When your pet needs a surgical procedure, we offer the most advanced surgical care, recovery and pain management for your pet. Types of surgery we perform include:
- Low cost spay
- Low cost neuter
- Emergency surgery (laceration repair, wound repair, foreign object removal)
- Soft tissue/general surgery(i.e., growth removal)
We provide a high level of patient monitoring for all surgeries. We monitor all of your pet’s vital signs with state of the art equipment as well as manual techniques. Pets are monitored during surgery using pulse oximetry, and respiratory monitoring.
Before we begin any operation, all pets are screened through a physical exam and we offer a pre-anesthetic blood test. Analyzing information from the blood test will allow us to determine if it is safe to give your pet anesthesia, and identify any pre-existing medical conditions that should be addressed. Our on-site laboratory allows us to have the results back for many of these tests within an hour.
Once the procedure is completed, we will call you with a status report. When you pick up your pet, the doctor or nurse will review the procedure with you and send you home with easy to understand aftercare instructions. We will call you within a few days to check on your pet and answer any additional questions.
Anesthesia and Pain Management
We believe in maximizing the comfort of your pet before, during and after his/her procedure. Anesthesia and pain management protocols are individually developed for each pet. Proper pain management improves your pet’s recovery and speeds the healing process. We administer medication before beginning the procedure, during the procedure and post-operatively for the comfort of your pet. We use a multi-modal approach to pain management, which means we administer small amounts of different drugs to minimize any pain that your pet might feel. Because we administer lower doses of each individual drug, your pet will experience fewer adverse side effects, more complete pain relief and faster post-operative recovery.
Following your dog or cat’s operation, our staff will go over all discharge instructions and post-operative care with you.
Please call us if you have questions regarding the procedures offered, or our surgical protocols. We would be more than happy to provide you with more information and answer all of your questions or concerns.
