Surgery for a dog or cat is never something that is met with upbeat anticipation. The cost, the potential trauma, the recovery and the uncertainty create a perfect storm for anxiety — for the animal and the pet owner.
At Dr. Kelly’s Surgical Unit, we understand. And, we do our best to foster a caring environment that puts animals and their owners at ease, because sometimes surgery is unavoidable.
People who have visited Dr. Kelly’s for surgeries their dogs or cats have needed have come away from the experience and offered positive feedback, noting how comfortable the staff made them feel, how affordable the prices for surgery are, and how willing the staff is to do the work — effectively — that other veterinary clinics may not be able or willing to to.
“It’s an awful feeling when a furry family member needs major surgery and it is so costly that the worst option is offered as an alternative,” Rhonda S., a Dr. Kelly’s client, said in a review on Facebook. “Our cat, Tony, needed his leg amputated and thankfully we found Dr Kelly’s and they were able to perform the surgery at 1/3 the cost, including meds and follow-up care. The staff was amazing, responsive, attentive and so caring. I can’t thank Dr. Kelly’s enough, because they gave Tony a second chance at living a full life.”
Tony’s experience is one we work to replicate over and over for other pets and their owners. It really is why we do what we do. We firmly believe that the cost of surgery for a pet should not be out of reach for owners, and since we specialize in it, we’re able to pass the cost savings we experience on to pet owners.
By specializing in providing surgical care for pets, our mobile units and standalone clinics operate with a lower overhead than most veterinary clinics. And, the efficiency of our process — from intake to surgery to recovery — decreases the time an animal needs professional care, which also creates a cost savings. At Dr. Kelly’s, our ultimate goal has always been to provide expert care at an affordable price so the cost of pet ownership is less of a burden.
And, if a procedure is more affordable, we like to think that pet owners would initiate getting the care their dog or cat needs.
Our efficiencies and commitment to care extend beyond surgery. We often communicate with our pet owners by phone or text before, during and after a procedure, answering questions along the way, and we provide detailed after-care instructions while remaining available for questions and concerns as they arise — whether a surgery was planned or became necessary as the result of an emergency.
“Precious, my mini pin, was bitten by a big dog while on a walk. He broke her arm in a bad spot. Searching around for help, I found Dr Kelly’s surgical unit. They were so kind, cost efficient and did a fantastic job,” Ian D., a Dr. Kelly’s client, said in a Google review. “Precious is doing so much better now. Thank you so much Dr Kelly.”
