Protocols We Follow for Your Pet’s Safety

We take your companion’s safety very seriously, and abide by rigorous safety protocols to ensure your pet’s surgery goes smoothly.

Our team observes the following guidelines during every surgery we perform:

  • Running pre-anesthetic blood work to check for underlying illness and evaluate your pet’s liver and kidney function
  • Depending on your pet’s age and condition, we might perform a chest X-ray to assess their heart and lungs prior to surgery
  • Providing an IV catheter so our team can easily administer fluids and medications to your pet during surgery
  • Monitoring your pet’s vitals throughout the procedure with our state-of-the-art equipment
  • Offering post-surgical care and monitoring to ensure that your pet wakes up safely and comfortably

The Importance of Spay and Neuter Surgery for Dogs and Cats

We recommend spay and neuter surgeries for all pets, barring any serious risks. Having your dog or cat spayed or neutered can prevent a variety of health problems and negative behaviors, including but not limited to:

  • Ovarian and uterine cancers as well as pyometra in females
  • Prostate and testicular cancer in males
  • Roaming the streets to find a mate and ending up in harm’s way
  • Vocalizing loudly (barking, howling, caterwauling)
  • Urine spraying (typical of males)

In addition to improving your pet’s physical health, spaying and neutering can help reduce the stray animal population. This in turn helps to relieve the pressure on local animal shelters and rescues, and prevents more healthy animals from being euthanized.
