Our surgery suite is equipped with 2 isoflurane gas anesthsia machines and a pulse oximeter monitor ensuring that your pet will be safe while under anesthesia. Many surgical procedures can be done with the variety of instruments that are available for the doctors to use during surgery. All surgical packs and equipment are sterilized in an autoclave prior to each surgery.
Taking digital images is much safer for your pet and the image is so much better than with the old cassettes. The dark room is no longer needed since the new image will appear on the medical monitor within seconds of the x-ray being taken. We can e-mail the images where ever they need to go and you can even take the image home with you on a CD.
