Equipped to handle both routine and complex surgical procedures, Foster Animal Hospital offers expertise in both soft tissue surgery as well as orthopedic animal surgery. Cutting-edge technologies, exceptional skill, dedication, and solid pre/post operative protocols ensure a positive experience for our patients.
In order to minimize any risks to your dog or cat, prior to surgery we perform blood work and pre-anesthesia laboratory tests. We use the safest anesthetics and the newest monitoring equipment. Specializing in pain control measures, we provide pain relief before, during, and after surgery. Less pain positions your pet for easier recovery and the best possible outcome. Each patient is assigned a recovery nurse, who cares for the patient throughout the procedure.
Every effort is made to send your pet home with you the same day, but in cases where additional monitoring is needed, arrangements will be made to transfer your pet to a facility where technicians provide medical supervision.
