Kanyon’s Golden: Pet Surgery Performed to Human Standards
Here at Kanyon’s Golden Veterinary Care, our surgical procedures are up to human standards. From pre-anesthetic examination and blood work, to extensive monitoring and surgical parameters, your pets are provided the same surgical experience their human family members enjoy.
Offering surgical procedures from the traditional, such as spaying and neutering or extraction of retained puppy teeth, to hereditary conditions requiring surgical intervention such as elongated soft palate, stenotic nares, or entropion, to the medically necessary procedures, such as foreign body, fracture, or tumor removal, the professionals at Kanyon’s Golden will help see you and your pet through what is often a stressful event.
Our newest surgical instrument in cryotherapy offers a holistic approach to procedures that would have required general anesthesia. Using compressed gas, this instrument allows for extremely accurate, effective, safe surgical removal of various skin masses and tumors using no or minimal sedation. This non-invasive, cost effective, treatment option means improved health for our patients at Kanyon’s Gold.
Cryosurgery may be used for:
- Perianal adenomas
- Eyelid tumors
- Sebaceous adenomas
- And more…
Safety in Surgery
Prior to surgery, we make certain our patients are in their best possible physical condition before the procedure even begins. Every patient is given a thorough physical examination and pre-surgical blood work, to establish overall health and condition and to identify any abnormalities which might increase the risk of complications while the patient is under general anesthesia. Venous access and fluid therapy for each patient during surgery is the standard of care for seniors, traumatic injuries, or critically ill patients, and is highly recommended for all patients undergoing a surgical procedure.
At Kanyon’s Golden, our patients benefit from using the same surgical monitoring equipment as their owners.
Monitoring during surgery includes:
- Continuous electrocardiograph (EKG)
- Blood pressure monitor
- Respiratory monitor
- Pulse oximeter
This equipment monitors core body temperature, blood pressure, breathing, oxygen levels, heart rhythm and rate throughout the surgical process.
Our anesthesia is administered and monitored by trained, experienced professionals. Rest assured, your pet is never alone, from entering the surgical suite until alert and recovered from anesthesia.
Spay & Neuter
Every pet owner should be aware of the one surgical procedure that is highly beneficial to all companion animals. Besides contributing as an excellent solution to the overwhelming pet population issue, spaying and neutering are excellent health preventatives for all pets. Surgical spay and neuter are safe and beneficial procedures for your animal companions.
At Kanyon’s Golden Veterinary Care, we want to help our pet owners and you make informed decisions when it comes to spaying and neutering your pet. From determining the appropriate age to understanding the significant medical benefits to these procedures, our professional staff can provide answers to some of these tough questions.
Unaltered pets often experience a number of serious health problems that can be life-threatening and expensive to treat. These include prostatic, uterine, and chronic lower urinary tract infections as well as a number of reproductive cancers.
Did You Know:
- Spaying your female pet prior to her first heat cycle, reduces her risk of mammary, uterine, and ovarian cancer by up to 25% in some cases.
- An unaltered, adult female is at risk for developing a pyometra. A possibly fatal illness that often requires ICU care and emergency surgery.
- Adolescent males will be less likely to perform marking behavior if neutered early.
- Early neutering of male cats does positively affect their personality, while early neutering of male dogs has no effect on personality.
At Kanyon’s Golden, we believe that preventative care is job one! Contact us today about addressing your pet’s surgical needs.
