Our Services

Surgical Services at Best Friend Vet

At Best Friend, our surgical suite and equipment are state of the art, and our dedicated anesthesia technicians monitor every procedure. Each patient is continuously monitored for EKG, Pulse Oximetry, Blood Pressure, and Body Temperature. Both doctors and technicians are specially trained, and pursue continuing education opportunities to keep up-to-date with current procedures. A full physical exam and preanesthetic blood work are performed on each presurgical patient. Families are encouraged to ask questions at presurgical consults, and communication before and after the procedure is a priority to us. Patients need to fast before sedation and/or anesthesia. They should not eat anything after 8PM the night before their procedure. Normal water drinking overnight is OK, but excessive water drinking in the morning should be avoided. Please discuss all current medications and supplements with your doctor at your presurgical exam, along with any concurrent health issues. Your pet’s surgical plan will be customized to their health history.

Soft Tissue Surgery

This is any surgery not related to bones or joints. It can be routine elective procedures, such as neuters and spays, to much more complicated intra-abdominal surgeries. Our veterinary personnel does a careful evaluation that determines whether or not your pet requires soft tissue surgery. We strive to make your pet’s procedure as safe and comfortable as possible before, during, and after the surgery. Our veterinarians use the safest and most effective anesthesia to manage your pet’s pain during soft tissue surgery. We will closely monitor your pet’s vitals throughout the process.

Ortopedic Surgery
Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
