The treatment area can be a very busy hub in the hospital during the day. This is where we perform dental cleanings, laceration repairs, blood sample collection and many other procedures.
We perform routine spays and neuters as well as a variety of other sterile surgical procedures in this area. Your pet's anesthesia will be monitored by a trained technician, and specialized monitoring equipment is also utilized to keep a close eye on their anesthetic depth. All surgical patients have an IV catheter placed and receive IV fluids and other medications as needed to ensure their safety and comfort during and after anesthesia. Because core body temperature can drop during anesthesia, their temperature is monitored continuously and patients are actively warmed using a warm water circulating heating pad, warm towels, and warmed IV fluids.
We utilize a digital radiology (x-ray) system. X-rays can be taken, processed digitally, and shown to pet owners on computer monitors in the exam rooms. X-rays can also be emailed to specialists for further interpretation and/or care.
