Pre-Surgical Evaluation and Preparation

Before any surgical procedure, we conduct a thorough pre-surgical evaluation to assess your pet’s overall health and identify any potential risks. This may include blood tests, imaging studies, and other diagnostic tests to ensure your pet is a good candidate for surgery.


Advanced Anesthesia and Monitoring

During any surgery, your pet’s safety is our top priority. We utilize advanced anesthesia protocols tailored to your pet’s individual needs, along with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment to closely monitor their vital signs throughout the procedure.

Just as in human anesthesia we ensure safe IV access prior to anesthesia and monitor pulse oximetry, blood pressure, ECG, temperature, and end-tidal CO2 throughout every surgical procedure.

A technician dedicated is to monitoring anesthesia throughout your pet’s surgery and recovery, and our team is trained to recognize and respond to any changes in your pet’s condition promptly, ensuring a safe procedure.


Post-Surgical Care and Recovery

After orthopedic surgery, we provide comprehensive post-surgical care to ensure your pet’s comfort and aid in their recovery. This may include pain management medications, physical therapy exercises, and follow-up appointments to monitor your pet’s progress.

Our compassionate staff is here to support you and your pet every step of the way, from the initial consultation through the recovery process.
