What to Expect with Veterinary Surgery in Upland
At Inland Valley Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Center, our surgical center is equipped with cutting-edge surgical instrumentation and equipment. Everything we do, every decision we make, is focused on post-operative success for your pet.
- Anesthesia & Pain Management
Each patient has an anesthetic plan that is tailored to his or her specific condition. Overall cardiovascular health and lab work are taken into consideration with each pet.
We take extra care to ensure your pet is pain-free during and after surgery often by using a multimodal approach (i.e. local anesthetic, epidural anesthesia and systemic medications).
- Continuous Patient Monitoring
We use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment (EKG, oscillometric blood pressure, arterial line, pulse oximetry, end-tidal CO2, etc.) to monitor your pet’s vitals during surgery.
- Sterilization Techniques
All of our procedures utilize a strict sterile technique. This means our operative suite has positive pressure airflow and the room is cleaned after every procedure.
Our surgeons also use sterile prep and full surgical attire (sterile gloves, surgical cap, surgical gown).
- Post-Operative Care
Once the surgery is complete, your veterinarian will contact you to discuss the procedure and plan.
Some pets are able to return home the next day, while others are required to stay longer. It ultimately depends on the complexity of the procedure and your pet’s health status.
When you arrive to pick up your pet, we will provide you with discharge instructions and answer any questions you have.
