We require a pre-surgical appointment where we will discuss the procedure and explain all options available for the health and safety of your pet. We will address any concerns you may have, administer a complete physical exam, and draw blood for analysis. At this time it is also advisable to consider other minor procedures performed while under anesthesia, such as dentistry, ear cleaning, or microchip identification.
Today's modern anesthetic monitors have made surgery much safer than in the past. We adjust the amount and type of anesthetic used depending on the health, age and weight of your pet. For most procedures your pet will have an IV catheter along with fluids administered during surgery. This helps your pets recovery and provides a additional level of safety.Read more: Surgical Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)s
