At Columbine Animal Hospital, we offer a wide variety of surgical services. We know the thought of surgery can be scary, but we take every surgical procedure seriously and have strict protocols to ensure a safe surgical procedure for your pet. This includes:

  • Pre-surgical blood work to ensure they can properly metabolize anesthesia and are a healthy candidate for the procedure
  • An exam on all new patients and an up-to-date exam on all current patients
  • IV catheter placement in the event of an emergency as well as to provide fluids during the surgical procedure to keep them hydrated and maintain good blood pressure
  • Close monitoring during the entire procedure with a technician and advanced equipment
  • Heat source during anesthesia to keep them warm
  • Post-surgical pain management
