Making Surgery Safe and Comfortable
Winslow Animal Hospital uses the same state-of-the-art equipment found in many human hospitals. All surgery patients receive preanesthetic blood tests to check the health of organs, as well as an IV catheter and fluids for safety and hydration. Heated surgery tables, safe anesthetics and careful monitoring help ensure that your best friend is comfortable. During surgery, we monitor your pet’s heart rhythm and rate, level of oxygen in the blood, blood pressure and temperature to ensure anesthetic safety.
In addition to sophisticated monitoring equipment, a certified veterinary technician provides a watchful eye and caring touch while assisting the doctor. When patients recover from surgery, they’re never alone. A veterinary technician checks vital signs every few minutes and comforts pets with warming devices, blankets and hugs.
