A surgical patient's is reviewed in the week or so prior t their surgery. Age and health are preliminary factor that help us to determine the bets surgical plan for the given patient. Blood work and CBC is done to show live and kidney function, electrolyte status, and whether a patient is struggling with an infection or anemia. If recent blood work is not on record, our team will recommend it. It is also recommended that IV catheter be placed for easy access to provide IV fluids or any medications if needed.
On the day of the surgery, the patient history, blood work results, client request and concerns, as well as specific about the procedure to be complete, a pre-anesthetic drug may be given. Anesthetized are monitored and care for continually by a technician who watches their respiratory and cardiac function, maintain their body temperature, and take note of concerns. Critical patients are monitored more extensively.
Antibiotics and pain medication are chosen and given according to each patient's history and need. Patients are monitored during recovery and their comfort is of great concern. After your pet awakes, you will be contacted and given details of the surgery ans recovery process.
