Our Surgical Process
When you choose to work with us, we’ll help you undergo a smooth transition from diagnostics to surgery, and ultimately to the recovery process for your pet. Here is what you can expect when your pet visits our facility for surgery:
Phase #1: An IV is Inserted for Vital Fluids and pre-operative blood test is performed
In the morning, your pet is brought fasted into our facility and given an IV catheter, which will provide them with important fluids throughout their surgery. A pre-operative blood test is performed to ensure pets are healthy for anesthesia.
We utilize the most advanced fluid administration techniques to keep your pet comfortable during anesthesia by giving them just enough medication without causing any unwanted side effects or respiratory depression.
Phase #2: Monitoring Equipment is Then Utilized
Your pet is hooked up to a cardiac monitor and anesthetic machine before the surgery begins. The anesthesia equipment monitors your pet’s vital signs throughout their entire surgical stay, including:
This allows our staff to intervene in case something goes wrong during surgery and ensures we can respond immediately without delay so no harm comes to your pet while they are under general anesthetic or sedation for any type of pet surgery.
Phase #3: Surgery Preparation Begins
All surgical sites are prepared with the highest quality anti-septic solutions and proper aseptic technique is used to minimize post-operative infection.
Phase #4: Recovery Begins
After pet surgery, your pet will be closely monitored to ensure they are stable and recovering properly.
This includes checking their vital signs every 15 minutes for at least the first hour after pet surgery before it gradually decreases over time until they are ready to go back home with you.
