Surgical Suite

We are equipped to perform many different surgical procedures from the routine ovariohysterectomies (spays) and neuters, to abdominal exploratories, bowel resections, thoracic surgery and orthopedic surgeries such as cruciate and fracture repairs.

Anesthesia: We focus on progressive anesthesia allowing the patients to experience safe and pleasant anesthesia with minimal side effects. Prior to surgery, the animal is given appropriate pain medication and sedation allowing induction of anesthesia and wakeup to be quiet and pain free. We are the only hospital in the area to offer Sevoflurane a gas anesthetic that is mainly excreted by exhalation, maintaining low solubility in the bloodstream. This is often an excellent anesthetic to use on geriatric patients, patients with heart conditions, and patients with liver failure when a rapid wake up from anesthesia is important.

Monitoring during anesthesia is a critical component to a safe procedure and includes the utilization of an EKG, respiratory monitor and pulse oximeter to measure the patient’s oxygenation during surgery. A carefully trained veterinary technician (nurse anesthetist) continuously monitors these and additional vitals functions working hand in hand with the surgeon performing the procedure.
