Surgery

Surgeries we perform include:
  • ACL (Cruciate) repair

  • Growth removals
  • Hernia repair
  • OFA certification

With the exception of emergencies, surgery is scheduled and performed by appointment. Our surgical suite is a single use, dedicated room where we perform aseptic surgical procedures. All the instrument packs are sterilized and aseptic procedures are strictly followed. Our patients are placed on water circulating heating pads and their respiration, heart rate, and blood oxygenation levels are continuously monitored during each procedure. We use a variety of injectable anesthetic and sedative agents, selected specifically for the patient and procedure to be performed. Isofluorane gas is our choice for general anesthesia because of its high safety record.

You are welcome to call for a progress report after 1:00 PM, and you will be given post-op instructions upon discharge of your pet. Most surgical patients go home the same afternoon as the surgery!
