Safety and good results are important for all surgeries. Anesthesia is undertaken with the utmost care using state of the art equipment and medications. Pre-surgical bloodwork and IV fluids are strongly recommended to maximize successful outcomes.

Monitoring of anesthetized patients includes EKG, blood oxygen saturation, and end tidal CO2 among others, to best insure a comfortable and safe procedure for the pet.

Only surgery within the abilities of our surgeons will be undertaken. Most orthopedics and specialty procedures will be sent to referral specialty practices in Chesapeake or to NC State University Veterinary Hospital.
