Enhancing Surgery Safety for Your Pet

Here at our Bradenton, FL hospital, we adhere to strict protocols to maximize safety during all pet surgeries:

Pre-Anesthetic Exam

This preliminary exam assesses your pet’s overall health and identifies any potential issues.


We conduct pre-anesthetic blood tests to screen for illnesses and evaluate liver and kidney functions.

Chest X-Rays

Recommended for pets aged 7 and older to check heart and lung health, which is crucial as pets are more susceptible to heart and respiratory issues as they age.

IV Catheter Placement

This allows for safer and easier administration of fluids and medications during surgery.

Why are Spay and Neuter Surgeries Important?

Dog With Owners

Spaying and neutering are vital for the well-being of pets and the community for several key reasons:

Reduces Stray Population

Spay and neuter procedures help control the number of stray animals in our community, alleviating the burden on local shelters and rescues and reducing euthanasia rates.

Increases Public Health and Safety

Keeping stray animal populations low can help increase the overall health and safety of our community. This includes reducing the spread of zoonotic diseases such as rabies and Lyme disease.

Improves Animal Health and Lifespan

Spaying and neutering can lower the risk of certain cancers and other health issues in dogs and cats, potentially extending your pet’s life.
