Your Pet's Surgery

Safe & Effective Veterinary Surgical Services

York Animal Hospital Surgery PhotoAt York Animal Hospital we strive to ensure your pet's surgical procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible. To that end, we endeavor to provide our clients with a clear understanding of why a particular procedure is necessary, what the procedure entails, proper post-operative care, and convey any other information you may need to feel comfortable that you are making the right choice for your pet.

Staffed by a team of highly trained and experienced veterinarians and veterinary technicians, we are proud of the quality of surgical care we provide and the wide range of surgical procedures we offer.

We believe that identifying and relieving pain is important to the recovery of your pet. Therefore, pain management is an important aspect of our intra- and post-surgical protocols. At discharge, we may also send additional pain management medication home with you and your pet after providing a thorough explanation of its proper use and dosage.

Anesthesia & Monitoring

Anesthesia and cardiovascular monitoring are important, integral aspects of every surgery we perform. Your pet will be closely monitored while under anesthesia by one of our highly trained veterinary technicians. For this reason, your pet has access to the best and most advanced anesthetic administration and cardiovascular monitoring equipment and protocols available.

Anesthesia is individualized for your pet based on a number of factors, which includes the type of procedure, his or her preexisting conditions, blood test values, age, breed, and prior anesthetic experience.

During anesthesia and surgery, your pet is constantly monitored by a trained veterinary technician, using our advanced monitoring system. This system continuously monitors your pet's arterial oxygen level, blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, and core body temperature.
