How is my pet cared for during surgery?
Before the surgery, our team will run tests to ensure your pet can undergo the procedure. Pre-anesthetic testing gives us the chance to catch underlying health issues that could complicate the surgery. We move ahead with the procedure once your pet is given a clean bill of health.
Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures is extremely important to us. Our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians are skilled in using anesthesia and monitoring patients to ensure their safety and provide the most comfortable experience. You can be confident that we use the most effective and up-to-date protocols. The type of anesthesia we use depends on the procedure. Some require general anesthesia, while others may only call for local anesthesia. We also closely monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it's routine or more advanced. A veterinary technician will continually assess your pet's heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk.
