Our veterinarian performs many soft tissue procedures while our veterinary technicians closely monitor your pet from start to finish. Our committed team is trained to minimize risks and maximize surgical outcomes in every cat or dog surgery.
Making Safety Our Priority
Almost every pet will go through surgery at least one time in their lives. Often, it is a routine spay or neuter, mass removal, or a foreign body removal. Regardless of your pet’s need, we perform the same safety precautions with every single cat or dog surgery.
- Safety begins with pre-anesthetic blood work and a physical exam. This is a required step. It allows us to check for underlying issues that could interfere with the anesthesia.
- Once your pet is cleared, our skilled technicians administer the anesthesia, under veterinary supervision, to your pet. We determine the appropriate anesthesia based on their age, breed, size, and health condition.
- We set your pet up with an IV catheter that provides fluid therapy. This keeps them hydrated and regulates their blood pressure.
- Our technicians monitor your pet’s blood pressure, heart rate and rhythm, pulse oximetry, respiration rate, body temperature, and more with advanced equipment. We cover every detail and even have dedicated staff who stay with your pet as they wake up from the anesthesia.
