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:

During surgery

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.
