Our surgical experience ranges from routine spays and neuters to orthopedic procedures. Our more complicated surgeries include cruciate repairs, luxating patella repairs, fracture repairs, and exploratory surgeries. We work mainly with cats and dogs, but sometimes have a bunny to spay or neuter. Our surgical nurses are constantly monitoring your pets' vital signs and stay with your pet until it is fully awake. We have the newest monitoring equipment that monitors your pet's vital signs for oxygen levels, CO2 levels, heart rate, and blood pressure.

If you pet is scheduled for surgery they should be fasted from midnight on the night before the procedure, but your pet may have water. We require our patients to be at the hospital between 7:00 and 7:30 a.m. the day of the procedure. Give yourself approximately 20 minutes for a nurse to complete the check-in process. If you have someone else drop your pet off make sure they are knowledgeable of your pet's history & have authority to make choices regarding options available to you. We will also require a phone number(s) that we will be able to reach you at the day of the procedure in case of any emergencies or questions that may arise. If we cannot reach you, we will make a decision based on the patient's best interest.

We require that vaccines including, Distemper, Rabies, Bordetella, be up to date as well as a current fecal exam (within 1 year) when your pet stays at the hospital. It is helpful if you bring a fecal sample with you if your animal is due. You will need to provide proof of these services prior to or at check in. If your pet is due for vaccines please alert staff at the time the reservation is made. If your pet is positive for intestinal parasites, fleas, ticks, or ear mites it is our policy to treat while your pet is boarding to prevent spread throughout our facilities.
