We have a well equipped surgical suite. We offer routine soft tissue surgeries (such as spay, neuter, declaw for cats, tumor removal, and umbilical hernia repair), as well as more complex surgical procedures.
A pre-surgical exam and pre-anesthetic blood tests allow us to ensure your pet is an acceptable candidate for anesthesia. While most surgery is uneventful, emergencies sometimes occur. During surgery, your pet is monitored by both the technician and the veterinarian. Detecting problems early helps us to intervene and correct them. A state-of-the-art monitor allows us to track your pet’s heart rate, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, temperature, and more. In addition, we maintain an intravenous catheter and administer fluids during anesthesia and surgery. Fluids help keep blood pressure stable and aid the kidneys in processing anesthetic agents.
In order to protect your pets, as well as those belonging to other people, we require verifiable or written proof that your pet is up to date on the following vaccinations:
Dogs: DHLPP, Rabies
Cats: FVRCP, Rabies
When dropping your pet off for surgery you will be asked to sign a consent form giving us permission to put your pet under anesthesia. This form will also further explain your surgical options. If you have questions about these options, our reception staff will assist you. For your convenience, you can download the Surgery Consent Form and bring it to us when you bring your pet for surgery.
