Dr. Klone is our clinic surgeon. She enjoys doing surgeries!
Most pets have at least one surgery in their lives; a spay or neuter. While this is often one of the most common procedures, it is only a portion of what we do on a daily basis. We often find ourselves removing tumors or repairing wounds, too.
We utilize multimodal anesthetic protocols, which just means we use several medications to keep your pet under anesthesia. We use sedatives and pain controllers to help reduce the amount of gas anesthetic that we need to use. Local anesthetics, like lidocaine, are also used regularly. This makes the anesthesia safer and often shorter for your pet. It also means they wake up more quickly, more comfortably, and more smoothly.
