Your Pet's Surgery

Your Pet's Surgery We know that any surgical procedure, no matter how minor, can be stressful for you and your pet. It is our goal to make every procedure as safe and comfortable as possible for your pet. As part of this, we use the latest anesthetic procedures during each surgery to ensure that your pet is free of pain. Prior to every surgery and dental procedure, we perform pre-anesthetic bloodwork in order to detect any pre-existing condition that may complicate the use of anesthesia. This helps us tailor an anesthetic protocol that is specifically designed for your pet.

During surgery, we use advanced monitoring equipment to monitor your pet's vital signs. One of our veterinary technicians is on hand during every procedure to assist our veterinarians and keep close watch on your pet.

Pets feel pain just as people do. Pain management is an important part of our operative protocol. All surgical patients are provided with pain medication during and following surgery; we will send pain medication home with your pet should he or she require it. The less pain your pet is in, the faster he or she recovers.
