As your trusted veterinarian in Rancho Cucamonga, we take our responsibility to your pets very seriously. If your pet needs a surgical procedure of any kind, our goal is to perform a precise, low-risk operation that improves their quality of life without causing complications. That's why we use laser therapy technology for most of our pet surgeries in Rancho Cucamonga, allowing us much greater precision with smaller cuts and less recovery time.
We know you want to be informed and prepared for your pet's operation. Here's our approach to pet surgery, from pre-op preparations to follow-up exams:
Prior to every pet surgery, your Rancho Cucamonga veterinarian will perform a physical and test your pet's blood to make sure they're fit for anesthesia. Our goal is to reduce your pet's health risks as much as possible, and our veterinarians have more than 18 years of experience preparing pets for successful surgeries.
Whether your parrot needs emergency surgery or your puppy needs to get spayed, we will do everything we can to reduce their risks and prevent complications during surgery. We have sky-high hygiene standards and strict monitoring protocols for each and every procedure, ensuring that each pet's vital signs stay in a healthy range as we proceed to each step. Your pet will be monitored by our attentive staff and state-of-the-art surgical equipment, which keeps track of heart rate and rhythm, respiratory rate, body temperature, and oxygen saturation rate throughout each procedure.
If your pet needs a complicated orthopedic procedure or any other high-risk or intensive operation, your Rancho Cucamonga veterinarian will probably recommend an overnight stay. These post-op stays allow us to provide round-the-clock monitoring as your pet recovers, closely control his or her movement and diet, and reduce the risk of complications when you return home.
Of course, your vet in Rancho Cucamonga also offers comprehensive follow-up care for all patients. Whether your pet has a routine outpatient procedure or needs to stay overnight, we will recommend a follow-up wellness exam shortly after surgery, and we may suggest additional visits to make sure they're healing properly. We will also send you home with any medications and special gear or food your pet may need as they heal. If you have any questions about your pet's recovery or the possible complications they may face, feel free to ask your Rancho Cucamonga vet during your next appointment or call our office during office hours.
