We know anesthesia can be a scary word and we all feel uneasy when our loved ones are having this type of procedure. We get it! At Rox Falls Vet we have done everything we can to lower that risk under anesthesia. We have new, advanced anesthesia machines and monitoring equipment. We provide a dedicated veterinary nurse for monitoring anesthesia who has their eyes, ears, and hands on your pet at all times. Your veterinarian and your dedicated veterinary nurse work together as your pet’s anesthesia team. In the recovery area, your pet continues to be closely monitored, and at this time you will often get a text message or picture of your pet resting and as cute as can be! You can rest assured that your pet is getting the best care possible when he or she needs it.

Spay and Neuter

We recommend spaying and neutering your pets for a number of reasons. Some of these reasons include an effort to minimize mammary tumors, prevent the need for emergency pyometra surgery, decrease chances for prostatic and testicular diseases and cancers, as well as to improve certain behavioral conditions.
