Veterinary Surgery: High Standards in Pet Surgical Care
Park Grove Pet Hospital is a full-service hospital offering a variety of routine soft tissue and orthopedic procedures.
Some of the surgical procedures we perform regularly include spay, neuter, abdominal surgery, tumor removal, and minor fracture fixation. These surgeries are performed on-site in our dedicated surgical suite. We meet the highest standards in surgical care, with a focus on the unique needs of your pet.
Preoperative Care: A doctor examines your pet and determines what anesthetic and surgical plan is appropriate. Preoperative sedation and pain relief are given to help relax your pet and smooth the transition to general anesthesia. An intravenous catheter is placed to provide access to a vein for administering medications and fluids during the anesthetic procedure. The IV catheter also allows immediate access in the rare case of urgent or emergency situations under anesthesia.
During Surgery: Our Certified Veterinary Technicians (CVT) and Veterinarians are with your pet at all times during a surgical procedure. The surgery site is clipped and aseptically prepped by our CVTs and the doctor performs the procedure with sterile technique. A dedicated CVT is with your pet monitoring anesthesia and your pet’s response. Heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure, body temperature, breathing rate, and oxygen level are all closely monitored and changes are made to the anesthetic protocol when necessary.
Postoperative Care: Every pet wakes from anesthesia differently. Our job is to keep recovery as smooth and uneventful as possible. One of our CVTs will be with your pet from the moment surgery is completed until he or she is fully awake from the anesthesia. Body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and breathing rate are monitored until the patient is stable enough to return to the recovery kennel.
