Expert surgical care and advanced anesthetic and monitoring protocols are available to your pet at Greenview Veterinary Hospital. Your pet’s safety and comfort are our highest priority and it is the goal of our experienced staff to make your pet’s surgery as safe and stress-free as possible.
We want your pet to be as safe and comfortable as possible during his or her surgical procedure. A designated surgical technician is on hand to monitor your pet before, during and after his or her surgery.
Prior to every procedure, we conduct a thorough physical examination in order to detect any potential problems that may cause complications from the use of anesthesia. We use this information to develop an anesthetic protocol that is specific to your pet. Greenview Veterinary Hospital uses Isoflurane anesthesia.
During surgery, your pet’s vital signs, including heart rate, respiratory rate and pulse are monitored using a pulse oximeter and additional sophisticated monitoring devices. Your pet is kept warm using blankets and a heating pad both during and after surgery.
Pain management is an important part of our intra- and post-operative protocols. Your pet receives pain medication prior to his or her surgery and depending on the procedure, you may be given pain medication to take home for your pet. Less pain results in a faster recovery time for your pet.
If you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s surgery, please ask us! We are happy to answer any questions you may have in order to make you and your pet as comfortable as possible.
