Surgery is often necessary in our pets for a variety of reasons. While under my care, your pet will be placed on warm blankets for the surgical procedure. Additionally, the patient will be closely monitored throughout the surgical procedure using an EKG, heart rate and respiratory monitors, temperature monitor, oxygen saturation and blood pressure monitoring. Further, patients will receive preoperative, intra-operative and post-operative pain management as deemed necessary to assure adequate pain management. Upon completion of the procedure, you will be called so as to ease your mind. The patient will then remain under my supervision until it is released to its owner.
