We understand that surgery is not an easy experience for you or for your pet. At Archvet Animal Hospital, we strive to ensure your pet's surgery is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. To that end, we also provide our clients with a clear understanding of why a particular
procedure is necessary, what the surgery entails, proper post-operative care,
and any other information you may need to feel comfortable that you are
making the right choice for your pet.
While all of our veterinarians are qualified to perform a wide range of pet
surgeries, Archvet Animal Hospital believes this is an area best served by a
specialist at times.
We also believe that identifying and relieving pain is important to the recovery
of your pet. Therefore, pain management is an important aspect of our
intra- and post-surgical protocols. At discharge, we may also send additional
pain management medication home with you and your pet after providing a thorough explanation of its proper use and dosage.
Anesthesia & Monitoring
Anesthesia and cardiovascular monitoring are important, integral aspects of every surgery we perform. For this reason, your pet has access to the best and most advanced anesthetic administration and cardiovascular monitoring equipment and protocols that are available.
Anesthesia is individualized for your pet based on a number of factors, which includes the type of procedure, his or her preexisting conditions, blood test values, age, breed, and prior anesthetic experience.
During anesthesia and surgery, your pet is constantly monitored by a trained and licensed veterinary technician, using our advanced monitoring system. This system continuously monitors your pet's arterial oxygen level, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and core body temperature.
The result of all our efforts is the best and safest outcome for your pet. You can rest assured that we are able to provide the highest and most compassionate surgical care to our clients and their pets.
