Your pet’s assigned surgery technician will care for your pet on the day of their procedure. The Technician will prepare your pet for surgery by placing an IV catheter to administer anesthetic and pain medication. During surgery, the Technician will monitor your pet’s heart rate, blood oxygen levels, blood pressure, heart function, and temperature. Once the procedure is complete, your pet’s assigned technician will monitor them after surgery in our intensive care unit. They will administer further pain relief if needed, ensure that your pet is able to eat, drink, and go to the bathroom on their own before returning home.
