Increasing Your Pet’s Safety During Surgery
Keeping your pet safe involves several important steps before, during, and after their procedure.
- First, we need to examine your pet and do bloodwork to assess organ function. This helps us know if your pet has an underlying illness or is healthy and ready for surgery. We also use our findings to determine proper anesthesia and monitoring protocols.
- For optimal pain control, we premedicate our patients with the appropriate medication. We also place an IV catheter for fluid support and other medications that may need to be given during the surgery.
- A trained technician assists the veterinarian during surgery to monitor your pet’s vitals and keep them stable throughout.
- Following the surgery, your pet is kept in a dedicated recovery area to awaken from anesthesia. They are closely monitored during this time to make sure they awaken safely.
Helping your pet recover at home is also important to us. Before you take your pet home with you, we will provide clear, printed instructions for you to follow. If your pet has any problems during their recovery at home, don’t hesitate to call us or bring them in for a checkup. Keeping your pet healthy and pain-free is always our main concern.
