Surgery & Anesthesia

surgery-monitorHere at Companion Animal Clinic, we understand that your pets are special members of the family.  We know first-hand how scary it can be when you are faced with having your pet undergo anesthesia for a surgical procedure.

We take every precaution to ensure that our patients have a successful outcome. Prior to anesthesia, we perform comprehensive physical exams and recommend bloodwork to ensure that the organ systems are functioning well and that they are good surgical candidates.

Anesthetic protocols are tailored to each individual patient. During the procedure, intravenous fluids are used to support the cardiac system and our trained veterinary technicians monitor the patient closely with state-of-the-art machines that measure pulse ox, blood pressure, respiratory and heart rates, ECG, and body temperature.

Post-operatively, we use a combination pain control protocol to keep your pet safe, pain-free, warm and monitored during the recovery process.  We also give lots of kisses and snuggles!  It is our first priority to take care of the patient and to always keep you informed of their progress.  Discharges are done privately by appointment to go over written discharge instructions in person and to answer any questions or concerns you may have
