All GVA Hospitals are equipped with a sterile surgical suite, regularly maintained anesthesia machines, and a full array of vital sign monitoring equipment. We adhere to gold-standard protocols, including cap, mask and gown for all procedures. Pets are prepped outside of the surgical suite to maintain sterility, and are kept warm and monitored closely during recovery by a technician.
Our skilled doctors can perform many surgeries in-house, allowing for continuity of care for elective procedures, and minimizing transfer time in emergency situations. In some cases a pre-surgical consult will be scheduled to discuss risks, benefits, recovery, and any other concerns you may have regarding your pet’s surgical procedure.
