Juneau Veterinary Hospital has a state-of-the art surgical suite where our veterinarians perform procedures, including:
Spay and neuter
Laceration and wound repair
Juneau Veterinary Hospital’s veterinarians maintain the highest standards of care for all surgical procedures. We use inhalation (gas) anesthesia, one of the safest available anesthetics. Using the most current technology, your pet’s vital signs are monitored by our trained veterinary technicians, who will remain with your pet through recovery.
Comprehensive Pet Surgical Care
Your pet will have an IV catheter placed in his or her front leg so fluids can be given during the procedure, and we administer a pre-anesthetic injection to calm anxiety. During any procedure, your pet is kept warm and is monitored continually for blood pressure, heart rate, mucus membrane color, capillary refill time, breaths per minute, oxygen level, and body temperature throughout the surgery.
Routine surgeries may be postponed if an emergency case presents itself to us or if your pet is not well enough for the procedure. We feel unnecessary risks must be avoided and will take precautions to minimize potential complications. If there are concerns with diagnostic results or your pet’s condition warrants it, we may need to treat your pet with medication and/or diet prior to his or her anesthetic procedure. We will reschedule your pet for another time, after the doctor clears him or her for anesthesia.
