Pets in Staten Island Get the Most Up-to-Date Surgical Care
At Pleasant Plains Animal Hospital, we’ve dedicated ourselves to providing your pet with up-to-date, safe surgical options. We have a staff which is extremely skilled in doing many different kinds of veterinary surgical procedures — from the most routine procedures, like neutering and spraying, to the most complex procedures. Additionally, we have a board-certified surgeon who performs the specialized procedures in the area of orthopedics right at Pleasant Plains Animal Hospital.
Before surgery, a veterinarian will completely examine your pet and do a pre-operative blood panel to ensure that they are well enough to be anesthetized. Throughout the procedure, your pet will be monitored by a veterinary technician who has been highly trained. The technician will ensure that their blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, oxygenation, and respiratory rate are all within safe levels using the most modern technology.
Care That Is Compassionate Prior To, During, And Following The Surgery
One of the most important things to successful surgery recovery is total management of pain. At Pleasant Plains Animal Hospital, we have committed ourselves to making sure that all of our patients are comfortable prior to, during, and following their surgery. It’s been proven that giving pain medicine before starting surgery will greatly reduce the pain that is felt after the surgery. This pre-medication also helps with reducing anxiety and stress in your pet.
Pain relief following surgery also will have a big impact on the recovery of your pet. It will significantly affect their activity and attitude when they return home to your care. When it’s time to take your pet home, we’re going to address any concerns or questions you have regarding the surgery, including anesthesia affects, pain management, or caring for your pet after the surgery.
