Surgery is a necessary treatment option for a number of health conditions that our pets experience. At the Veterinary Clinic of Lubbock, we make every effort to ensure that our patients are safe and comfortable throughout their procedure by utilizing state-of-the-art technology and the most cutting edge surgical techniques.
Before each surgery, we conduct pre-surgical blood work to ensure that our patients are healthy enough to be anesthetized. We take a number of additional safety precautions including connecting our patients to:
- IV catheter which is used to administer fluids throughout surgery and in case of emergency
- Monitoring systems for heart rate, respiration, pulse, etc. to ensure that everything is functioning normally
- Heat blankets to help maintain the pet’s body temperature throughout the procedure
We utilize a number of exceptional, state-of-the-art surgical tools to help us provide the best care possible to our patients. We have the ability to perform laser surgery for a number of procedures, including spay, neuter, declaw, and tumor removal. This surgery modality allows for a cleaner cut resulting in faster healing, less bleeding, and less swelling.
