Your Pet's Surgery

The doctors and staff at Bear Creek Veterinary Care receive consistent training in order to provide our patients with the highest standard of surgical care. Prior to a surgical procedure being performed, all patients undergo a thorough physical examination and must complete appropriate laboratory analysis so that we can design an anesthesia protocol specifically for your pet. During every surgical procedure, your pet has a dedicated anesthetic technician who closely and continuously monitors all of your pet's vital signs with advanced anesthetic monitoring equipment.  Each pet receives an intravenous catheter to provide IV fluid therapy before, and during the duration of the procedure.  We believe strongly in individualized pain management for your pet.  Each and every surgical procedure includes individualized pain management protocols for the pre- and post-operative as well as intra-operative period.  Your pet’s safety and comfort during surgery are our primary concerns and we strive to make each surgical procedure as stress-free and safe as possible.
