Bridgeport WV Veterinary Hospital Veterinary Surgery

At Grace Animal Hospital, veterinary surgery is held to the highest standard of patient care and monitoring. All surgical procedures include the following:

  • A pre-surgical exam —To review your petís health and minimize anesthetic risk
  • Pre-anesthetic blood testing —To check liver and kidney function, and red and white blood cell count
  • IV catheter and warmed IV fluids —To keep your pet hydrated and to help maintain blood pressure and body temperature during surgery
  • Surgical monitoring —To monitor your petís heart and respiratory rates, blood pressure, level of oxygen in the blood, carbon dioxide level, and body temperature during surgery
  • Pain management —Providing pre-surgical pain medication and post-operative pain-relief drugs to take home
Pre-Surgery

A thorough pre-surgical examination and pre-anesthetic blood screening is performed on every patient prior to their scheduled surgery. This precaution ensures a safer surgical procedure for your pet.

Surgery Day

Your veterinarian will perform an examination to assess your petís condition and note any changes that may have occurred since the last visit. Following this, a detailed anesthetic plan is made to provide for pain management, IV fluid therapy, anesthetic monitoring, and any surgical emergency.

Our committed and caring veterinary surgical team ensures that every patient is closely monitored during anesthesia. Heart rate, electrocardiogram, blood pressure, blood-oxygen level, respiratory carbon dioxide level, and body temperature are all evaluated. Following the surgical guidelines set forth by AAHA, these procedures, protocols, and the expertise of our veterinary professionals provide assurance that your pet is receiving the highest standard of surgical care.

Post-Surgery

Once surgery is completed, a post-operative plan is developed to ensure your pet is comfortable and recovering smoothly from the anesthetic. When your pet is ready to go home, your veterinarian will complete a home care instruction sheet for you, listing important information about activity restriction, medications, and any necessary re-checks or follow-up procedures. Our compassionate pain management program includes post-surgical relief and medication for a comfortable recovery at home.

If your pet requires extended post-surgical care and recovery, we offer pet boarding and hospitalization services for medically complex or special needs patients.
