Surgery

To help ensure your pet’s safety during surgery we use the safest anesthetic agents available.  A technician continually monitors your pet’s vital functions, including heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level, throughout the procedure and during recovery.  Because safety is our primary concern, our surgical suite and laboratory are equipped with the diagnostic instruments necessary to carefully monitor your pet.

Surgeries performed at our hospital include elective spays and neuters, abdominal surgeries, orthopaedic surgeries, and surgical repair of life-threatening injuries.  Some surgeries are complex and may require a specialist.  If this is the case, our doctors will refer your pet to a board certified veterinary surgeon.

Pain management is not only humane, but helps your pet feel better, heal more quickly, and may prevent adverse medical consequences associated with uncontrolled pain.   At the White Rock Veterinary Hospital, we feel that managing your pet’s pain is an important part of our commitment to your pet’s health.
