ANESTHESIA & GENERAL SURGERY
The first step in performing a surgery is the completion of the patient's bloodwork. This consists of a CBC and a blood chemistry profile. The CBC is required for all surgery patients. We always recommend having a blood chemistry done, however there are circumstances when a client can opt out of having it done. After the blood results are checked by our doctors and technicians, your pet will proceed to surgery.
The second step to every surgical procedure is anesthesia. Each patient is given a pre-anesthetic injection. This will relax the patient and take away any anxiety. Every patient is monitored throughout their surgery. Monitoring of anesthesia is done by our team of the veterinarians and registered technicians. We have scheduled maintenance done on our anesthesia machines so we may provide the safest anesthesia possible. After your pet's surgery is completed, your pet is recovered from the anesthesia. While back in their cage, our patients stay warm and cozy with our bean-bag warmers and blankets.
The third step is the actual surgery. Our doctors perform common surgeries such as spays and neuters for both dogs and cats. They also perform tumor removals, cystotomies, laceration repairs, amputations, and eye procedures, such as cherry eye repairs, entropion repairs, and enucleations. Our surgery patients are given 100% of our attention during the pre-medication phase, anesthesia, surgery, and recovery. We strive to make your pet's surgery a positive experience for your pet and you (Mom & Dad).
