Our Surgical Protocol to Ensure Safety

Your pet’s safety is, above all, our highest priority. To reduce anesthesia risks as much as possible, we take the following precautions:

  • Pre-op blood work (as needed) to evaluate the health of your pet/large animal and determine whether anesthesia will pose too high of a risk
  • Sterile surgical preparation/techniques
  • Heart rate and respiratory rate monitoring throughout the procedure
  • Intubation with isoflurane (anesthesia) maintenance
  • The administration of IV fluids if needed
  • Supervised recovery to ensure that the patient wakes up safely from the anesthesia
