Surgery & Endoscopy
At Animalia, we are equipped to perform a wide variety of surgical procedures to meet our patients’ needs. Whether it be a routine spay or neuter or a more advanced procedure, we are committed to the same high standard of care. Prior to any surgery or anesthetic procedure, we first collect and evaluate blood work, complete a thorough physical exam, and review all medical history, allowing us to design a tailored approach for your pet’s anesthesia.
During procedures, our patients are monitored by veterinary technicians who are trained to interpret and document vital signs such as heart rate and rhythm (EKG), respiratory rate and CO2 readings (capnography), body temperature, blood pressure, and blood oxygen saturation (pulse oximetry). This allows us to adjust anesthesia, IV fluids, and medications in order to create the safest anesthetic experience and smoothest recovery possible.
