Keeping Your Pet Safe During Surgery
We understand that hearing your pet needs surgery can be worrisome for a pet owner. South County Animal Hospital abides by strict safety guidelines as part of our commitment to help ensure your pet has a safe and successful procedure:
- We will perform a physical examination and pre-anesthetic blood screening to check for any health issues that may interfere with your pet’s safety while under anesthesia.
- On the day of your pet’s surgery, we will place an IV catheter to administer fluids to preserve their hydration and blood pressure throughout the procedure.
- Our computerized anesthetic machines enable our team to have precise control over how much anesthesia your pet receives during surgery.
- A licensed veterinary technician with anesthesia expertise will monitor your pet’s vitals including blood pressure and oxygen saturation.
