Cat and dog surgeries are often a stressful experience for both pets and owners. However, a procedure can be a life-changing and even life-saving experience. At our Medina animal hospital, we not only offer routine soft tissue surgery, but also laser and orthopedic surgery. While there are risks associated with anesthesia and any surgery, we uphold the highest standards to ensure each step of the process is as safe as possible for your pet. Call us today at (330) 239-1271.

Our Safety Standards: Anesthesia and Monitoring Equipment

Anesthesia is a big deal. At Akron-Medina Animal Hospital and Pet Resort, we take every precaution for your pet’s wellbeing as they undergo anesthesia. Before every procedure, we perform blood work and a physical exam to clear them for the planned surgery.

If for any reason we feel your pet may be at risk, we will reschedule or discuss different options with you. However, if they are cleared for pet surgery, we administer the anesthesia, tailored to your pet’s needs, and set them up with our state-of-the-art monitoring equipment.

When your pet undergoes surgery, dangerous changes in their body can happen in a flash. That’s why we do everything in our power to monitor your pet’s vital signs so we can catch any changes right away. We measure temperature, blood pressure, respiration levels, blood oxygen levels, as well as heart rate and rhythm. No matter what procedure your pet undergoes, we offer the same high standards for monitoring and care.

After-Surgery Care

Cat and dog surgeries are always trying on your pet. When they get home, they need a bit of extra loving care and patience.

Pain management is an important part of at home care. We provide pain management before every surgery to ensure the utmost comfort when your pet wakes from anesthesia, but ongoing medication may be needed to help them through recovery. Learn more about pain management here.
