Our Protocols to Ensure a Safer Surgery for Your Pet
Your trust in us to keep your pet safe during any surgical procedure is extremely important to our team. To help increase your dog or cat’s safety during surgery, we abide by the following protocols:
Pre-Anesthetic Exam & Blood Work
First, we evaluate your pet’s health with pre-anesthetic blood work. This helps us screen for illness and assess liver and kidney function, so we can formulate an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet.
IV Catheter Placement
Placing an IV catheter helps our team easily and quickly administer fluids and any necessary medications to your pet during surgery.
We also perform an EKG evaluation to check the condition and function of your pet’s heart.
Continuous Monitoring of Vitals
An experienced staff member will monitor your pet’s vitals using state-of-the-art monitoring equipment.
Keeping Your Pet Warm
While under anesthesia, your pet’s body temperature will drop. To prevent hypothermia, we use warm blankets to maintain a healthy body temperature and keep your pet comfortable.
