Meet Your Veterinarian

Examination, Diagnosis & Treatment
Once your pet has been examined, we will provide you with a diagnosis and treatment options. Your veterinary specialist will work with you to develop a treatment plan for your pet.
Following your visit, we will provide a written report summarizing your appointment and treatment plan.

- Which pain medications and anesthetic drugs are used during surgery?
Pain medications and anesthetics used during surgery can greatly influence your pet's comfort and safety. Modern anesthetic protocols should strive to block pain before it occurs while trying to block as many pain pathways as possible. Anesthetic medications should be chosen based on the safety of the drug.
The choice of medication used can have a great effect on the safety and comfort of your pet. For this reason, we strive to use the best possible medication and not the cheapest.
