OUR SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Here’s a summary of the list of the safety precautions and services we perform on your pet. Before you get your pet spayed or neutered, make sure the facility you use performs all these safety services. Many facilities do not, to save time and money. Why place your pet at increased risk for infection, complication and death?
- Complete pre-surgical examination by a veterinarian – documented in the medical record.
- Modern multi-modal anesthetic protocols – reduces organ damage risk, faster recovery, reduced pain and decreased risk of complication and death.
- Intravenous (IV) catheter – life-saving vascular access in an emergency.
- Intravenous (IV) fluids – hydration and blood pressure support to reduce organ damage, complication and death.
- Dopamine/Ephedrine Intravenous (IV) infusion – blood pressure support to reduce organ damage, complication and death.
- Intubation and regulated gas anesthesia – essential for maintaining an open airway for respiration and oxygenation of the brain and vital organs. All patients under general anesthesia are placed on a ventilator for proper respiration at no additional charge. This is the gold standard in anesthesia but is not practiced at most veterinary hospitals.
- Sterile materials and surgery pack – essential to minimize infection.
- Advanced monitoring equipment – oxygenation, CO2, temperature, ECG, blood pressure, respiration and heart rate are all recorded.
- Temperature support – heating equipment and IV fluid warmers to prevent organ damage.
- Active Recovery – monitoring during recovery until your pet is awake.
