Standard of Care

APPOINTMENT

Patient Comfort

  • Our goal is to provide high quality complete veterinary care personalized to fit the needs of your animal based on lifestyle and risk factors.
  • Patients in the hospital will have blankets, towels and comfortable accommodations.
  • Surgical patients will recover in a quiet, clean, spacious cage for their protection.
  • A technician will be with every animal through anesthetic recovery and until awake; after care will be attentive and timely.

Surgery

  • Only a qualified, licensed Doctor of Veterinary Medicine will perform surgery.
  • Surgical instruments are never “shared” between patients. A fresh, sterilized pack of instruments is used for every patient.
  • Co2 Surgical Laser not only limits blood loss but helps start the healing process sooner.
  • Surgery takes place in a separate, enclosed, operating suite.
  • New sterile individual sutures are always used.
  • Surgeons and Technicians are dressed in appropriate surgical attire.

Anesthesia

  • Qualified, trained, veterinary technicians are present with all animals from the beginning until “wake-up” during surgical procedures.
  • Every patient will receive intravenous (IV) Fluids, an electrocardiogram (EKG), appropriate laboratory work and gas anesthesia based on the specific surgical need.
  • Every animal will be monitored during surgery for blood pressure, cardiac function (EKG), oxygen saturation, thermal regulation, fluid rate, anesthesia levels by a trained veterinary technician.

Analgesia

  • All animals in our care will get the best possible pain management which includes: pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative selections.
  • The choice of medication will be based on the procedures, duration, and the doctor’s recommendation. We use a combination of epidurals, local nerve blocks anesthetics, anti-inflammatory, and osteoarthritis prescriptions.

Certain procedures and treatments can be expensive. We understand our clients have different financial obligations and we will do everything we can to work within your budget while still providing the best care for your pet. But, remember, COST is not the only variable when considering surgery or care. The experience and expertise of qualified professionals, and the quality of care and service should be taken into consideration.

We treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
