Spay and Neuter equals a higher standard of care

Presurgical Blood Screen:

We highly recommend this blood test prior to the administration of anesthesia. This detects any organ dysfunction that could affect the type and amount of anesthesia used.

Catheritization / Fluid Support:

Most patients receive an IV catheter and fluids are administered through the IV during the procedure and throughout recovery. This helps maintain hydration and normal blood pressure to the patient.

Intubation / Inhalant Anesthesia:

The patient’s airway is protected throughout the procedure and helps maintains proper pulmonary ventilation.

Monitoring:

All patients receiving anethesia are placed on our Cardell Monitor. This unit measures heart rate, blood pressure, SPO2, and an EKG can also be evaluated while the patient is asleep.

Pain Control:

Pain medication is required for most procedures. Maintaining a pain-free procedure ensures that the patient will awaken quietly and continue to rest comfortably. Healing time is reduced when pain management is implemented. Staff is trained to recognize signs of pain and begin treatment if appropriate.
