Surgery Preparation and Safety

To decide whether surgery is the right option for your pet, we need to perform an exam and potentially run other tests to make sure we fully understand their condition. From there, we can walk you through all available treatment options. With surgery, we need to be sure that your pet can be anesthetized safely and with minimal risk of complications.

Our protocols for making every surgical procedure as safe as possible include:

  • Tailored pain management and anesthesia to suit your pet’s health and needs
  • Careful monitoring of all vital signs by state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and an experienced veterinary technician
  • The administration of IV fluids to maintain healthy blood pressure and hydration
  • The administration of pain relief medication before, during, and after your pet’s surgery
  • Using warm blankets to prevent hypothermia and keep your pet comfortable in recovery
  • Continuous monitoring of your pet while they recover from surgery
  • Providing you with clear and detailed post-op care instructions
