Pet Surgery in Big Spring, TX
Our veterinary team will be diligent in ensuring we cure your pet’s ailment and call you with the good news during the operation. Multiple members of our staff will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly in the operating room. Once your pet is out of surgery, we’ll contact you immediately and make sure that you have all of the information to bring your pet home and make sure that they’re comfortable and ready to begin healing. We may also need to schedule follow-up appointments to make sure the healing process is going well.
Trauma cases, routine orthopedic problems, and general surgical cases are also treated with special needs cases being referred to specialists.
We begin most general anesthetic procedures by administering a sedative to help the pet relax and decrease any anxiety and pain. We then administer an intravenous drug to provide complete anesthesia and place a breathing tube into the patient’s trachea (windpipe). To maintain the state of unconsciousness, we deliver a gas anesthetic in combination with oxygen through the breathing tube.
Please feel free to ask us about our patient monitoring protocol or any concerns you might have about your pet’s procedure. We’d be happy to discuss these matters in more detail.
