heartbeat as well as oxygen saturation during surgery.
Surgical Biopsies: In the event that further testing is necessary, our doctors may recommend that a biopsy be taken and sent to an outside lab. This lets our doctors assess proper future treatment.
