At Snowy Vets we are well equipped with surgical equipment and do a wide variety of orthopaedic and soft tissue procedures. We also continue to improve our surgical skills and practice gold standard procedures.
All of our surgeries include IV Fluids. They are used for all animals that undergo general anaesthesia. Fluid therapy protects animals against many of the negative effects of anaesthesia, making the safest we can and helping to improve recovery after the procedure.
Pre-anaesthetic blood testing Is an additional service we provide and highly recommend. Pre-GA blood testing give us indication of your pets organs; especially the liver, kidneys and blood are functioning before administration of an anaesthetic. Performing this quick and simple test, the morning of your pets surgery, allows us to maximises the safety for your pet whilst under anaesthetic. More information will be providing to your during the booking process.
A fully qualified nurse will with be with your pet throughout the whole process, right up until your pet wakes up in recovery. We also monitor at every step with an ECG monitor to ensure they are as safe as possible.
