Surgical Referral Services

WELCOME!

We strive to make your referral appointment as stress-free as possible.
We understand that this unexpected issue may be upsetting to you and your pet,
but we hope that you will get the answers and solutions that are needed to ease your mind.

Your veterinarian has referred you to our office for Dr. Montgomery's surgical and referral services.
They will be sending us a referral form with information about you and your pet.

Expect a call from us within a few days after we receive this form.

What to do the night before

Your pet should not eat the night before their appointment after midnight.
Water is fine, even in the morning. This is in case your pet has to be sedated for any reason.  
Do not administer pain medications 12 hours before your appointment time so we can better assess your pet's pain level.

Please bring with you

  1. Your pet’s medications

  2. Copies of your pet’s x-rays (if applicable)

  3. A single serving meal (if staying the night)

If you cannot make your appointment, please contact our office at least 24 hours in advance. There may be a charge for no-shows.
Please note that you might have to wait a bit longer than normal to be seen due to the unpredictable nature of referral appointments.

Payment is expected at time of service

Our consultation fee is $135.00. This fee will be applied towards your surgical cost if surgery is performed or scheduled that day.
The consultation fee does not include the cost of any additional sedation, x-rays, or medications.
An estimate of these procedures will be given to you for consent prior to being performed.

What is a board certified Veterinary surgeon?


Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine utilizes the body’s own cells to heal and regenerate damaged tissues in acute and chronic conditions.

What is Regenerative Medicine?

Osteoarthritis, Acute and Chronic Soft Tissue Injuries, Tendon Injuries, Ligament Injuries, Muscle Injuries, and Certain Spinal Conditions.

What Can Regenerative Medicine be Used for?


Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

A highly concentrated blood sample that contains platelets and plasma. When used as a therapy, PRP can help regenerate and heal tissues.

A small amount of blood is taken from your dog and is processed using a specialized system that concentrates the platelets and plasma. Once it is processed, it is injected directly into the area of injury. It recruits cells to an area of injury to clean up dead and injured cells. They release proteins called, “Growth Factors,” which are responsible for tissue regeneration.

Every dog’s response to therapy will be different. Therapeutic effects last between 6-12 months for dogs with mild to moderate osteoarthritis.

What kind of results can be expected?

 

Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) Stem Cells

Stem cells have the ability to differentiate into any type of cell. They can also activate other surrounding stem cells and recruit additional cell types to aid in wound healing and tissue repair.

A small amount of bone marrow is collected from the femur while the dog is under general anesthesia. It is then processed using a specialized system that isolates and concentrates the stem cells. Once the processing is complete, the stem cells are then directly injected into the area of injury.

Every dog’s response to therapy will be different. Therapeutic effects last over 12 months with one treatment of stem cells for dogs with moderate to severe osteoarthritis.
