How We Ensure a Safe Surgery for Your Pet

Safety is always our highest priority for your pet. As with human surgery, pet surgery has its risks, which is why we take the following steps to minimize risk as much as possible:

  • We perform pre-surgical blood work and an exam to make sure your pet is healthy before going under anesthesia
  • Your pet is connected to an IV catheter so we can provide them with the necessary fluids and any additional medications they need during their surgery
  • We use warming devices to maintain a safe body temperature for your pet
  • We have high-end equipment to monitor your pet’s vital signs, along with our certified nurse and assistant who will be by your pet’s side during the entire procedure
  • After surgery, we continue to monitor your pet and keep them warm so they can awaken safely from the anesthesia
  • Before your pet returns home, we’ll make sure they can eat, drink, and eliminate normally

Why is It Important to Spay and Neuter?

Most dogs and cats should be spayed and neutered at a certain time in their life to minimize their risk for reproductive diseases, and to prevent unwanted litters. Conditions that can be prevented or reduced with spay and neuter surgeries include:

  • Ovarian and uterine cancers as well as pyometra in females
  • Prostate and testicular cancer in males
  • Roaming
  • Vocalizing
  • Urine spraying
