Our Small Animal Hospital is well-equipped to perform most minor and major surgical procedures, from spays and castrations to more complicated emergency and soft-tissue surgeries. Prior to surgery, your pet receives a thorough physical examination to assess their current health status. Because not all problems can be detected on examination, we recommend pre-anesthetic blood testing. These tests not only give us a more complete picture of your pet's health, but also allow us to tailor an anesthetic regimen that is specifically designed for your pet.
We offer a wide variety of anesthetic protocols tailored to your pet's individual needs. We use up to date anesthesia and utilise a variety of anesthetic monitoring devices. An intravenous (IV) catheter placed in your pet's leg allows quick access to your pet's circulatory system if an emergency arises and necesitates immediate delivery of emergency drugs. All anaesthetised patients are closely monitored by our nursing team before, during and after the procedure.
Pain management is an important part of our peri-operative anesthetic and medical protocol. All surgical patients, including those undergoing routine procedures such as ovariohysterectomy or castrations, receive pain control medication.
