Three surgery suites gives us the versatility to perform many different types of surgeries in our hospital. We take every precaution to make sure all surgeries are as safe as possible. Prior to anesthesia, our surgery patients have a blood panel run to check for any underlying diseases that could complicate anesthesia.
During surgery our patients are maintained on intravenous fluids to support their blood pressure and allow quick access to veins in case of emergency. Sophisticated monitoring equipment is continually used to check vital signs (heart rate and rhythm, breathing rate, blood pressure, and oxygenation), and a technician is monitoring these machines and observing the patient to ensure safety.
Our staff of veterinarians performs the majority of the surgeries, from routine spays and neuters to emergency surgery and much in between. We also have a board-certified surgeon on staff to handle complicated orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries, and to consult with our doctors as needed.
Recovery and post-operative patient comfort is of paramount importance to our staff at the Animal Hospital of Nashua. Trained veterinary nursing staff members are on duty to carefully monitor your pet’s recovery and maintain pain management protocols. Providing appropriate analgesia and anti-inflammatory relief has been shown to reduce the amount of time a patient requires to recover and heal.
