Our in-house laboratory provides swift and decisive assessments. On the day of surgery, your pet will be admitted and you will be kept apprised of your pet’s condition with regular contact from your pet’s veterinary surgeon and their assigned nurse. Your pet will not leave us without a laser therapy treatment to soothe their pain and promote healing. Pain medication will be prescribed as needed and you can pick it up at our pharmacy when your pet is discharged.


We have equipped our hospital with a full surgical suite. While your pet is under anesthesia, they rest on a thermal waterbed and beneath a hot air blanket that will keep them comfortable. The room is equipped with highly attuned tools to track your pet’s vitals during anesthesia and recovery. Pulse rate, blood pressure, heart activity, and core body temperature are just some of the components that are meticulously monitored by a dedicated nurse.
