Why we are the best choice for your pet's surgical needs

Many pet owners are curious about what is involved when their pet is placed under anesthesia. At Parkside Animal Care Center, your pet's safety and comfort are our top priority so you can be sure that your pet will receive only the best and safest anesthetic and surgical care.

All surgical patients are required to have a complete physical exam by our doctor and blood work prior to surgery to ensure the safety of the anesthesia. All patients have their pain levels monitored and controlled before, during, and after any surgical procedure. We have patient monitors in both our surgical suite and dental area to ensure all anesthetized patients are appropriately monitored.

  • Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work—ensures your pet is healthy enough to undergo a surgical procedure and that its internal organs can safely process the anesthesia.

  • Safe Anesthesia—a very safe anesthetic gas which is also used in human pediatric medicine.

  • Experienced Monitoring Support—our trained technicians use state-of-the-art anesthetic monitors to continuously monitor your pet's pulse rate, oxygen levels and blood pressure.

  • IV Catheter Placement—fluids are given during surgery to maintain blood pressure and to help your pet recover quickly from the anesthesia.

  • Pain Medication—is administered prior to and after surgery to ensure your pet's comfort.
