SURGERY

 

Our veterinary surgeon has over 30 years of experience. She performs routine spays and neuters and removal of skin masses ("lumpectomies") as do many general practitioners. In addition,  she does much more complex surgical procedures, including perineal urethrostomies, gastrointestinal resection-anastomosis, splenectomies, reconstructive (i.e. "plastic") surgery, liver lobe resections etc.

Surgery is performed in a separate surgical suite within the Mobile Unit. As in most high quality practices, Ark Angel's patients undergoing surgery are placed on IV fluids and are monitored continuously with ECG, end tidal CO2, blood pressure and pulse oximetry monitoring equipment.
