At Petsadena Animal Hospital, our team of veterinary professionals understand how important pets are to families. Dogs and cats are the smallest of family members but carry a huge part of your heart! When it comes to requiring surgical procedures, the team of this Pasadena veterinary practice wants to ensure pets’ comfort and safety. Our practice has the equipment and experience to provide anesthesia during surgical procedures right in our facility.
Surgical procedures performed by Dr. Evelyn Sagastume, DVM are done with the administration of anesthesia. Anesthesia provides comfort for the pets and we ensure safety throughout procedures. When anesthesia is used, our team closely monitors hydration from start to finish. Fluids are given through intravenous catheterization to ensure adequate circulation and immediate access to the bloodstream in the event of a complication. Vital signs are closely monitored to keep an eye on blood pressure, breathing rates, heart rates, and oxygen levels.
There are several procedures that may be done under anesthesia, which may include bladder stone removal, tumor excision, dental procedures, and spay and neuter. We assess pets thoroughly with an initial screening before having them undergo anesthesia. This screening is done prior to treatment to ensure there are no problems present that could cause concerns while under anesthesia. Pets who undergo surgeries at our practice often go home the same day as their procedure. If hospitalization is necessary, our team discusses this beforehand. At Petsadena Animal Hospital, we know pet parents expect quality, comprehensive care for their animals and we meet and exceed those expectations every time!
