Surgery and Anesthesia

After a careful examination, our patients have an intravenous catheter placed. This allows us to administer IV anesthetics . All of our anesthetized patients receive warm intravenous fluids. Providing IV access and fluids helps us maintain hydration, blood pressure and administer medications. Anesthetized patients are constantly assessed by our exceptionally well trained staff. Technology is an integral part of safe anesthesia. Our advanced monitoring system aids the technician in evaluations. Our monitor will report EKG, non-invasive blood pressure, respiratory rate, pO2 (oxygenation), carbon dioxide levels as well as core body temperature.

All of these parameters are factored in the safest anesthesia for your pet. This information also gets electronically stored in their record. Our attentiveness to surgical sterility extends from our prep area to the patient and even the air in surgery. The surgery suite is equipped with HEPA filtration to help decrease the impurities in the surgery room air. This in turn, helps to decrease the chance of post-surgical infection in our patients.

Digital Radiography

Our Digital Radiograph machine uses the most advanced method for providing us an X-Ray image. Digital radiographs are created by replacing the old x-ray film and chemicals with new reusable radiation sensitive plates and a computer . The images are available within 90 seconds.

Through use of the computer, we can adjust the radiograph, therefore helping to avoid the need to retake an x-ray. This decreases radiation exposure to your pet and our staff. The designated radiograph monitor for this system provides exceptional resolution. We are able to see very fine detail and subtle changes. Digital radiograph technology permits us to rapidly view a very high resolution image of our patient and thereby help with a quick and accurate diagnosis.

Old York Veterinary Hospital uses an electronic record keeping system to stores the digital radiographs of your pet in their record. These images can be easily retrieved and reviewed. The electronic records also give us the advantage of transferring this information instantly to a specialist for a second opinion on your behalf. Supplying the specialist with the best information about your pet helps them make decisions and decreases the need for retesting at the specialty facility.
