Our hospital has a fully equipped operating room with state of the art anesthesia. We provide routine surgical procedures including spays and neuters but can also perform more complex surgeries formerly only available at large referral facilities by our residency trained veterinary surgeon Dr. Lori Gordon. This can allow us to extend significant savings on some of the major surgeries that sometime sadly force owners to have to consider quantity over quality of life for their beloved pets.

We always tailor our protocols to address any existing conditions that might influence anesthesia and recovery. Everyone wants the best outcome after a procedure since not all problems can be detected from an exam so we highly recommend pre-operative blood work, and sometimes other screening tests especially for the older animals, to give us a more complete picture of internal health and allow us to adjust the event to specifically meet your pet’s needs. There is a veterinary technician at the side of each animal during their surgical procedure. Each animal’s vitals are closely monitored – which include ECG, blood pressure, blood oxygen and breathing rate. In addition to safety, pain management during and after surgery is crucial part of our planning.

All surgical patients receive the best combination of management suited to the procedure to ensure that every animal is as comfortable as possible. For elective dental, spay and neuters this may include local nerve blocks, spinal infusions and peripheral numbing to minimize potential for side effects. Our staff takes pain management and surgery seriously and so should you, we will discuss any questions fully prior to your appointment to put you at ease with all procedures.
