At North Star Veterinary Hospital, we take your pets’ anesthesia very seriously. Our anesthesia team is well trained and works diligently to provide the safest anesthetic plan for each individual pet. For each patient undergoing anesthesia, we will perform a pre-operative exam, IV catheter placement and fluid therapy, modern anesthetic agents, full anesthetic monitoring, and recovery care.
We will utilize a multi-modal pain control approach for each animal we treat as we believe that keeping your pet comfortable and pain-free before, during and after surgery is an essential part of your pets care and healing process. Post surgical laser therapy is also included for most routine surgeries which will serve to decrease inflammation and decrease healing time.
Our surgery suite is equipped with advanced anesthesia and patient monitoring technologies to include ECG monitoring, SPO2 monitoring, CO2 monitoring, Blood Pressure monitoring, Surgical Cautery, and Laser therapy. Our team takes pride in our high standard of knowledge and care with regards to anesthetic and surgical practices and procedures. We will take every precaution to ensure that your pet’s anesthesia and surgery is as safe as possible.
Spaying or neutering your pet is an important decision for pet owners. Removal of the male or female reproductive organs prevents unwanted pregnancies and reproductive cancers from threatening your pet’s life. We offer spay and neuter surgery as part of your pet’s preventative wellness care.

While we understand that feline declawing is an elective and controversial procedure, we do also understand that there are situations in which this surgery may become necessary. Our clinic will perform this surgery on a case by case basis.
