Certified Veterinary Technicians provide thorough monitoring of your pet's vital signs during an anesthetic event. With the aid of an electronic monitoring system, we carefully track your pet's heart rate, ECG, respiration rate, blood pressure, oxygenation, end tidal C02, and body temperature.
For more complicated surgical cases, Dr. Calvin Kobluk is available for surgery at our hospital. He is a board certified surgeon and a member of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons. Dr. Kobluk has extensive experience in orthopedics and is certified to perform the Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO), a procedure necessary for repairing the common cruciate injury in the dog knee.
Laser surgery can perform a wide variety of surgical procedures. As the laser cuts it seals off blood vessels, which greatly reduces bleeding during surgery. It also seals off nerve endings so your pet will be more comfortable after the procedure. The laser also kills bacteria in its path which reduces the risk of postoperative infections.
We commonly use the laser for procedures such as:
* Oral surgeries
* Tumor removals
* Eyelid surgeries
Our surgical facilities at our hospital allow us to perform both soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.
Both Dr. Boysen and Dr. Pietig are experienced in small animal surgery, from spays/neuters, declaws, and tumor removals, to cystotomies, abdominal expoloratories, and cesarean sections.
Dr. Boysen has 80 hours of advanced continuing education from Ohio State University in the field of orthopedic surgery. We have a large inventory of orthopedic equipment to meet the needs of an extensive size range of pets.
