Our commitment to patient safety

Your pet’s safety is always our number one priority. Although anesthetic complications are rare, we take every precaution to ensure your pet’s surgical experience is smooth, pain-free, and safe. Some of our safety features include:

Pre-anesthetic lab work

Preparatory tests inform the veterinarian about your pet’s organ function and whether they are healthy enough for anesthesia.

Individualized anesthetic protocol

Based on your pet’s health status, breed, and age, our veterinarian carefully selects the safest anesthetic medications and protocols to create a balanced anesthesia.

Continuous monitoring

Electronic monitoring equipment and a dedicated veterinary technician track and record your pet’s vital signs, including oxygenation, heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, heart rhythm, and temperature, and alert the surgeon to any change.

State-of-the-art surgical suite

Our dedicated surgery room, equipment, and instruments ensure the highest sterility level.

Heat support

Anesthesia causes hypothermia, which can slow recovery, so we use warm water circulating mats and warm air blankets to preserve your pet’s body heat.- we also have fancy heated surgery tables.

Pain management

We use a multimodal analgesia plan to ensure your pet remains pain-free.
Supervised recovery — Your pet is closely monitored to ensure they stay warm and comfortable until they are fully awake.

Post-operative care for pets

We know that caring for a post-surgical pet at home can feel intimidating and overwhelming. We will walk you through each step, so you and your pet have a stress-free recovery.

After your pet is fully recovered from anesthesia, we’ll contact you to schedule or confirm their discharge appointment. At that time, one of our surgical team members will walk you through your pet’s at-home care instructions, explain any medications, schedule any follow-up appointments, and answer your questions.
