Northlake Veterinary Hospital offers the Northshore region a state-of-the-art surgical suite equipped with innovative tools that enable our licensed veterinarians to provide the best care possible for your pet. Our doctors always recommend running blood work on your four-legged friend prior to any surgery. Blood work can help make sure that your pet is healthy enough for surgery and uncover any potential issues that may not appear in a normal physical exam.
During pre-operative procedures, giving pain medication is recommended in order to keep your pet as comfortable as possible during surgery. Studies have shown that animals experience pain much like people do. As the procedure begins and after it is completed, the veterinarian constantly monitors your pet’s vital signs including heart rate and blood oxygen levels. Anesthesia will be safely administered to your pet throughout the duration of your pet’s surgical procedure. At the conclusion of the treatment, your pet will be kept warm and will continue to be monitored throughout the recovery period.
Our skilled veterinarians have successfully performed countless surgical procedures on local pets and will bring that same level of care to your pet. Northlake Veterinary Hospital is prepared to handle nearly all surgical needs and will refer you and your pet to a specialist should the need arise.
