  • Less bleeding

  • Faster recovery

  • Less scarring

  • Lower risk of infection

Safety Protocols We Take to Protect Your Pet

Throughout every procedure, our goal is to minimize the risks and give your pet the very best chance at a speedy and complete recovery. We take precautions before, during, and after the procedure to ensure your pet’s safety from start to finish. Our safety protocols include:

  • Performing a pre-anesthetic exam and blood work to check that your pet is healthy enough for surgery
  • Supplying fluids throughout the procedure through an IV catheter that help to hydrate your pet and stabilize their blood pressure
  • Monitoring their vitals with advanced equipment
  • Providing effective pain medication to reduce discomfort and stress

Post-Surgery Care Instructions

After your pet’s procedure, we’ll talk to you about detailed at-home care instructions as well as follow-up care. We’ll be in touch with your primary vet for your pet’s ongoing treatment. Our goal is to ensure every pet has the best chance for a full recovery and a fulfilling and healthy life.
