Surgery and Anesthesia

surgery 1Our veterinarians are skilled surgeons dedicated to performing the surgical procedures required for your pet to maintain or regain his/her health. Among our areas of expertise are soft tissue procedures including spays and neuters; mass/tumor removals; abdominal and bladder surgeries; and orthopedic surgeries. We have meticulous protocols in place to ensure your pet’s safety and minimize discomfort before, during and after surgery.

Safety First

We recognize that your pet is a treasured member of your family. In fact, the surgical care we provide for your pet is not unlike the care you would receive in a human hospital. To ensure your pet’s safety, we:

• Perform pre-operative blood testing to be sure your pet’s organs and systems are healthy enough for surgery and recovery.

• Insert intravenous catheters to keep your pet hydrated, maintain a normal blood pressure, administer additional medications when needed, and flush anesthetic medicines out of your pet’s system when the procedure is complete and it is time for him/her to wake up.

• Utilize advanced monitoring equipment throughout the procedure to continuously monitor your pet’s blood pressure, heart rate, the electrical activity of the heart, blood oxygen level, respiration rate and temperature.

When it comes to pain management, we take every possible measure to be sure your pet is comfortable every step of the way. We cater your pet’s pain management plan to his/her specific needs, taking into consideration your pets’ species, age, size, breed, disposition, anxiety level and the procedure he/she is having. The medications we administer before, during and after surgery are the newest and safest available.
