What to expect
As with humans, every surgery involves multiple steps and procedures. Throughout the process your pet’s safety and comfort are our priority. From the initial appointment to post-operative recovery, our professional veterinary team is committed to providing your animal companion with the very best care.
Prior to surgery
At our veterinary hospital, preparation for surgery begins during your initial appointment, where we discuss the procedure in depth and its potential benefits.
We also conduct a series of important pre-surgery tests, including:
- Physical exam
- Digital x-rays
On the day of surgery, we also provide your pet with important interventions that help improve his or her comfort during surgery.
- Customized anesthesia
- Individualized pain management medications
We want your pet to remain safe throughout his or her procedure, which is why we provide continuous intraoperative monitoring. One of our licensed veterinary technicians uses the latest cardiovascular equipment to track your pet’s vital signs in real time.
- Heart rate and rhythm
- Respiratory rate
- Blood pressure
- Body temperature
- Oxygen levels
- Carbon dioxide levels
Following surgery we take several steps to help promote a quick and comfortable recovery.
- Pain medications and monitoring at our hospital immediately after surgery
- Education on recovery and care after surgery
- Home program for pain management
- Follow-up appointments to monitor healing and progress
We are committed to providing your pet with the best care. Contact us today to learn more about our surgical services or to schedule an appointment.
