Why we are the best choice for your pet's surgical needs

At Animal Hospital of Streamwood, your pet's safety and comfort are our top priority. Be assured that your pet will receive only the best and safest anesthetic and surgical care.

Anesthesia

We include the following in each of our anesthetic procedures:

  • Thorough exam by a doctor the morning of the procedure to pick up on even the smallest changes before administering anesthesia
  • Individualized anesthetic and pain management plans tailored to your pet and its procedure
  • State-of-the-art Sevoflurane gas anesthesia (it's what is used for people, too!)
  • Close monitoring of heart rate, respiratory rate, anesthetic depth, hydration, temperature, and blood pressure by a veterinary technician, not a machine, throughout the duration of the anesthesia and recovery
  • IV catheter with fluid therapy to help maintain blood pressure and tissue perfusion. It also helps your pet to have a smoother, easier recovery
  • Circulating warm water pad to maintain a healthy body temperature
  • Continual post-operative monitoring by a veterinary technician to keep your pet clean and comfortable

Veterinary Surgical Services

We perform surgeries 4 days a week in our well-equipped and sterile surgical suite. Our surgical capabilities range from routine spay and neuter procedures, to mass removals and orthopedic surgeries. We use dissolvable sutures under the skin whenever we can, so your pet isn't tempted to lick, scratch and itch at stitches on the skin. Most of our surgeries are done on an out-patient basis, so that your pet is back in the comfort of home the same evening.
