Diagnostic tests are absolutely essential to find out what is going on inside your pet. Some diagnostics are recommended for routine wellness screenings, and other tests are utilized to help guide treatment choices for sick patients.

Our surgeons are experienced at performing routine soft tissue surgeries - including spays, neuters, and lump removals. The surgery team also includes our experienced veterinary technicians who closely monitor anesthetized patients and provide compassionate post-op care.
Our team rigorously monitors anesthesia and cardiovascular functioning throughout each stage of surgery- from pre-surgical sedation to complete recovery. An exam and pre-surgical bloodwork is conducted to determine what is best anesthesia protocol for your pet. For instance, we consider factors such as the type of procedure, pre-existing conditions, blood test values, breed, and prior anesthetic experience.
