Surgical Services

  • Soft tissue and some orthopedic surgery
  • Advanced anesthesia monitoring
  • Early spay / neuter programs
  • Feline tendonectomies provided as an alternative to declawing

To ensure that your pet has a safe experience, we will:

  • perform pre-anesthetic blood tests for all pets over the age of 7
  • minimize anxiety by providing sedation in the pre-medication
  • place IV catheter and administer appropriate IV fluids controlled by a fluid pump
  • maintain a normal body temperature using a Bair hugger (warm air blanket)
  • use a Cardell Max12 HD to monitor heart rate, respiration rate, temperature, capnography, ecg and blood oxygen levels
  • will only use Isoflurane inhalation anesthetic (This allows for a quicker recovery since it is not metabolized by the liver and kidneys)
  • minimize pain by giving pain medication as needed
  • Give thorough discharge instructions for you and your family to follow at home to ensure a safe healing process
  • Always be available for questions once you get home. 

Early spay / neuter program

At the Foothills Animal Hospital, we recommend that puppies and kittens be spayed or neutered between 12 and 16 weeks of age. Benefits of this program include:

  • Significant decrease in blood loss during surgery
  • Shorter surgical times
  • Quicker recoveries
  • Less post-op discomfort
