Many pets are given up to shelters due to behavior problems. Some of the most common behavior problems are aggressive behavior, separate anxiety, inappropriate urination, These behaviors create difficult decisions for pet owners. We would like to help your family decide if your pets behavior can be modified.

All patients undergoing anesthesia are monitored by a highly trained veterinary technician with our state of the art monitoring equipment. We monitor heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, blood pressure, pulse oximetry (oxygen saturation) and electrocardiogram on all of our anesthetized patients. They will monitor heart rate, body temperature, respiratory rate, circulatory perfusion, and blood pressure. These vitals are taken routinely before, during and after the surgical procedure.
At SVC we take anesthesia very seriously. We perform preanesthetic bloodwork on all patients undergoing general anesthesia to ensure they do not have organ compromise, or need a change of anesthetic regimen. Each individual patient will receive their own anesthesia plan catered to their specific needs. All patients undergoing general anesthesia will have an IV catheter and IV fluids administered based on their specific requirements. This aids in maintaining blood pressure and blood flow to the brain, kidneys and other vital tissues.

Microchips have been used to help identify your pet if they should run away. A microchip scanner is used at the local shelters/veterinary facilities to identify your pet. This will often be offered around the time of Spay/Neuter, but can be opted for at any time. It is very simple, and very comforting for an owner to have this identification for your pet. Be sure to register your pet's Identification with the provided information for the microchip to work effectively.
