Our hospital offers comprehensive animal anesthesia monitoring. Prior to anesthesia, your veterinarian will perform a thorough physical examination of your pet and may require them to have bloodwork in order to evaluate general organ health and suitability of anesthetic medications. While your pet is under anesthesia, he or she will be monitored in much the same way as a person undergoing anesthesia would be. This monitoring includes listening to your pet's heart and lungs, visually assessing your pet's reflexes, and using equipment to monitor your pet's blood pressure, level of blood oxygen, heart rate, heart rhythm, and temperature. After the procedure is completed, your pet will continue to have vital parameters monitored until he or she is fully recovered. Trained technicians act alongside veterinarians to ensure that your pet's procedure goes smoothly.

Surgery

A board-certified veterinary surgeon is a veterinarian who completed an internship and residency (an additional 3-5 years of training after graduation from veterinary school) and passed a rigorous examination to achieve board certification in the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS). These doctors provide specialized assistance in a variety of scenarios, including:

  • Traumatic injury & emergencies (i.e.: fractures, skin wounds & lacerations, gastric dilatation-volvulus/”bloat”)
  • Orthopedic disorders (i.e.: cranial cruciate ligament injuries, luxating patellas, angular limb deformities)
  • Soft tissue injuries (i.e.: tumor removal, liver biopsies & shunt correction, lung biopsies)
  • Neurological ailments (i.e.: herniated discs, spinal cord injuries)

All veterinarians may perform surgery. However, challenging surgical conditions benefit from the expertise of a board-certified veterinary surgeon to help maximize the likelihood of a positive outcome. Remember primary care veterinarians focus on the day-to-day needs of your pet, and board-certified veterinary surgeons spend years training specifically for surgical procedures. Our surgical team partners with pet parents and family veterinarians before and after surgery to help determine the best treatment and ensure continuity of care, respectively.

Our surgical team, including a highly experienced team of licensed veterinary technicians (LVTs), operates in a state-of-the-art facility fit for humans. They use innovative equipment generally not available to family veterinarians. When hospitalization is needed, both veterinarians and LVTs monitor patients around-the-clock so you don’t have to worry about your fur baby being left alone and unattended overnight. Other board-certified veterinary specialists, including experts in internal medicine, critical care, and cardiology, are readily available for consultation should the need arise.
