At Aspen Grove, a procedure performed using a surgical laser, which decreases pain, bleeding, and other post-op complications. Learn more about the advantages of laser surgery.
Proper pain control from beginning to end of any anesthetic procedure is crucial for a fully successful outcome. Here at Aspen Grove Vet Care, we use a multi-modal approach to pain management, which can include injectable and oral medications, local and regional nerve blocks (anesthetics), and laser therapy.
Pre-surgical screening is optional for clients, but very highly encouraged and recommended regardless of your pet’s age.
A pre-surgical blood test gives us a window to look inside your pet’s body and ensure all of the organs are functioning correctly and can process the anesthesia safely. Routine anesthesia and surgery is very safe with a low rate of complications. Occasional problems can arise due to pre-existing conditions not evident during a physical examination.
