Dutchtown Animal Hospital offers surgical services for emergency and routine soft tissue procedures using the most advanced anesthetic and pain control techniques and monitoring equipment. We take great care to assure our patients are receiving the safest, most comfortable surgical procedure possible.
All of our surgical patients recieve a comprehensive physical exam prior to surgery and we recommend a pre-anesthetic blood panel as a comprehensive"internal physical exam." The blood panel accesses liver function (ALT, ALKP), kidney function (BUN, CREA), screens for diabetes (GLUC) and anemia (PCV), and checks total blood protein levels. Throughout the procedure, surgical technicians monitor the patient's heart rate, respiration rate, pulse oximetry and EKG pattern and continue to monitor the patient until fully recovered.
