I’m worried about my pet’s upcoming surgical procedure. What do you do to help ensure your patients’ safety during surgery?

Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and preanesthetic testing before surgery and monitor your pet during surgery. During the procedure, a veterinary technician will continually assess your pet’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, temperature and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk.

Blue Ridge Veterinary Services is proud to offer Sevoflurane anesthetic gas as well at both our Galax, VA and Mount Airy, NC locations as well. This is the same gas anethetic agent that is used on many human pediatric surgeries. It is slightly more expensive than our regular gas anesthetic, Isoflurane, but gives us another option to make surgery as safe as possible.

We also provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.

Emergencies

We have a veterinarian on call for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call the clinic and if your call is not answered directly you will receive a message instructing you how to reach the on-call doctor.
