Surgical Monitoring

When your pet is being treated surgically at Heartwood Animal Hospital, we want you to know they are safe. Many animal hospitals do not offer this level of care—this is why pet surgery at an AAHA accredited animal hospital is a better choice. In keeping with our AAHA accreditation, we are committed to utilizing the very safest anesthesia protocols and surgical monitoring tools in every procedure. This level of care includes:

Blood Work

Pre-anesthetic blood work to ensure that your pet is healthy enough to be anesthetized.


Personalized administration of anesthesia based on your pet’s individual needs.


Complete human-grade surgical monitoring throughout the procedure, tracking your pet’s vital signs at all times.

Veterinary Assistant

A Veterinary Assistant assigned to personally monitor your pet throughout surgery, adding a personal touch to all monitoring.
