Expert Care and Monitoring

Prior to surgery, your pet will undergo a comprehensive physical examination to assess their health status. Pre-anesthetic bloodwork is also conducted to identify any underlying health issues that may affect anesthesia. During surgery, we utilize advanced monitoring equipment to track vital signs such as pulse oximetry, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, EKG, and body temperature. Our veterinarians prioritize pain management to ensure your pet’s comfort and promote optimal healing and recovery.

Post-Surgical Care

After surgery, we provide detailed home care instructions to help facilitate your pet’s recovery. Our trained staff members will review these instructions with you and answer any questions you may have. It’s essential to monitor your pet’s incision for swelling and redness, closely observe their appetite, administer medications as directed, maintain bandages if applicable, and schedule follow-up appointments as recommended. We encourage you to contact us with any concerns about your pet’s recovery, and our veterinarians will provide ongoing support and guidance.
