Our Pet Surgery Safety Protocols for Lowering Risk
A surgery might be highly invasive and involved or minimally invasive, but each one is approached with great care and concern for the patient’s safety.
Our general guidelines for increasing safety during every pet surgery include:
- Performing pre-anesthetic blood work to screen for illness and evaluate your pet’s internal organs and ability to safely metabolize anesthesia
- Placing an IV catheter so our team can oversee the administration of fluids and medications to your pet during surgery
- Monitoring your pet’s vitals with the aid of our skilled team and advanced surgical equipment
Offering Additional Pain Management with Laser Therapy
Recovering from any kind of surgery can be difficult for your pet. We are proud to offer laser therapy as a non-invasive, painless, and medication-free treatment to help manage pain during post-op recovery. Laser therapy for dogs and cats is safe and proven to help relieve pain and stimulate healing from the inside out. When used during recovery, laser therapy can help heal surgical incisions faster and relieve any associated swelling and discomfort.
