Our veterinarians uphold the highest standards of care for all surgical procedures. Our team places the utmost importance on pain management, ensuring that your pet is safe and comfortable during their stay.
Our veterinarians will thoroughly examine your pet, and they will discuss a treatment plan with you that suits you and your pet. A trained veterinary technician is present during the surgical and recovery process for visual monitoring and recording of vital signs such as respiratory rate, heart rate, and temperature.
The majority of our surgeries require general anesthesia, ensuring that your pet will be asleep and pain-free. This reduces patient stress and leads to faster recovery. There are risks associated with general anesthesia. To lower these risks we highly recommend, and in some cases require, blood work which allows us to determine if there are any underlying health issues. We place IV catheters and administer supportive fluids as needed.
Please feel free to ask us about our patient monitoring protocol or any other concerns you might have about your pet’s procedure. We want to make you and your pet as comfortable as possible.
With a few exceptions, surgeries will be followed by a laser treatment to aid in decreasing inflammation and speed up recovery. You can read more about laser therapy in our Laser Therapy link located under services.
