Surgeries & Procedures

Eastport Animal Hospital was founded by Dr. Brian Howard with the goal of offering our patients the highest quality veterinary care possible at a reasonable cost. Our facility has a state-of-the-art surgical suite. We incorporate the latest technologies, equipment, and medical advances, such as digital radiography, ultrasound, sophisticated diagnostic testing, and doppler blood pressure monitoring during procedures. Our highly-skilled and licensed medical staff are committed to making your pet comfortable before, during, and after surgery, and will ensure that pain management is part of the process every step of the way.


Our Surgery and Procedures-Anesthesia Philosophy:

We use only use high-quality, low-risk anesthesia to ensure the safety of your pet. Prior to procedures requiring anesthesia, our patients receive a thorough physical examination and a preoperative blood panel to verify overall health and identify any anesthetic risks.  We are unique in that our hospital does perform more advanced surgeries done by specialists than most general practitioners. If the surgery your pet needs is not listed, please feel free to inquire.
