Our Precautions for Making Pet Surgery as Safe as Possible
Anesthesia can be risky for pets, just as it can be for humans. At Village Vet, we take every precaution to minimize risks during surgery.
These precautions include:
- Pre-anesthetic blood work to screen for underlying illnesses and check organ function
- Dedicated monitoring by an experienced veterinary technician throughout the surgery
- The use of state-of-the-art anesthesia and monitoring equipment to help us keep a close eye on your pet’s vitals
- Placement of an IV catheter to ensure the quick administration of fluids and medications as needed during surgery
- Administration of pain medication during and after surgery to improve your pet’s comfort
- The use of warm blankets to maintain a healthy body temperature for your pet and prevent hypothermia

What If My Pet Needs Orthopedic Surgery?
If your dog or cat has an orthopedic condition requiring surgery or they need a more complex soft-tissue procedure, we can connect you with a board-certified surgeon to perform the procedure. In some cases, we can have the surgeon come into our practice to do the surgery, so you and your pet will not need to travel elsewhere. However, if your pet will require extended hospitalization following their surgery, we can refer them to the appropriate facility to ensure they receive the care they need.
