All Ovariohysterectomy (Spay) include:
Pre-anesthetic blood testing: Ensures your pet’s internal organs such as the kidneys and liver are functioning correctly.
Pre-operative pain medication: Pain medication given before a procedure is more effective in preventing pain.
Oral examination: Dental care is important to your pet’s overall health.
Anesthetic monitoring: The EKG, blood oxygen level and blood pressure are all important since they can point to early signs of anesthetic problems.
Dedicated nurse monitoring: For your pet’s safety there will be someone present during the procedure whose only task is to monitor your pet.
IV catheter & fluids: An IV catheter allows instant access incase any emergency drugs need to be given. IV fluids keep blood pressure in a safe range and help preserve kidney function during anesthesia.
Post-surgical pain medication: Patients will also have pain medications offered after surgery.
Detailed written aftercare instructions: We will send home written instructions after your pet’s procedure.
Calling to check on our patient: Our doctors like to know how your pet is recovering.
