I’m worried about my pet’s upcoming surgical procedure. What do you do to help ensure your patients’ safety during surgery?

We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery and monitor your pet during surgery. During the procedure, a veterinarian and veterinary technician will continually assess your pet’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs both manually and with the assistance of electronic monitoring equipment to help prevent any anesthetic risk. For your pets safety, patients over 7 years old must have pre-anesthetic bloodwork performed prior to any procedure requiring general anesthesia. We also provide appropriate pain medication prior to most surgical procedures to ensure your pet experiences as little pain/discomfort possible during recovery, however we will also continue to monitor your pet for signs of pain and will administer additional pain management as necessary.
