We offer many different surgical services ranging from routine surgery (spay/neuter) to more advanced surgery (bloat). We occasionally refer patients to board certified surgeons for complex operations. Before surgery we perform a physical examination with both the Veterinarian and Registered Veterinary Technician and take pre-surgical blood work. Based on the exam and blood work results, each pet gets a customized anesthetic plan. During surgery your pet is monitored from beginning to end by one of our RVT's and hooked up to an anesthetic monitoring machine that measures oxygen saturation, blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, and EKG. Your pet will also be given IV fluids through a catheter during the anesthetic which helps to maintain blood pressure and perfusion of vital organs. Your pet is continuously monitored by our RVT's until they are recovered/awake from surgery. Appropriate pain medications are given before, during and after surgery that best meets your pets needs.
