How We Reduce Risk During Surgery
Our goals are to keep your pet as safe as possible throughout their surgery and minimize their discomfort so they can experience a low-stress recovery. World of Animals Veterinary Hospital follows strict guidelines at every stage of your pet’s surgery to achieve these goals.
First, we require that all of our patients receive a physical examination and have pre-anesthetic blood work done before the day of their surgery. These steps help us screen for underlying health problems that could increase anesthesia risks for your pet. It also helps us create a tailored anesthesia and pain management protocol for your pet’s procedure.
Our team also connects your pet to an IV catheter for the quick administration of fluids and medications. Fluids maintain healthy blood pressure and keep your pet hydrated while they are under anesthesia.
