Apples and Apples, or Apples and Oranges?
Consumers often price compare routine surgical services such as spay, neuter, and declaw. Red Bank Veterinary Hospital feels it is important to make you aware of what is included in our service at no additional cost, why it is included, and why those services are important. For the health and safety of your pet, please make sure you compare apples to apples before your pet goes "under the knife."
Included in our service and critical for the safety of your pet while under anesthesia:
1) Lab work: Your pet will receive basic lab work which will detect anemia, dehydration, and an overview of kidney function.
2) Intravenous catheter and fluids: The catheter and line allows immediate access to your pet's blood stream for emergency administration of drugs, and the fluid supports blood volume and blood pressure during surgery.
3) Patient Monitoring Includes Blood Pressure, EKG and SpO2 Monitoring: Falling blood pressure is the earliest sign of anesthetic or surgical complications. Careful monitoring of blood pressure allows us to intervene before it is too late. EKG monitoring allows us to monitor the rate and rhythm of the heart beat while under anesthesia. SpO2 monitors the level of Oxygen in the blood and tissues. You would not want surgery performed on yourself without blood pressure, heart or oxygen levels being monitored, and we recommend you make sure your pet receives it.
4) A trained Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT): At Red Bank Veterinary Hospital during anesthesia, a RVT is dedicated to the monitoring of your pet from induction (going under) until recovery (waking up). Blood Pressure, heart monitoring, respiration, and many other parameters are monitored throughout your pet's anesthesia. Why is this important? You can have all the bells and whistles in the world attached but without someone paying attention they provide no protection.
5) State of the art anesthetic drugs and protocols: The anesthetic agents and protocols at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital are tailored to each individual patient. The Red Bank Veterinary staff regularly participates in anesthesia continuing education to maintain proficiency and stay abreast of the latest developments in the field. Each patient receives preemptive pain medication along with a tranquilizer prior to undergoing anesthesia. This calms the patient and allows us to reduce the anesthetic agent used, as well as having pain control prior to surgery.
