Pet Routine & Soft Tissue Surgeries in Cottonwood Heights, UT

Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures is extremely important to us at Union Park Veterinary Hospital.

Surgery Preparation

At Union Park Veterinary Hospital, we never compromise patient care, especially when surgery is being performed. All patients will receive preoperative bloodwork to ensure that each surgical candidate’s liver and kidneys can tolerate their individualized anesthetic protocol. Additionally, all surgery patients will receive fluids in order to maintain proper perfusion to kidneys and brain and to maintain adequate blood pressure.

All animals receiving any form of sedation/anesthesia will be monitored with our multi-parameter monitoring equipment. Heart rate and rhythm (including EKG), oxygen saturation, blood pressure, and temperature will all be monitored closely, the same as if you were having anesthesia performed on yourself.

Individualized Anesthetic Protocols
We monitor our patients closely to keep them as safe as possible during procedures that require general anesthesia. A veterinary technician will continually assess your pet’s heart and respiratory rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs to help prevent any anesthetic risk.
Extensive Pain Management and Control
Our approach to pain management involves anticipating potentially painful procedures and taking steps to manage pain from the outset, as well as continuing to manage pain through your pet’s treatment and recovery process.
State-of-the-Art Monitoring Equipment

We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
