Wooded Acres Animal Hospital: Pet Surgery
If you have to take your pet in for surgery, it can be a scary proposition. You love your pet as if they're a child, and you don't want to see them get hurt.
Still, there are times when surgery is necessary to help your pet survive or avoid further complications. Surgery can give some pets a better quality of life. At Wooded Acres Animal Hospital, we know that your pet is important to you, and we do all we can to make them comfortable as they go through and recover from surgery.
How Does Wooded Acres Animal Hospital Handle Hospitalizations and Surgeries?
We focus on making sure your pet gets the best care possible. From the moment they come in, they go through a physical exam and receive the tests they need to identify any health issues. We identify medical concerns using:
- Oral exams
- Physical exams
- Blood work
We have an in-house laboratory that handles blood work, so we can quickly find out if an ailment is affecting your pet. We also take blood work before surgery to make sure your pet is healthy enough to go through it, especially if the surgery is elective.
How Does Our Middle Island Veterinarian Keep My Pet Comfortable?
During surgeries, pets are anesthetized and sleep through the procedure. They are given pain medications if needed and will be drowsy when they wake up. We monitor their CO2 and oxygen levels as they recover so that we know if they need additional support.
If your pet is in pain or feeling unwell, we will make sure to use medications to control their symptoms until the cause can be identified. We want to help keep them comfortable at all times.
