Surgery Guidelines Pt 5: Cost of Surgery

Cost of surgery can vary dependent upon the time it takes to complete the procedure. For non-routine procedures, we try to give an accurate quote in regards to the price but must give a range to allow for lengthier procedures or complications during surgery. Sometimes, we expect a surgery to take a specific amount of time but then find the procedure is more involved than anticipated. Other services we perform during the surgery can include but are not limited to OR Usage and supplies. The use of multiple suture packs are tracked during surgery, surgical instrument use, sterilization fees, sterile

Surgery Guidelines Pt 4: Pain Medication

Pain Medications: Pain management is recommended for any pet that is or will be experiencing any type of discomfort. Typically, a medication is used to reduce inflammation that is the source of the pain. In more severe cases, a narcotic agent is used. Pain management not only helps your pet feel better during their recovery, it also aids in the healing process. A pet that is painful is more likely to be stressed and to lick or chew at the incision. If we are able to keep them from licking and keep them comfortable, they heal at a much faster

Surery Guidelines Pt 3: Laser

Laser: We recommend the use of laser for several reasons that all benefit your pet. Number one, the laser makes an incision and stops the bleeding all at the same time. Number two, your pet’s incision will heal quicker after the surgery. Number three, your pet will experience less pain from the incision. Laser use is less traumatic to the tissue than a scalpel blade and this is why it hurts less and heals quicker. . vets in chandler, az 85248, 85249 pet hospital, veterinary clinic

Surgery Guidelines Pt 2: IV Catheter & Fluids

IV Catheter & Fluids: We recommend an IV catheter with every anesthetic procedure. An IV catheter establishes a life-line. Not only can we administer fluids during the procedure, we are also able to administer life-saving medications should a problem arise during anesthesia. A normal side effect of anesthesia is low blood pressure. By administering IV fluids, we increase the volume in the blood stream which in turn, increases the blood pressure. The benefit is that we are able to maintain a normal blood pressure during anesthesia so that vital organs are not damaged from a lack of blood flow. We

Surgery Guidelines: Pt 1 Blood Tests

Blood testing prior to any surgical procedure whether it be a spay, neuter, soft tissue procedure or dentistry provides important information to the doctor before putting a pet under anesthesia. Blood work will ensure that your pet’s liver and kidney function are normal as well as their clotting factors and immune system. (READ Understanding your pet’s bloodwork here) Part of the tests let us know how the liver and kidneys are functioning. The liver and the kidneys are responsible for metabolizing the anesthesia and if they are not working properly, your pet could have complications with the anesthesia. Everyone has

Spring has Sprung and so have pet allergies!

Spring has indeed sprung in the Valley of the Sun. We are blessed with desert beauty but we are also burdened with pollen. People and pets alike suffer from allergies as a result of this burden. Itching, face rubbing, head shaking and leg licking are all recognized as symptoms of allergies in dogs. Skin and ear infections are also common symptoms of allergies. Some dogs have such severe allergies that they damage their skin to the point of bleeding. Once the skin is broken, bacteria sets in and can cause a secondary infection creating an even bigger problem when left
