Experienced Rocklin Veterinary Surgery Services
Veterinary surgery is a complex field, one that requires training, commitment, and skill. The veterinarians of Rocklin Road Animal Hospital have years of experience in a range of surgical procedures from routine spay and neuter surgery, to the complexity of stomach, intestinal, bladder, reconstructive, and orthopedic surgery. And for those surgeries that require the talents of a specialist, we have board-certified surgeons available. These surgeons come to our hospital so that your “family doctor” will be in charge of the anesthesia, surgery prep, and recovery of your pet. Continuity of care is important to us at Rocklin Road Animal Hospital, and we want your regular Rocklin Road veterinarian to be involved, even in these specialty surgeries.
Our fully equipped surgical suite provides an environment for the latest surgical techniques and patient monitoring. We use only the safest anesthesia for reliability, control, and ease of recovery. During all surgeries, we carefully monitor your pet’s vital signs (heart rate, respiratory rate, ECG, temperature, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level) and keep close watch until your pet is alert and fully responsive. One of our veterinary nurses is assigned to your pet to monitor him or her from the time they are anesthetized until they are fully recovered from anesthesia.
