Surgery with Anesthesia
When a pet must endure general anesthesia, we understand and appreciate the concerns of its owners. As a result, we evaluate heart rate, blood pressure, EKG, blood-oxygen saturation, breathing rate, and carbon dioxide levels in sedated patients as part of our complete patient monitoring. The pressure of the inflatable cuff on the endotracheal tube (breathing tube) that comes with every sedated patient is also measured. We have the experience, knowledge, and equipment needed to provide our sedated patients with the safest environment possible. Fluids are administered to all patients in order to maintain proper organ function and blood pressure. Patients are given a laser therapy treatment after surgery if it is necessary to enhance healing, relieve discomfort, and reduce inflammation.
Following surgery, we focus on post-operative monitoring and pain treatment. Our veterinarians will give you detailed instructions for at-home care.
