Information on proper postoperative care is provided and we answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable that you are making the right choice for your pet.
The procedures we perform include, but are not limited to:
The importance of your pet’s health and safety during surgery requires a specific anesthetic and monitoring protocol.
A pre-surgical exam is required to ensure that your pet receives the proper anesthesia protocol. Your pet will be examined and/or a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and your pets past anesthetic history, age, and preexisting conditions are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet.
While under anesthesia your pet will be cared for by a well-trained and experienced veterinary technician who will be monitoring heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, oxygen level and gas levels. They have the ability to address any issues if applicable.
Pain management is vital for your pet. Patients are fully monitored by our veterinary technicians while they are in our care. The doctors and staff at Bogalusa Animal Clinic take all necessary steps to relieve any discomfort before, during and after any surgical procedure. We alter our approach to your pet's specific needs.
