Our entire medical staff understands that the decision to allow your dog or cat undergo surgery is never an easy one. That is why we are here to answer any questions you have regarding your pet’s surgery and to address your concerns so that you feel satisfied with your decision.
Anesthesia & Monitoring
To ensure your pet remains healthy and safe during surgery, our veterinary team utilizes an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the strictest protocols hence providing the highest-quality of care for your pet.
Prior to surgery we conduct a complete physical exam and appropriate blood testing on your pet. These test results, along with other factors such as your pet’s breed, age and preexisting conditions, are used to customize his/her anesthesia protocol.
During surgery, our team of highly qualified and experienced vets take care of your pet using a monitoring system; this system tracks heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate and body temperature.
Comprehensive Pain Management
As part of our commitment to keeping you and your pet comfortable, we practice the latest and most effective pain management methods. Through the use of local anesthetics, oral and injectable analgesics, and non-steroidal medications we ensure your pet heals quickly and with the least amount of discomfort as possible.
Our services do not end after your pet gets discharged from our animal hospital in Edmonton. Upon pick-up, we provide the pet owners with detailed information on how to care for their furry companions once they get home after surgery. Furthermore, if any concerns arise after your pet returns home, owners are more than welcome to give us a call.
We are happy to do everything we can to ensure full recovery of your pet.
