Decreasing Risks, Increasing Comfort

A safe surgical procedure protocol for your pet involves several steps:

  • Doing an exam and blood work to check their health and customize their anesthesia and pain control
  • Providing IV fluid therapy and monitoring all major vitals during your pet’s surgery to support organ function
  • Using warm circulating water blankets to maintain a healthy body temperature
  • Administering pain relief as needed during surgery
  • Performing post-operative laser therapy to decrease pain and swelling and increase healing
  • Providing clear and concise post-op instructions to help you care for your pet while they’re recovering at home
