Monitoring and Anesthesia Safety
Your pet's safety is our priority at all times. Along with our skilled doctors, we also have experienced technicians and anesthetists working together to make sure that every surgery goes smoothly.
Before every surgery, we perform a complete physical exam and blood work to ensure that our patients are healthy and ready for their procedure. Next, we take several important steps to prepare our patients and keep them comfortable during and after their surgery:
- IV catheterization for giving fluids and medications
- Appropriate pain management, including nerve blocks and non-steroidals
- Monitoring of EKG, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, temperature and respiratory rate
- Post-op laser therapy following more invasive/exploratory surgeries
- Close observation after surgery to make sure patient awakens safely

Veterinary medicine has its roots in ancient Egypt, where humans and animals alike benefited from medicinal herbs. In 1762, Claude Bourgelat founded the first veterinary college in Lyon, France. In 1844, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons was established. In the US, the first veterinary schools opened in the early 19th century.
