Surgery: From Simple Procedures to Highly Complex
Animal Laser Surgery
Laser pet veterinary surgery is one of the most humane surgical techniques available for your pet. Laser surgery minimizes bleeding by cauterizing and sealing small blood vessels, reduces pain by sealing nerve endings as it passes through tissue, limits swelling because there is no physical contact between the laser and surgical area, and reduces the risk of infection. In all, a laser promotes more rapid healing after a surgical procedure as well as reduces the risks of undergoing surgery.
For this reason, Ace Animal Hospital in Fremont, CA — your veterinary surgery specialists is equipped with this very important surgical tool and use it to replace scalpels in a number of the procedures we perform.
Pet Post-Surgery: Anesthesia and Monitoring
Anesthesia and cardiovascular monitoring after you pet’s surgery are important, integral aspects of every veterinary surgery we perform. For this reason, your pet has access to the best and most advanced anesthetic administration and cardiovascular monitoring equipment and protocols.
Prior to anesthesia all pets are examined by a doctor and a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these on-location Fremont pet surgery tests and your pets past anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet.
During anesthesia and surgery, your pet is constantly monitored by a trained veterinary technician, using our advanced monitoring system. This system continuously monitors your pet’s arterial oxygen level, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and core body temperature. We also apply heat therapy to ensure a safe body temperature is maintained throughout the procedure.
Ace Animal Hospital, serving the Fremont area and beyond, also believes that identifying and relieving pain is essential to the recovery of your pet after veterinary surgery. Therefore, pain management is an important aspect of our intra- and post-surgical protocols.
At discharge, we may also send additional post-op pet surgery pain management medication home with you and your pet after providing a thorough explanation of its proper use and dosage.
