Surgery is often the most effective way to treat many serious injuries and disorders, and Chateau Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer state-of-the-art facilities and equipment as well as skilled and experienced doctors and technicians. We offer a variety of soft-tissue surgeries from routine spay/neuters to more advanced operations, and every precaution is taken for your pet’s safety, health and comfort.
Surgery and other procedures such as dental cleanings require anesthesia, and we understand that cats have special needs in this area. There are always risks associated with anesthesia and we do everything possible to minimize these risks in your cat’s best interest.
As a certified Fear Free and Cat-Friendly practice, you can be comfortable placing your cat in our care because we excel at identifying the needs of felines and addressing them specifically where anesthesia is concerned. We do not approach anesthesia with a ”one size fits all” mentality. We take into consideration our patients’ age, breed, size (or lack thereof), and procedure.
Some cats only require sedation while others may undergo general anesthesia. For either level of anesthesia, patients will be examined, have pre-operative bloodwork performed and an intravenous catheter in place.
Our complete anesthesia protocol utilizes veterinary specific monitoring equipment and recovery care that includes warming blankets and post-operative monitoring by qualified trained personnel.
It is our team’s goal to send your cat home with all your concerns addressed and with the information you need to properly care for him or her. We understand surgery is a stressful time for any owner, and we’re available every step of the way to answer questions and put your mind at ease.
