Please know that when you leave your furry family member with us for any surgical procedure, his or her well being is our top priority. We want you to feel comfortable with the procedure that is being performed and that your pet is in safe capable hands. Our doctors and nursing staff are available to answer any questions or concerns that you may have in regards to your pet’s recommended or scheduled surgical procedure.
On the day of surgery, you will be introduced to one of our trained nursing staff when you arrive and check in for your pet’s surgery. They will review the scheduled procedure with you, give you information about what will be happening during your pet’s procedure and stay, and answer any questions.
Here we see a picture of Dr. Marvin and Sarah in surgery. This pet is undergoing a neutering procedure and is being carefully monitored during his surgery. Bellevue Animal Clinic provides every monitoring tool available to its surgery patients. Blood pressure, pulse oximetry, ECG, temperature control, intravenous support, and qualified trained staff, including Certified Veterinary Technicians, are utilized.
We also realize that many people have reservations about placing their pet under General Anesthesia. During your discussion at check-in, our nurses will recommend appropriate anesthetic screening and safety measures for your pet. Although we can not completely eliminate the chance of an anesthetic reaction occurring, we take every precaution to reduce these risks to their absolute minimum.
