When surgery is necessary, we at AHF offer only the safest anaesthesia.  

The pulse rate and oxygenation levels of the tissues are monitored by a
technician and we have the ability to measure blood pressure if need
arises.  We also provide a water blanket circulating warm water around the
patient during surgery to prevent hypothermia.

After surgery, your pet will receive an antibiotic injection to prevent
infection and pain control medicines.  We may even place a bandage over
the incision if it is needed.  A warm, soft bed is provided to help comfort
the patient while waking from anaesthesia.  Our recovery area is always
visible by the staff so your pet is never alone.
