We provide a large variety of surgical procedures at our clinic. Our veterinarians and staff understand how difficult it is to leave your pet with us for any procedure involving anesthesia and surgery. At our hospital, every patient is closely monitored by a veterinary technician using both their trained skills and state-of-the-art technology measuring ECG, blood pressure, temperature, pulse oximetry, and end-tidal CO2. Every surgical case is examined prior to surgery and pre-anesthetic bloodwork appropriate to the patient’s age and health are performed to adjust anesthetic protocols as needed. Each pet recovers from anesthesia under direct observation until they are fully awake.
Balanced anesthesia, using smaller doses of multiple anesthetic agents, provides smoother induction and recovery while minimizing side-effects. Pain management is an absolute priority for our patients. When used before, during and after a procedure, pain relief not only makes the experience much better for your pet, it lowers the amount of anesthetic drugs needed.
If a patient’s needs involve expertise or equipment which is outside our comfort zone, then we are quick to recommend referral to an appropriate specialist or institution. We believe that, through knowing our strengths in general practice, we can meet the needs of our patients and clients in the safest possible way.
