New Hope Animal Hospital offers surgery options every day of the week Monday-Friday. Emergency surgery can be performed at any time. Routine surgery is scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday currently. We may be able to accommodate you another day if arrangements are made in advance. Whether the surgery is elective, emergency, or to diagnose a disease, it will be proficiently accomplished by one of our doctors. We offer the option of having a doctor scheduled to perform any orthopedic surgeries as needed. NHVH recommends every animal having surgery have preoperative blood work, and it is required in all pets over eight years of age. Each pet will receive an IV catheter, giving access to an open vein during surgery. This service is required for the safety of the pet during anesthesia. Receiving medications through the IV catheter makes the procedure more pleasant for the pet as well. Our surgical technicians are trained to monitor all of the surgical equipment as well as blood pressure, ECG, heart rate, respiratory rate, CO2 content, and body temperature. We strive to make the experience as positive and least invasive to your pet as possible. Each pet is closely monitored, and a pain management plan is set up as they are recovering from the anesthesia. You will also receive individual take-home instructions specific to your pet’s needs for recovery.
