Caring for your pet like they’re our own and keeping them safe is always our highest priority, especially when it comes to pet surgery here in Locust Grove. Woodland Animal Hospital uses the best medical and monitoring equipment to make sure your pet is healthy, stable, and comfortable throughout their surgical procedure, and while they’re recovering. We are also committed to making sure you understand your pet’s procedure and have the information you need to provide the appropriate care at home to help them recuperate.
Your Pet is in Safe and Caring Hands
To ensure the highest level of safety for your pet during surgery, Woodland Animal Hospital employs the following protocols:
- Before your pet goes into surgery, we perform a pre-anesthetic exam and run bloodwork to evaluate organ function.
- Your pet will be connected to an intravenous catheter to receive fluids, so they can stay hydrated and maintain a healthy blood pressure throughout surgery.
- Our surgical table is heated during the procedure so your pet can maintain a safe body temperature.
Our surgical team uses ECG for monitoring heart activity, along with a blood pressure monitor, CO2, pulse oximeter, and other monitoring devices to ensure your pet is safe
