Mentor Animal Hospital offers comprehensive surgical care. We use the safest anesthetic protocols available. Pets are examined and carefully evaluated before any sedation or anesthesia is given. When necessary, an intravenous catheter is placed and fluid therapy is utilized to support the cardiovascular system and assure a smooth recovery. An EKG, heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen levels, and temperature are continuously monitored during every anesthetic procedure. We frequently consult with veterinary surgical specialists and utilize the most current surgical techniques. We use a wide variety of post operative pain medication. Below are some of the surgical conditions we treat at Mentor Animal Hospital. For more information, see our Library page.
