We want you to be comfortable making the decision to move ahead and are always available to answer any questions you may have.
Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will complete a physical examination of your pet and ensure any blood tests have been completed prior to their procedure. Our veterinarian will review and determine an anesthetic protocol, and confirm the specifics of the procedure with you.
Dedicated surgical suite. All of our surgeries are performed in a dedicated surgical suite, which is kept completely sterile to prevent infection and cross-contamination.
Surgical attire. Anyone in the surgical suite wears disposable masks and caps at all times. Those involved in the procedure wear single-use gloves and sterile gowns.
Sterile packs and equipment. Before each surgery, our surgical instruments and equipment are carefully cleaned, sterilized and wrapped.
