Surgical procedures, whether routine or emergency, require great care before, during and after the operation. That's why our veterinarians and animal health technicians pay attention to every detail and take the necessary precautions to properly prepare your pet, keep them stable during surgery and minimize discomfort when they wake up.
What's in your operating rooms?
Our operating rooms have state-of-the-art equipment such as laser surgery devices, respiratory and cardiac monitors, electronic fluid pumps, heating mats, etc. Our recovery room is also equipped to keep our patients warm and prevent hypothermia.
What are the benefits of laser surgery?
Compared to scalpel surgery, laser surgery causes less bleeding and trauma. The inflammation that causes pain is also reduced, which speeds up healing. There’s also a very low risk of infection, due to the laser’s high temperature, which destroys the bacteria.
What's the difference between general and local anesthesia?
When a pet is under general anesthesia, they stay asleep throughout the surgical procedure. An animal health technician monitors the pet's body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen level. Sedatives and painkillers are administered to facilitate recovery when they wake up.
Local anesthesia usually lasts 4 to 6 hours. It's mostly used for minor surgeries, such as removing small masses. Pets must be calm, docile and able to remain almost motionless throughout the procedure.
