Soft tissue surgery is a very broad category involving head and neck surgery, cardiovascular (heart), pulmonary (lung), gastrointestinal (stomach, intestine, liver, pancreas), and urogenital (kidneys and bladder) surgery. The doctors at AVCG have acquired experience with many advanced surgical procedures. We use the highest standards of care and equipment to achieve favorable outcomes for the surgical patient.
Safety for all anesthetic and surgical patients is of primary importance to the staff at AVCG. We have instituted the highest standards of pre-operative care to ensure favorable outcomes for all patients. Along with the diagnostic tests performed by your Veterinarian, we always perform specific tests to evaluate the health of your pet prior to anesthetic induction. These include:
- Digital Thoracic Radiographs (X-rays)
- Pre-operative ECG with Boarded telemedicine interpretation
- Venous Blood Gases
- Coagulation Panel (cPT and cPTT)
Additionally all patients are supported intra-operatively with intravenous fluids appropriate for the pet’s condition.
