Parkway Animal Hospital's
Isoflurane gas anesthesia and modern methods are only part of the picture; monitoring and attention to our patients is also key. Your pet's safety is our primary concern! Pre-anesthetic blood testing is recommended, and if there is a problem with your pet’s blood tests, you can expect a call from us, and we’ll postpone the procedure until the problem is addressed.
During ALL anesthetic procedures we continually monitor your pets blood pressure, tidal CO2, pulse oximeter, heart rate, ECG, and body temperature. An IV catheter will also be used in order to continually administer IV fluids during anesthesia, and pain medications as needed.
We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Surgical services and facilities include: fully trained veterinary and technical staff, to ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet; heated surgery tables and circulating warm water pads are employed for greater comfort; ECG, blood pressure, heart rate, body temperatures and oxygen saturation monitors are used in all procedures; advanced sterilization techniques are used; Recovery after surgery is carefully monitored, and pain medication is tailored to your pets needs.
A laser is an opto-electronic device that produces highly concentrated light rays. The interaction of laser light with tissue provides a different approach to surgery. In laser surgery, a highly focused laser beam can efficiently ablate (either vaporize or chip away) the living tissue, while it seals (welds) capillaries, small blood vessels, and nerve endings. The majority of surgeries performed at Parkway Animal Hospital include the use of a laser scalpel. For your pet, laser surgery means less pain, less bleeding, a reduced risk of infection, and a faster recovery time.
Our veterinary staff includes specialists able to perform most eye, soft tissue and orthopedic surgical procedures. In the event a specialist is needed our staff will help you make arrangements for your pet at the recommended doctor. Board certified surgeons can also be scheduled to perform surgeries at Parkway Animal Hospital.
