Pet Surgery in Highlands Ranch, CO

We offer both conventional surgery for soft tissue and spay/neuter.

Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is of the utmost importance and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of veterinary medicine. All pets undergoing surgery receive State-of-the-Art anesthetic administration and cardiovascular monitoring.

Prior to surgery, your pet will be examined and a presurgical blood screen will be performed. The results of these tests and your pet’s past anesthetic history, breed, pre-existing conditions, and age will be used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet. Intravenous catheters are placed in your pet’s arm or leg for longer surgical procedures and for all high-risk and older patients. Catheters allow for intravenous fluids and administration of medication during your pet’s surgery and recovery.

During your pet’s surgical procedure, he/she will be monitored using a pulse oximeter, heart monitor, blood pressure monitor, and ECG. This allows us to maintain the highest level of safety for your pet before, during, and after their procedure. Warm water circulation pads are used to keep your pet warm during surgery and recovery.

Blankets and pads are given to all patients to make their recovery more comfortable and to keep them warm.
