Pet Surgery: Top Surgical Care for Auburn Pets

Almost every pet goes through surgery. In fact, their first one is likely a spay or neuter procedure while they are still quite young. After that, a number of health circumstances could warrant another pet surgery. At PetVet Animal Health Center, we offer the pets of Auburn top surgical equipment and technology, all handled by our skilled veterinarians.

What to Expect in the Procedure

Your pet’s safety is our top priority from start to finish. Before each surgery, we perform blood work and a physical exam. This ensures your pet has no hidden complications that would affect anesthesia. Furthermore, we strive to make your pet as comfortable as possible with pain management. Nerve blocks and systemic pain medications are administered before surgery so the effects are already in place the moment your pet wakes up.

Pet surgery is often an outpatient procedure, meaning you can take your pet home the same day of surgery. However, we do recommend hospitalization for some more involved surgeries. This allows us to provide stronger pain medication and IV fluid support that are needed in some cases.

Get in touch with us today for more information on our pet surgery services and procedures.


The clinic has separate rooms for cats and dogs, and the tables are heated with little indents. My cat was so relaxed and made the experience so much easier. The staff is also kind and gentle! I highly recommend them!!!!

I loved my experience at PetVet. As it was my first visit here, I was very satisfied. Dr. Brawner was very thorough with every concern that I had.

This is by far the best place to take your pet! They do not rush through the exam, they take their time to explaining things to you, they go over all of your options for different situations and never pressure you into anything. We trust them wholeheartedly; no one compares to the doctors and staff here. Thank you guys for all you do!

Dr. Brawner and the whole staff are FANTASTIC! My Paisley girl loves them (probably because they always give her treats) and they do a wonderful job of calming this helicopter dog mom down! Only place I'd trust to take care of my babies!

Staff was so friendly. Called in the early afternoon and was able to make an appointment the same day. Staff made sure we understood everything that was going on with our dog and helped us get our boy better.

I went to Dr. Brawner and PetVet while I lived in Auburn. After moving to Birmingham my English Bulldog needed a tail amputation. I didn't hesitate to drive back to Auburn so Dr. Brawner could perform the surgery. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Best Vet in Alabama in my opinion!

-John V.

These people are amazing. I would recommend them to anyone. Ive been using them for over 2 years and they are very nice, respectful, and positive about everything.

-Payton Y.

The staff is so sweet! Dr Brawner did an amazing job with our kitty surgery & we couldn't be more pleased. He was so kind, definitely impressed with the phone calls after the surgery to keep me updated. Would definitely go back!
