We also offer orthopedic surgeries at our facility, thanks to our partnerships with traveling orthopedic surgeons. Ophthalmic surgeries are referred out to trusted specialists.
Preparing for the Procedure
We treat our patients like family while they are in our care. We do just one surgery at a time and avoid scheduling any other appointments during your pet’s procedure. All of our attention and focus will be on your cherished family member alone.
The day before your pet’s appointment, we’ll confirm the best time for us to come and pick up your dog or cat. We’ll also go over estimates and any other details we need to wrap up before surgery.
On the day of the surgery, we will pick your pet up in our van. Our veterinary team will shower your dog or cat with affection and treats to help her feel relaxed. She’ll spend minimal time in one of our clean, comfortable kennels before and after the procedure.
We’ll also perform pre-surgical bloodwork with our in-house laboratory equipment. This helps us check for conditions that might require a specialized anesthetic plan. It also establishes baseline results that we can refer to during and after the procedure.
During the Surgery
We monitor your pet’s blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, ECG readings, fluid rates, and oxygen and CO2 levels throughout a surgery or dental cleaning.
For certain types of surgery, especially mass removals, we use a surgical laser instead of a traditional scalpel. This special tool cauterizes surgical incisions, lowers the risk of infection, promotes faster healing time, and causes your pet less pain during recovery.
After surgery, we’ll make sure your pet feels comfortable and continue to monitor their vitals. We offer cold laser therapy as part of a comprehensive pain management plan. Your pet will get to wear one of our new surgical body suits to restrict chewing. This means no annoying cones!
As soon as Dr. Ashley or our veterinary team is comfortable with your cat or dog’s vitals and is certain the patient is ready to return home, we’ll drive her back to you. She’ll arrive with post-op pain medications and any other medications needed to aid in surgical recovery.
