Surgical Standard of Care
Animal Care Center of Pahrump’s mission is to provide exceptional veterinary care to achieve the best possible outcome for all our patients.
Offering Your Pet the Highest Standard of Surgical Care
Whether it’s a spay, neuter, dental cleaning, mass removal, or some other procedure, a general anesthetic surgery always carries a small element of risk.
At Animal Care Center of Pahrump, minimizing surgical risk is our number one priority! Of course, no veterinary hospital can guarantee that a surgical procedure will be free of complications, but we believe that certain precautions can help to reduce the risks and provide a safer surgical experience for your pet.
Pre-Anesthetic Examination: A complete physical examination includes a general evaluation of the pet’s overall health and helps to identify potential anesthesia risks and other potential problems.
Pre-Surgical Bloodwork: A chemistry profile and CBC helps us to be sure that kidneys, liver, and other internal organs are functioning properly to metabolize the anesthesia. Blood tests may also help us to detect underlying medical conditions that could impact the surgical procedure.
IV Catheterization and Fluids: Fluids help to keep the pet hydrated during the procedure and assists in clearing the anesthetic agents from the body after the surgery.
Anesthetic Monitoring: Our equipment monitors respiration, blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen levels, temperature, and EKG. An experienced technician monitors the parameters and adjusts the anesthesia as needed.
Peri-Operative Pain Management: We administer pain medications both before and after surgery to ensure a comfortable recovery.
Post-Operative Pain Management: We send pain medication home with the patient to reduce inflammation and pain.
There may be more inexpensive surgical options, but at the Animal Care Center of Pahrump, we are committed to providing your pet with the safest surgical experience possible!
