Surgery

All patients are carefully screened for safety and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include fully trained veterinary and technical staff to ensure the safest, most efficient anesthetic procedure. We use various heating sources to help temperature regulation; advanced sterilization techniques; machines that monitor oxygen saturation, EKG, blood pressure, temperature and end tidal CO2; intensive after surgery care and the ability to do complete in-house blood testing. We also offer referrals to many specialized board certified surgeons. Some of the surgeries we offer include spays, neuters, declaws, cruciate repairs, ear crops, tail docks, tumor removals, dewclaw removals, vet stem therapy, and c-sections.

To ensure the safest possible anesthesia all patients are carefully screened and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. As a result, anesthesia is not the same for every patient. A thorough physical exam is done on each patient and pre-anesthetic bloodwork is required. The proper anesthesia for a patient is chosen based on the type of procedure being done, their bloodwork results, if there are any pre-existing conditions or a past history of anesthetic problems, the patient’s age and breed. All patients are pre-medicated with the appropriate medications, given an injectable anesthetic and the lowest gas anesthetic level possible to ensure safety. All of our patients receive pain control; tailored to the needs of the specific patient. Pre-medication(s), oral pain medication(s), local blocks and IV drips are all things that can be used to make sure our patients are kept comfortable and pain-free. Our anesthesia machines are checked daily by trained staff and are serviced by a company yearly to ensure we are providing the best anesthetic experience for all of our patients.

Surgical services and facilities include fully trained veterinary and technical staff to ensure the safest, most efficient anesthetic procedure. We use various heating sources to help maintain body temperature because hypothermia is a concern with all patients under anesthesia. A trained assistant or registered technician is continually monitoring each patient throughout the procedure, as well as having equipment that monitor oxygen saturation, EKG, blood pressure, temperature and carbon dioxide levels. An intravenous catheter is placed in every patient and IV fluids are administered using an IV pump during the procedure and through recovery. This maintains blood pressure, keeps the patient hydrated and gives the staff direct IV access if any emergency medications are needed.

We also use advanced sterilization techniques; intensive after surgery care and the ability to do complete in-house blood testing. When appropriate, we also offer referrals to specialized board certified surgeons. Some of the surgeries we offer include spays, neuters, declaws, cruciate repairs, ear crops, tail docks, tumor removals, dewclaw removals, stem-cell therapy and c-sections. The quality of anesthesia and surgeries can vary from hospital to hospital. We try to provide the most current, safest and best anesthesia possible for all patients, carefully screening for safety and providing anesthesia that is specifically tailored to your pet.
