Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital is pleased to offer the latest in surgical equipment and techniques, and serves Grifton, North Carolina and the surrounding areas. Our clinic is outfitted with the latest in surgical equipment including a diagnostic laboratory, monitoring units, including blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen levels, as well as advanced surgical equipment.
Prior to all surgical procedures, Dr. Ivy Heath recommends running blood work to help insure your pet is healthy enough for surgery. Our advanced laboratory can determine the blood chemistry levels to determine the overall health of your furry family member’s liver and kidneys and pancreas. Complete blood counts are also recommended to determine red and white cell counts, and platelet levels. While any veterinary surgery carries a degree of risk, the laboratory at Faithful Friends helps to insure that anesthesia is as safe as possible in your pet.
The monitoring equipment at Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital is state-of-the-art. During your pet’s procedure, Dr. Heath and her experienced staff continually monitor oxygen levels, blood pressure and heart rate, making sure your pet is safe throughout the surgical event.
Pets hurt and feel pain in the same way people do. Pain preventative medication is required prior to any surgical event at Faithful Friends. Dr. Ivy Heath wants to keep all of their furry patients as comfortable as possible during any surgery.
When your pet is in need of surgery ranging from spay and neuters to intricate orthopedic procedures, you can count on the caring hands of Dr. Ivy Heath and her compassionate staff. Call one of our experienced team members at 252-524-3384 to schedule your furry family member’s surgery today.
