We perform elective and emergency surgeries including major and minor soft tissue surgery.

All animals undergoing a surgical procedure receive IV fluids, which are monitored by a Registered Veterinary Technician or Assistant. We have fluid administration pumps that regulate the flow of I.V. fluids for any animal requiring them.

Though they don't always show it, animals feel pain – don't let anyone tell you differently! Pain control is always a top priority at Island Veterinary Services. Most surgical cases have pain medication administered with their anesthesia injection. Many pets receive injections of potent narcotics during and after surgery. For painful procedures we use a continuous rate infusion of drugs before, during and after surgery.

For most surgical and many medical cases we provide pain medication for you to take home. We encourage you to use the entire pain control prescription.
