Why we are the best choice for your pet's surgical needs

We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. Many pet owners are curious about what is involved when their pet is placed under anesthesia. At Finger Lakes Animal Hospital, your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priority, so you can be sure that anesthetics are specifically tailored to meet your pet's needs.

Pet Surgery at Finger Lakes Animal HospitalOur surgical procedures include the following:

  • Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work—ensures your pet is healthy enough to undergo a surgical procedure and that its internal organs can safely process the anesthesia.

  • Safe Anesthesia—a very safe anesthetic gas which is also used in human pediatric medicine.

  • Experienced Monitoring Support—our trained technicians use state-of-the-art anesthetic monitors to continuously monitor your pet’s pulse rate, oxygen levels and blood pressure. Multi-modal monitors are used during surgery.

  • IV Catheter Placement—fluids are given during surgery to maintain blood pressure and to help your pet recover quickly from the anesthesia.

  • Pain Medication—is administered prior to and after surgery to ensure your pet’s comfort. Heating pads also add to your pet's greater comfort.
