Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital’s surgical team is capable of providing an extensive number of safe surgical procedures for your dog or cat in our state-of-the-art surgical suite.
We perform most types of general, orthopedic and oral surgery, including:
Prior to surgery, all patients are carefully screened through an exam and pre-surgical blood work, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. We recommend pre-surgical blood work so we can evaluate your pet’s kidney, liver and heart function prior to undergoing anesthesia.
We provide the same level of patient monitoring that you would receive if you were having surgery. We monitor all of your pet’s vital signs with state of the art equipment as well as manual techniques. Pets are monitored during surgery using pulse oximetry, respiratory monitoring, EKG, and temperature monitoring.
At Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital, we believe in maximizing the comfort of your pet before, during and after your pet’s procedure. We use a multi-modal approach to pain management, meaning we layer small amounts of different drugs to minimize any pain that your pet might feel during or after the procedure. Because we administer lower doses of each individual drug, your pet will experience fewer adverse side effects, more complete pain relief and faster post-operative recovery.
Please call us if you have any questions regarding the surgical procedures we perform or if you have any questions about our surgical protocols.
