We see dogs, cats and some pocket pets.Surgery:In addition to spays, neuters and declaws, we routinely perform injury repair, tumor removal, diagnostic (biopsy), gastrointestinal and urinary tract procedures.Anesthesia:As there are many modalities available, we choose an anesthesia protocol based on the procedure and the specific needs of the patient. We use current philosophies that include preemptive analgesia, multimodal drug combinations and local/regional analgesic blocks. Patients receive intravenous catheters and fluids appropriate for their needs. We use isoflurane inhalant anesthetic.
