Surgery

Routine spays and neuters, declaw and dental prophylaxis as well as more complex soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries are regularly performed in our surgery suite.

During each surgical procedure, our patients receive the safest anesthesia, intravenous fluids, as well as continuous blood oxygen, CO2, and heart monitoring. Pre-operative blood testing is done in-house prior to surgery in order to provide the doctor with the most accurate and up-to-date information about the pet's health status and ultimately to minimize surgical risk. Patients receive attentive post-operative nursing care by our trained veterinary technicians to ensure each pet wakes safely and comfortably. The pet is then moved to the glass enclosed ICU ward where they are constantly visible to doctors and technicians but able to rest and recuperate in a quiet environment. We use several types of medications, administered pre and post-surgically, to control each pet’s pain. Surgical incisions are treated with a Therapeutic Laser post-operatively to speed up the healing process.
