All surgeries are done in our aseptic surgical room right here in our north Austin animal hospital. Our equipment allows us to monitor (on screen and in print) oxygen saturation, blood pressure, pulse rate, respiratory rate, and continuous electrocardiogram (ECG) during anesthetic procedures. Our surgical equipment includes a CO2 laser surgical device. We adhere to the strictest and most up-to-date protocols for anesthesia and pain management. The anesthetic we use, isoflurane, is the same anesthetic that is used in human hospitals. All animals are kept warm with our heated surgical table and Bair Hugger patient warmer.
