Our team provides medical care with skill and compassion, offering support for both the patient and the pet owner.
Prior to surgery, your pet will receive a full physical exam from our doctors. Pre-surgical blood work will also be performed to help assess your pet’s overall health, determine whether it is safe for your pet to undergo general anesthesia, and let us know whether we need to take any special precautions. The blood work results also allow us to customize your pet’s anesthesia for the safest surgery possible.
We only utilize the safest available anesthetics, especially for our older or high-risk patients. During surgery, your pet’s vital signs are closely monitored. All patients recieve an IV (intravenous) catheter and intravenous fluids to maintain blood pressure and hydration during anesthetic procedures. All of our patients are intubated (given a breathing tube) for surgery and vital signs are closely monitored with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment. This allows us to identify potential complications early and correct them to minimize risk to the patient.
