Here at Barrie Animal Hospital, when surgery is performed on your pet, it is done using full sterile technique. A fully qualified Registered Veterinary Technician assists the veterinarian and monitors the patient throughout the entire surgical procedure. Heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen are monitored with specialized equipment throughout the surgery. We are able to provide our patients with safe, efficient surgery using up-to-date surgical and anesthesia equipment and techniques.
Regardless of the type of procedure, the utmost care is given to your pet's comfort and safety before, during and after surgery. Your pet will receive pain relief prior to and post surgically and will be monitored for pain during the recovery process. If more pain relief is necessary it will be administered.
We take pain management and the comfort of your pet very seriously. Pain medication will be sent home with complete instructions at the time of discharge that evening.
