Dr. Zickmann takes great pride in the surgical department of Lebanon Veterinary Hospital. We provide a variety of surgical services and use high quality instruments to ensure the safety of your pet. For all of our surgeries, we recommend pre-surgical blood work for our pets, and require it for pets that are middle-aged or older.
The Day of Surgery
The team at Lebanon Veterinary Hospital strives to make the day of surgery as stress-free as possible for both you and your pet. Our pre-surgical blood work can be done right in-house for your convenience. Your pet will be dropped off on the morning of surgery and given a sedative right away to ensure that they stay calm and rested before the procedure.. This has proven to eliminate much needless stress.
During surgery, your pet will be connected to a monitoring system to track their vital signs, checking heart, respirations, blood pressure, core body temperature and more. A veterinary technician is assigned to monitoring your pet throughout the entire surgical procedure, to ensure their safety.
Once the surgical procedure has been completed, you will get a call or a text message to let you know that your pet’s surgery has been completed. We will estimate a pick-up time for you that evening. When you arrive, a technician will meet with you to discuss the surgery as well as any follow-up care that may be required, such as:
- Follow-up visit
- Suture removal
After this meeting, your pet will be released to your care. Our team is committed to calling you within a couple of days of the surgery to make sure your pet’s recovery is going well.
The team at Lebanon Veterinary Hospital is dedicated to high-quality veterinary care and client education. We would be glad to answer any questions you may have about your pet’s surgery needs or surgical recovery. Please contact us and we’ll be happy to speak with you about your concerns.
Been to the vet many times with all my furry friends Dr.Z is amazing always able to patch up all wounds and make all feel well and the office staff is very good at making all visits when needed. all and all the whole staff is very helpful and caring I would never trust my animals with anyone but Lebanon Vet.

The staff was very easy going and friendly. The Vet listened to me, didn't make me feel rushed, and was very good with my large pit/ mastiff that most people muzzle at first sight even though he is a marshmallow. He worked with us to treat our older dog in a way that was in our dogs best interest, and worked for us as a family without pushing any extras. I will be switching all my pets here!

Dr.Z and staff are the best knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring.
When we visit LVH I know my fur baby is getting the best care around.
Thank you Dr.Z and staff for your dedication.

In my 50 years of having indoor family animals or outdoor farm family (and wildlife too!) I have never had a more brilliant, caring, thoughtful, honest and educating veterinarian like Dr. Zickman. Cindy and all of his staff have always been so accommodating and caring, as if we are their own family members. I will forever be grateful and never leave here.

I have been taking my babies to Lebanon Veterinary Hospital for the past 10 years. I have had pets all of my life and I have never dealt with a better staff. Everyone there is very compassionate and very knowledgeable. The facility itself is extremely warming and the technology is modern. I am SO pleased to bring my babies there.

We Love our Vet! The staff here understand that these are not our pets, but cherished members of our families. My human kids needed a great pediatrician, my harry kids need a great Vet. We have that here, and I can't begin to tell you the trust we have in Lebanon Veterinary Hospital.

Very professional and caring. My "senior citizen" kitty Regis was given excellent care, and is happy back at home now.

I had my first visit last week and was extremely pleased with the serice I received. Everyone was friendly and answered all my questions. I am looking forward to having my dogs taken care of by all those who work at Lebanon Veterinary Hospital.

This hospital has been nothing but friendly and considerate. They have been there when I needed them and when I called after hours they still answered the phone. I will always take my furbabies to them. Dr Zickmann and the office staff are great.
