Surgery and Anesthesia
No doubt anesthesia is scary! We do everything we can to help alleviate your concerns.
At Companion Animal Care, surgery is performed to the same standard as in human medicine. We require pre-anesthetic bloodwork to be sure there are no identifiable problems that may cause any issues or interfere with anesthesia.
We place an IV catheter in each and every surgery to maintain blood pressure with intravenous fluids during anesthesia and during recovery. This helps to keep all the organs perfused and oxygenated during the procedure. It also allows us immediate venous access in the rare case that an emergency should arise during the procedure.
We use the same anesthetics that are used in human medicine to pre-medicate and anesthetize the patient and also to control any undue pain.
Every patient's vitals are monitored with the use of a state-of-the-art medical monitors. We monitor temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation and, CO2 levels of the blood. We also have an ECG running during anesthesia to help determine how the patient is doing while under anesthesia.
At our Shelby Twp location, we perform spays, neuters, declaws, biopsies, growth removals and other surgeries. We wear gowns, caps, masks and gloves during any sterile procedure. Instruments are cleaned and sterilized between all surgeries. We use only quality suture material in individually sterilized packets. A new, sharp and sterile surgical blade is used on every patient.
Beware of low-cost spay / neuter clinics that cut corners on quality and do not adhere to the standards listed above!
Dental Cleanings and Your Pet's Oral Health
Just as with humans who brush daily, many pets need to visit the dentist yearly also. Over 75% of dogs and cats have significant dental disease by the time they are only three years old. We perform a dental check each time we see your pet for his or her Wellness exam. At times, we will recommend a Complete Oral Health Assessment and Treatment, or COHAT, if problems are found during the physical exam.
Our routine COHAT includes general anesthesia, probing and charting of all teeth, scaling of tartar, polishing and if needed, x-rays and extractions of any diseased or problematic teeth.
Comprehensive pain management (including Novocaine-like nerve blocks) along with safe, tailored anesthetic protocols are included with each and every COHAT.
