Higher Standards

Your pet may require surgery for various reasons. We take necessary precautions to minimize risks during surgery and anesthesia. These include appropriate testing prior to any procedure and intra-operative patient monitoring, by continuous EKG, pulse oximetry and direct observation by trained technicians. Pre-surgical blood tests are required and will increase the chance of detecting a hidden problem that could be life threatening. We encourage the use of intravenous (IV) fluids for all patients. IV fluids support blood pressure and kidney function during surgery. The catheter also allows immediate access for drug administration if an emergency were to occur.

Elective procedures such as spays, neuters and mass removals are commonly performed on many of our patients. Other elective surgeries including canine vasectomy and dewclaw removal are available.
