Your Pet's Surgery Our hospital is well-equipped to perform most minor and major surgical procedures from spays
and neuters to more complicated emergency and soft tissue surgeries. In order to lessen the risk of
anesthetic complications, all patients must be fasted prior to anesthesia. No food after midnight, and only small amounts of water are permitted.

Prior to surgery, each patient receives a thorough physical examination to identify any existing medical conditions that might endanger your pet's health. Because not all problems can be detected on examination, we also strongly encourage pre-anesthetic blood testing. These tests not only give us a more complete picture of your pet's health but also allow us to tailor an anesthetic regime that is specific for your pet. You will have the option to select for pre-anesthetic blood work upon your arrival at the hospital when completing your surgery consent form.

We utilize extensive anesthetic monitoring devices including Doppler blood pressure, pulse oximetry and other cardiac monitoring equipment. All patients under anesthesia are continually monitored by a trained veterinary technician.

Pain management is a vital part of our pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative anesthetic and medical protocol. All surgical patients, including those undergoing routine procedures such as ovariohysterectomy (spay) or castrations (neuters), receive pain control medications. We highly recommend "take home" pain medications for after your pet's surgical procedure; it is our goal that your pet be as comfortable as possible during the recovery period. Please speak with a member of our team if you have any further questions or concerns about your pet's surgery. We look forward to seeing you soon, and thank you for entrusting us with the care of your loved companions.
