Surgical protocols at our clinic include:
Pre-surgical assessments. We will confirm the specifics of the procedure, perform a comprehensive physical examination of the patient, and make sure the blood tests have been completed and reviewed by the veterinarians in order to determine if your pet will face any risk of anesthesia-related complications.
Dedicated surgical suites. The veterinary surgeries at Animal General are performed in a dedicated surgical suite, which is a room is kept completely sterile and clean in order to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
Surgical attire. Our surgical staff wears disposable masks and caps the entire time they are in the surgical suite. Anyone involved in the procedure itself will also wear sterile gowns and single-use gloves.
Sterile packs and equipment. We carefully sterilize, clean, and wrap our surgical equipment and instruments before every surgery.
