Adobe Veterinary Center is committed to making your pet’s surgery as safe, comfortable, and stress-free as possible.
We include these steps in our neuter procedures for all dogs.
As in human medicine, the anesthetics available for our companion pets are extremely safe. As a result, the anesthetic risk is greatly minimized for a “healthy” pet. However, if your pet is not “healthy”, complications can occur both during and after the procedure. To minimize this potential risk, it is vital that we know your pet’s complete health status by performing a comprehensive physical exam and blood work before we administer an anesthetic. If the exam findings and blood work are normal we can proceed with confidence, knowing the anesthetic risk is minimized. On the other hand, if results are not within normal ranges, we will make the necessary changes with the anesthetic procedure to safeguard your pet. In some pets, the test abnormalities may be significant enough to postpone the procedure and instead monitor and medically treat your pet. Although these precautions cannot guarantee the absence of complications, they can significantly minimize risk and provide you and us with some peace of mind.
We work hard to keep our prices for our surgical procedures as low as possible without compromising the high level of service, safety and comfort we provide to your pets and thereby to you.
