Our veterinarians perform general surgery at our facility every weekday morning. We commonly perform ovariohysterectomies (spays), neuters, growth removals, cystotomies (bladder stone removal), and other soft tissue surgeries.
We recommend lab work prior to many procedures to help provide the highest level of safety during and after the anesthesia. The lab work recommended varies due to the age and medical history of the pet.
In addition, our patients are monitored by Certified or Licensed Veterinary Technicians and modern equipment including ECG, pulse oximeter, esophageal temperature, CO2, blood pressure and respiration monitors. Patients are kept at optimum body temperature with a warm water blanket placed underneath and a warm air unit over the top of them. Patients are also safeguarded with an IV catheter and fluid support.
