Why we are the best choice for your pet's surgical needs
Many pet owners are curious about what is involved when their pet is placed under anesthesia. At Inwood Animal Center, your pet's safety and comfort are our top priority so you can be sure that your pet will receive only the best and safest anesthetic and surgical care.
Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work is not required although it is still available as an option. This ensures your pet is healthy enough to undergo a surgical procedure and that its internal organs can safely process the anesthesia.
Our procedures include the following:
- Safe Anesthesia—a very safe anesthetic gas which is also used in human pediatric medicine.
- Experienced Monitoring Support—our trained technicians use state-of-the-art anesthetic monitors to continuously monitor your pet's pulse rate, oxygen levels and blood pressure.
- IV Catheter Placement—fluids are given during surgery to maintain blood pressure and to help your pet recover quickly from the anesthesia.
- Pain Medication—is administered prior to and after surgery to ensure your pet's comfort.
Visiting Veterinary Surgeon — Dr. Tibor Lazar
We utilize a visiting veterinary surgeon, Dr. Lazar, to perform more complicated or orthopedic procedures. In this way, we can accomplish ACL repairs (knee repair surgery), TPLO procedures, splenectomy, large or intra-abdominal tumor removal, amputations and fracture repairs.
Dr. Lazar offers in-house surgical services so that pet owners don’t need to travel elsewhere for the advanced surgery a pet requires. Instead, pet owners can feel secure that their pets remain in the care of their trusted family veterinarian. Dr. Lazar is available by appointment.
