Personalized Anesthesia

Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care. We utilize a state-of-the-art monitoring and anesthesia system to ensure your pet's safety during all surgeries.

With your consent, prior to surgery your pet is examined and a blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and your pet's past anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet. We will also administer injectable preoperative pain medicine after receiving your approval.

During surgery, your pet is cared for by a well-trained and experienced veterinary technician using our monitoring system, which tracks blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature and oxygen level.

Pet HealingComprehensive Pain Management

We all know pain hurts, but pain also has many other detrimental effects on your pet's body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity and causes behavioral changes such as aggression, anxiety and depression. Pain worsens diseases like arthritis and potentially some cancers. It also interferes with the bond between you and your pet.

As part of our commitment to keep your pet comfortable and protect the bond you share, we practice the most up-to-date and comprehensive pain management protocol. For surgeries as well as for acute and chronic conditions we use all our available and safe resources, including local anesthetics, NSAIDs (non-steroidal medications), fentanyl patches and oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet.

Healing Postoperative Care

Following surgery, your pet is closely monitored and cared for by our attentive medical staff for a safe recovery. As your pet is discharged from the hospital, you will be provided detailed information on how to administer any medication and properly care for your pet after surgery. We are also happy to answer any questions or concerns that arise after you and your pet return home.
