Protocols to Increase Your Pet’s Safety
Your pet’s safety is paramount. Our team adheres firmly to strict guidelines to ensure a safe, smooth, and successful surgical procedure.
The guidelines we follow include:
- Doing pre-anesthetic blood work to screen for illness and assess your pet’s organ health
- Using an IV catheter to efficiently administer fluids and medications during surgery
- Keeping your pet warm and comfortable to maintain a healthy body temperature
- Monitoring vitals with advanced equipment throughout the procedure
- Offering post-surgical care and monitoring to ensure your pet wakes up safely and comfortably
Why Should You Get Your Pet Spayed or Neutered?
We recommend spay and neuter surgeries for most of our patients. These routine procedures can prevent a variety of health problems and disruptive behaviors, including:
- Ovarian and uterine cancers as well as pyometra (in females)
- Prostate and testicular cancer (in males)
- Urine spraying (in males)
Additionally, spaying and neutering helps to reduce the stray animal population, and relieve the pressure on local animal shelters and rescues.
Other Surgeries We Perform
Our doctors can perform a variety of soft-tissue surgeries in addition to spays and neuters, including:
- Tumor/mass removal
- Foreign body removal
- Surgical biopsy
