Our surgeons are proficient in a variety of surgical procedures ranging from routine spays and neuters to complex laparotomies. You can be confident knowing that your pet is in adept and caring hands.
Prior to every procedure, your pet is placed in a padded cage with water where they can be monitored. Full physical exams and blood work are performed before every procedure to ensure your pet's health and tolerance of the anesthetics. The anesthetics used will be adjusted pending your pet's age, health condition, and blood work results. Prior to being anesthetized patients are walked outside to be given a chance to relieve themselves if needed.
During procedures, tables are well padded underneath patients to avoid any discomfort from lying on hard table surfaces. Heating blankets are also provided during procedures and recovery to ensure proper temperatures are maintained and reduce any discomfort associated with recovering from anesthesia. IV catheters are placed and IV fluids run for the duration of the procedure and recovery. IV fluids help support healthy metabolic functions enabling your pet to recover faster with fewer inhibitions caused by anesthesia. IV catheters also give our staff quick access to aid your pet if a crisis were to arise.
During recovery, your pet is placed on a padded area with a heating blanket and closely monitored by a dedicated staff member frequently taking vitals and adjusting their environment as needed. Once pets are recovered, they are taken out for a second walk and given a small meal. Owners are informed of the status of their pet upon recovery and given a discharge time. Some pets are routinely kept overnight for proper rest and monitoring pending the procedure performed.
Owners are encouraged to call with any questions or concerns or if they would like additional updates on their pet's status.
We also work closely with a variety of the best surgical specialists that we will refer out to if it is in your pet's best interest.
Your pet's health and care is our top priority.
