Carolinas Veterinary Medical Hospital is prepared and equipped to perform a full range of surgical procedures. Our hospital is capable of handling routine spays and neuters, mass removals, exploratory surgeries and many different orthopedic procedures including, but not limited to: torn anterior cruciate ligaments, luxating patellas, and external fixators. Every anesthetic patient is monitored by a veterinary nurse as well as electronic devices which measure oxygen consumption, heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature. As an added safety precaution, each patient receives an IV catheter and fluids during surgery. Pre-anesthetic blood work is performed prior to all procedures. All surgery is performed in our large, sterile surgery suite. A surgical laser is utilized for most surgeries, reducing blood loss and pain. Pets recovering from anesthesia are monitored in our treatment area with heated beds and nursing care. Overnight patients are monitored with a 24 hour video surveillance.
