We provide the highest quality of anesthesia and surgical services for our patients. It is important to create an individual anesthetic and surgical plan that meets the patients’ needs. All patients are different, and require different levels of monitoring, intervention and medication.
There is no such thing as risk-free anesthesia, however we make it our priority to keep that risk as low as possible. We develop an individual anesthetic plan for each of our patients. This will typically include a premedication to help relax your pet before the procedure, as well as a smooth induction into general anesthesia.
Our veterinary technicians and assistants monitor each patient very closely while they are under anesthesia. We monitor important vital signs including heart
rate, respiration rate, and body temperature.
In addition to the trained senses of technicians and doctor, some of the tools we may use to ensure your pet has a safe anesthetic procedure include an IV catheter, EKG monitoring to watch the heart rate and rhythm, SPO2 monitors to measure the amount of oxygen in the blood, blood pressure devices, thermometers, and Capnograms to measure carbon dioxide levels.
If you have any questions or concerns about your pet and anesthesia, be sure to speak with April, Rita or Dr. Gordzelik before the procedure.
We are proud to provide Pampa and surrounding communities with state-of-the-art veterinary surgical procedures. We also realize that it can be stressful to have your pet undergo surgery, and want to assure you that your pet is in good hands. We will do everything to provide the best care possible.

Every patient is assessed for pain management in our hospital. Your pet will have pain medication administered before the procedure, and depending on the procedure, may have pain medication to go home. Learn how to assess your pets pain levels at home (dogs and cats).
We will communicate with you about the things you need to know before, during, and after your pet’s surgery. It is our goal to make the entire process go smoothly, and to eliminate the stress and worry of surgical procedures.
