From routine spaying and neutering, to orthopedic services and soft tissue procedures, as well as lump and foreign body removal, exploratory surgery, and others as needed.
Did you know spaying or neutering your pet helps prevent disease, improve behavior, and reduce the number of unwanted animals in shelters?
Intensive care, pre- and post-surgical, surgical rehab, hospital care, and emergency services are available. Talk to the staff for details and your pet’s needs.
Anesthesia & Monitoring
GVAH uses a multimodal (multi-agent) approach to all cases that require sedation or anesthesia.
Types of anesthetic drugs have evolved greatly, and by using the multimodal approach we are able to formulate the combination that best suits the procedure and the individual pet. This not only lessens the amount of time your pet is under anesthesia, but also allows us to manage their pain and to wake them up in a more controlled manner. A trained technician will be monitoring your pet during the procedure and throughout the recovery process.
