Safe Anesthesia and Monitoring

For most surgical procedures, anesthesia is required. While under anesthesia, your pet is continuously monitored by both staff and specialized anesthesia monitoring technology, ensuring that your pet is comfortable and stable throughout the procedure. We closely monitor blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature and oxygen levels to make sure that surgery is as safe as possible.

Simply stated, we will leave nothing to chance and endeavor to ensure the equipment and protocols are the best available for protecting your pet's well-being during surgery.

Comprehensive Pain Management

We take pain management with your pet seriously. In fact, pain management is not just about compassionate care. We have found that a proper and balanced application of pain medications helps your pet heal faster.

To minimize your pet's discomfort, we typically use a combination of local anesthetics, NSAIDs and narcotic pain relievers. The exact protocol is tailored to each animal and depends on a number of factors that are determined by the pre-surgery exam and during the procedure.

Postoperative Care for Your Pet

The amount of time your pet will need to be monitored after surgery varies. In some cases, animals will need to be monitored overnight; in others, they can be sent home soon after complete recovery from anesthesia. When your pet is discharged, the doctors provide you with information on proper home care after surgery. Often, your pet will be prescribed medication. In this case, we will explain how and when to administer it. Contact us at (770) 594-2266 with any questions or concerns following surgery and we will be more than happy to help you.
