Reducing Safety Risks and Discomfort
It’s natural to be concerned for your pet’s safety before they go into surgery, but we can help put you at ease. Here are some of the things we do to give your pet the best experience:
- We examine and screen every pet before their surgery to check for signs of poor health. Anesthesia and other factors can increase safety risks if your pet has an underlying health problem.
- All materials and equipment in the surgical suite are thoroughly sterilized and maintained at all times.
- We measure anesthesia, antibiotics, pain relief, and other medications according to your pet’s size, age, and overall condition.
- Our veterinarians and technicians are thoroughly trained in handling your pet with care, keeping them calm, and reading their vital signs accurately during their procedure. The monitoring equipment we use allows us to notice changes in your pet’s vitals immediately, including ECG and oxygen saturation.
- We use heated tables and blankets to maintain your pet’s body temperature.
- After surgery, your pet receives intensive care to make sure they’re comfortable and waking up safely.
At OrlandoVets, we give our clients the option of choosing laser surgery for their pets. This involves using a CO₂ surgical laser instead of a traditional scalpel to perform a spay or neuter, mass removal, or other procedure. The laser offers many advantages over traditional surgery, including:
- Killing bacteria in its path
- Allowing veterinarians to make a smaller incision
- Increasing the level of precision
- Sealing nerves and blood vessels as it travels and not crushing or bruising surrounding tissue
- Reducing pain, swelling, and bleeding after surgery
