There are a wide variety of surgeries we perform here at Taylor Vet; including but not limited to, spay, neuter, cystotomy, foreign body removal, umbilical hernia repair, mass removals, amputations, and orthopedic procedures. We have a veterinary surgeon from Des Moines that travels to the clinic for more detailed orthopedic procedures. These surgeries are performed in hospital with modern anesthetic protocols. There is a 1-2% risk with any anesthetic procedure, but we do many things to try to lessen this risk. These include: pre-surgical blood screening, inhalation anesthesia with tracheal intubation, anesthetic monitoring (of heart rate, blood pressure, oxygenation, temperature, respiration) not only with electronic equipment but also with a technician. Each patient has a technician assigned to them through the entire procedure.
