Pre- and Post-Surgical Care
For your pet’s safety, pre-anesthetic blood work is generally required to check their organ function and blood cell count. If they are 5 years of age or older or have an illness, pre-anesthetic testing is required. We want to make absolutely sure that your pet is as safe and healthy as possible before undergoing any surgical procedure. Our staff members will constantly monitor your pet’s heart rate, oxygen saturation, temperature, respiratory rate, and blood pressure to increase their safety and detect any issues early.
Once your pet is out of surgery, they are monitored during their recovery. Our staff members will stay in touch to keep you at ease and updated on your pet’s condition. Once they are able to stand and walk on their own, they can leave and continue their recuperation at home with you.
