Anesthesia and Pain Management

No pet owner wants their pet to undergo surgery. At The Veterinary Clinic, P.C. the medical team ensures that the pain your pet experiences is minimal through a range of anesthesia and pain management protocols.

During surgery, your pet will be intubated with inhaled anesthesia using isoflurane and sevoflurane. Veterinarians and skilled veterinary technicians monitor your pet's pulse with an oximeter during both surgery and recovery. These investments in the latest veterinary medicine and technology reflect the hospital's dedication to give your pet the best possible care.

We understand that your pet may experience pain for a time while they are recovering from surgery. We administer post-operative pain management via injectable and oral pain medications. Furthermore, The Veterinary Clinic, P.C.'s state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with laser therapy, which helps with arthritis, post-operative care, as well as enhanced wound and surgical healing.

Radiosurgery

To better care for your pet, The Veterinary Clinic, P.C. provides advanced radiosurgical care. Very high frequency radio waves are transmitted between a plastic-coated antenna and a small needle electrode held by the surgeon. Heat is induced only in the cells that are in contact with the needle electrode. The small amount of heat that is generated gives the surgeon the ability to cut with simultaneous coagulation. According to some researchers, radiosurgery is superior to laser surgery in minimizing tissue damage, alleviating pain and controlling bleeding.

Radiosurgery has many veterinary applications, including skin incisions, tumor dissection, organ biopsy, gingivectomy and epilation. We use radiosurgery because it is safe, straightforward and highly effective.
