Veterinary Surgical Services

At the Animal Medical Center of Fort Sheridan, we offer a wide range of surgical services for dogs and cats.  We carefully screen each pet prior to surgery and anesthetics are specifically tailored to each pet.  The surgical procedures we perform include:

  • Spay and neuter surgery
  • Laceration repairs
  • Growth excisions
  • Oral/periodontal surgery
  • Minor orthopedic surgery
  • General surgery including abdominal explorations and bladder/lower urinary tract surgery
  • Hernia repair
  • Caesarian section

Our surgical services and facilities include:

  • Fully trained veterinary and technical staff monitoring for your pet throughout the procedure
  • Heated surgery tables for greater comfort
  • Advanced sterilization techniques
  • Digital monitors including ECG and oxygen saturation monitors
  • Personalized after-surgery care and pre-anesthetic blood testing

Before any anesthetic procedure or surgery, we will ensure your pet is an acceptable candidate to undergo anesthesia by doing a thorough physical exam and pre-surgical blood testing.  During surgery, your pet is closely monitored by a knowledgeable, well-trained technician who is also aided by digital monitoring equipment.  IV fluid therapy and thermoregulation is provided for all surgical patients.  Comprehensive pain management is utilized before, during and after your pet’s surgical procedure to keep them as comfortable as possible. We will always communicate with you after surgery to keep you fully informed about your pet’s surgery, progress and recovery.  Please ask a technician or veterinarian if you have any questions regarding your pet or their surgery.

These professionals have been like Angels to our family. They have taken care of our sweet old boy Karma. They have given tirelessly of themselves during the pandemic and I am so happy we found a Vet that I truly trust and appreciate. 10/10 would reccomend!

The doctor was very helpful and friendly. He was able to provide me with education about my dog in a very easy to understand manner. The price was great and the location is amazing. I will definitely be taking my dog here while we are stationed in Illinois.

Jeff Kordell is the best vet! I have been a pet owner for about two years now. When I first got my dog I went to 7 different vets before a friend told me about AMC. This office is an hour away from my house and is SO worth the drive! The office is very clean and the staff is wonderful. If you are looking for a vet that truly loves animals, look no further!

This is the only place I ever would trust my animals- Dr. Kordell has taken care of my dogs like they are his own. Dr. Spector has two of my dogs in her care for congestive heart failure and the whole team, including the techs are amazing.
