Spay & Neuter
Our hospital is well-equipped to perform spay or neuter services. Prior to any surgery we require that each patient has been seen within the last 4 months so that we can do a physical examination. Because not all problems can be detected on examination, we also 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 regime that is best for your pet.
We provide patients with gas anesthesia. We also have equipment that allows us to monitor ECG, Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, Temperature, and Respiratory & Oxygen Level.
All surgical patients are intubated and maintained under general anesthesia with assistant can hear and see that the surgical patient is stable.
