The latest techniques are used by Countryside Animal Clinic in the surgical suite of our animal hospital. Laser surgery is utilized to decrease bleeding during surgery, improve healing, and make more accurate incisions and removal of masses or tumors. If surgery is indicated for your pet, our caring staff will do preliminary blood work prior to surgery to insure your pet does not have an underlying condition which may make surgery more difficult. On the day of surgery your pet will be carefully sedated and given pain medication prior to undergoing anesthesia. Once surgery has started, your pet’s vital signs will be continuously monitored to make sure their vital signs are stable. After the procedure is finished, your pet will be gently woken up and monitored until it is deemed safe to send them home with you to recuperate where they are most comfortable: at home with you!
