Surgery

With our experienced and compassionate veterinarians as well as our associated veterinary specialists, Highway 24 Veterinary Clinic provides your pet with access to comprehensive surgical procedures from spaying and neutering to complicated orthopedic procedures. During any surgical procedure your pet’s safety and comfort is our number one priority. We are fortunate to have a modern surgical suite and state of the art anesthetic and monitoring equipment. This allows us to closely monitor your pets blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, pulse oxygen level, and heart electrocardiogram. Also, your pet will be kept warm with our ‘bear hugger’(a warm air circulating blanket) throughout any procedure. In addition, our highly skilled veterinary technicians provide your pet with one on one attention throughout the anesthetic and surgery so you can be assured that your pet remains comfortable and pain management is a priority.
