Surgical Procedures

 

At Companion Pet Clinic we understand that surgery can be an anxious and stressful time for both you and your pet. It is for this reason that we ensure your pet’s surgery is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. To that end, we provide our clients with a clear understanding of why a particular procedure is necessary, what the surgery entails and proper post-operative care.

Anesthesia is an integral part in surgery and is individualized based on certain factors like (cardiovascular, pulmonary, liver, and kidney health) and pre-existing disease. It is for this reason that pre-operative blood work, is strongly recommended in addition to an IV catheter and intra-operative fluids.

All patients are monitored with a system that evaluates the pet’s arterial oxygen level, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and core body temperature.
