Many pet owners are reluctant to have their pets undergo surgical procedures. Rest assured that your pet’s health is our utmost concern. Before any surgical procedure, they are given an extensive physical exam, necessary pre-anesthetic bloodwork, and if indicated, radiographs to fully evaluate any risk factors.
The safest anesthetic induction and maintenance procedures are tailored for your pet. While under anesthesia, they are monitored by a trained veterinary technician, along with extensive monitoring equipment covering blood pressure, EKG, respiration rate, and oxygen saturation.
Your companion’s temperature, heart and respiratory rate, and alertness are continually monitored during recovery until they are fully awake. For more information on surgical procedures for your pet, call Westside Pet Hospital at our Bend, Oregon veterinary office today!
