We routinely place I.V. Catheters in our patients prior to beginning a surgical procedure. Our nursing staff is specially trained to ensure your pets’ well-being before, during and after surgery.

We highly recommend a Pre-Anesthetic Profile to help us determine the safest anesthetic protocol for your pet. This includes an evaluation of liver and kidney function, clotting ability and an EKG to determine proper heart function.

The doctors and staff of Metairie Small Animal Hospital place great importance on Pain Management and routinely attend seminars and classes to stay informed. This training has better prepared us to handle the treatment of pain in all of our patients, particularly those undergoing surgery.
