Surgery

We offer many surgery options for your pets.

All surgery patients receive pre-anesthetic blood work which is performed before anesthesia. This allows us to make sure there are no underlying conditions that would change or prevent us from doing anesthesia.

In addition to pre-anesthetic blood work, we use low-risk anesthesia and monitor your pet’s vital signs electronically and manually while he or she is under anesthesia.

Dogs must be current on Rabies, Distemper-Parvo, Leptospirosis, Bordetella, and be internal & external parasite free. Cats must be current on Rabies and FVRCP (Feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia) and be internal & external parasite free. We should also know the cat’s FIV & feline leukemia status at the time of surgery. The FIV/FeLV test and vaccines can be done the same day as surgery if necessary.
