Surgery and Anesthetic Monitoring

As a full service Hospital, we offer all aspects of surgery from ovariohysterectomy (spay) to castrations (neuter) to declawing to soft tissue surgery and orthopedic surgery. In addition, Dr. Woodson has a special interest in knee surgery to correct medial patella (knee cap) luxation and ruptured cruciate ligaments.

We also provide the latest and best comfort and care technology to maintain body warmth (via a bear hugger) and vital sign monitoring. Vital signs which are monitored are: temperature, EKG / heart rate, respiration rate and oxygen saturation, carbon dioxide rate. However, we still rely on the best monitoring with that being having the two sets of eyes on our patients by our Veterinary surgeon and the anesthetic nurse.
