Our Pet Surgery Safety Protocols

Your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priorities at The COVE. To ensure the highest standards of care and safety are being met before, during, and after your pet’s surgery, we take the following precautions:

  • The proper administration of anesthesia according to your pet’s needs (we offer various options, including local, nerve, and epidurals)
  • Continuous, careful anesthesia and vitals monitoring
  • Individualized pain management protocols post-op

Our goal is to make every surgery as safe and low-stress as possible for our cat and dog patients. We will be sure to stay in contact with you to keep you informed of your pet’s progress under our care, and will also happily answer any questions you have about their procedure and/or recovery process.
