Veterinary Surgery

Presidio Way Veterinary Hospital can give your pet many options if surgery is indicated. Our veterinarians are able to perform many different types of procedures your pet might need.

  • Spay or neuter
  • Soft tissue
  • Laceration repair
  • Chemotherapy
  • Tumor removal
  • Orthopedic

Presidio Way Veterinary Hospital employs thorough anesthetic monitoring. Blood pressure and CO2 levels, as well as heart rate and temperature, are observed moment to moment.

Anesthesia

Presidio Way uses sevoflurane, the safest inhalant anesthetic. Using sevoflurane provides assurance that your pet will not experience any difficulties during surgical procedures. Dogs and cats as old as 22 years can safely be anesthetized.

An intravenous (IV) line will be placed so that we may give fluids to maintain blood pressure and support good liver and kidney function. Constant monitoring of your pet gives us even more assurance of safety. Machines tell us blood pressure, tissue oxygen percentage, heart rate, and carbon dioxide levels. Continual feedback from the monitors and the use of sevoflurane ensures that your pet’s anesthesia will be very safe.

Communication & Cooperation

Before any surgical procedure, Presidio Way Veterinary Hospital will perform pre-anesthetic blood tests to make sure that your pet is well enough for surgery. Your pet will be given intravenous (IV) fluids, kept warm, and monitored throughout the procedure.

We have an ongoing relationship with a board-certified specialist in veterinary surgery who comes to Presidio Way to perform a variety of procedures. You can be sure that your pet will get the best surgical technique during the operation and quality aftercare from the veterinarian and technicians you’ve come to know.
