Surgery can make every pet owner nervous. Although you can never eliminate risk, you can bring it to a minimum. Whether it’s for a routine spay or neuter, a dental cleaning, or orthopedic surgery, every animal undergoing surgery at The Animal Hospital receives a pre-surgical exam and blood work. This ensures they are healthy enough to undergo surgery and allows us to individualize their anesthesia and pain management plan. We use gas anesthesia and have state-of-the-art monitoring equipment for every animal, and all animals receive pain medications before and after surgery.
