Why Choose VREC For Your Pet’s Surgery?
Surgeons are an integral part of the veterinary medical community as they are routinely consulting and advising with primary care veterinarians. Our experienced, knowledgeable surgeons possess the expertise and technical abilities to meet and exceed needs of our four-legged family members. Our surgery team has access to specialized instrumentation and sophisticated equipment that allows them to solve a wide array of surgical conditions, including orthopedic, soft tissue, neurologic, oncologic (cancer), and thoracic problems.
From anesthesia to the operating room, our team of doctors and veterinary staff is highly practiced in monitoring and managing the comfort level of your pet, ensuring the most pain-free experience possible. We employ pain management before, during, and after surgery to provide as little stress to your pet as possible. Our approach is multifaceted; we incorporate multiple modalities – epidurals, constant rate infusions (CRI), and local agents to numb specific tissues and nerves – to ensure the comprehensive evaluation and treatment of the patient. The integration of these perspectives is essential to treating pain in animals and establishing continuity of care.
Our veterinary support staff knows how to handle your pet safely and with affection and understands that healing has a great deal to do with bedside manner. Post-operatively, surgical patients recover in the intensive care unit under the direct supervision of doctors, licensed veterinary technicians, and veterinary assistants. The partnership between you, your primary care veterinarian, and our referral and emergency doctors ensure that your pet will receive the most complete care available. Your primary care veterinarian will receive regular updates from our doctors to continually keep them apprised of your pet’s progress and response to treatment. Feel free to call us at any time if you have any questions.
