Surgery

At PRAH our first priority with any surgical procedure is your pet’s safety.  Before undergoing any surgical procedure we recommend pre-surgical testing that includes, but is not limited to, blood work, electrocardiogram and a chest x-ray. Our surgical suite contains advanced monitoring equipment, including ECG (electrocardiogram),  Pulse Oximetry  (the percent of oxygen in the blood), and Capnography (carbon dioxide levels in the blood). In addition we use a special monitor called a doppler to listen carefully to your pets heartbeat.  We use the gas anesthetic, Sevoflourane, which is the number one choice in human hospitals.  Our heated surgical table helps maintain body temperature and your pets temperature is monitored throughout the surgical procedure.  Your pet will have an intravenous catheter and warmed intravenous fluids, much like when humans undergo surgery. Our experienced team of veterinarians are able to perform a wide range of surgical procedures from a routine spay and neuter to emergency surgery or soft tissue surgery such as removal of tumors.
