We strive to make your pet’s surgical procedure as stress free as possible by using the latest veterinary surgical equipment, care, and compassion.
Our hospital is capable of handling a wide range of surgical cases, from routine spay or neuter procedures to more complex soft-tissue surgical and bone procedures. We maintain a modern surgical operating room for all surgeries and provide intensive and critical care for our patients.
We want your pet to be as safe and pain free as possible during surgery. We utilize modern and safe anesthetic techniques, comparable to those found in human hospitals. During and after surgery, we continuously monitor your pet’s vital signs. We use the latest technology, including pulse oximetry. Heated blankets are used to keep your pet warm during and after surgery. A veterinary technician monitors every breath your pet takes during surgery and is with your pet until he or she wakes up and is up and around. When your pet wakes up we will personally call you on the telephone to let you know the surgery is over and the status of your pet. Know also our monitoring of your pet continues until your pet is released to you with take home instructions and medication instructions.
When your pet is pain free, he or she heals and recovers more quickly. All surgical patients receive pain management medication during and following surgery in order to relieve pain and promote a fast recovery. At Blais Veterinary Hospital & Clinic – Indiana PA eastern medicine may be combined with western pain medications. Pain management is available with the traditional western medications and if you prefer, acupuncture is performed and herbs are prescribed to lessen stress and to provide a quicker recovery.
