Dog and Cat Surgery in Greenville Gives Pets a Higher Quality of Life
Dog and cat surgery comes in many forms. It can be preventive, such as a spay or neuter, or it can be corrective, such as a mass removal or dental extraction. All of these surgeries set pets up for healthier lives by preventing serious conditions or correcting those present. Yet, no matter what procedure your pet comes in for, they are always treated with the highest level of care. Greenville Animal Hospital performs many dog and cat surgeries each week.
Safety at Every Stage of Dog or Cat Surgery
Your pet’s safety is your priority, and it’s ours, too. We treat them as you would—with gentle handling, words of encouragement, and all the safety measures to ensure their well-being. We take several steps to promote safety and comfort throughout your dog or cat's surgery including:
- Pre-anesthetic blood work and an exam. This step takes into account your pet’s whole health before surgery. Blood work allows us to detect underlying conditions that could make anesthesia dangerous for them.
- IV fluids. Using an IV catheter, we provide your pet with fluids throughout the procedure to keep them hydrated and stabilize their blood pressure.
- Complete monitoring. Our monitoring equipment reads all your pet’s vitals and tells if there are any changes. We watch their EKG (heart rhythm), heart rate, blood pressure, respiration rate, blood-oxygen levels, body temperature, and more.
- A dedicated LVT. A licensed veterinary technician monitors your pet at all times in addition to our monitoring equipment.
