Pre-Operative CBC

This basic bloodwork helps to indicate if pet has any underlying factors present that might cause complications during or post-surgery. It helps to identify if pet has current infections, low platelets or hematocrit levels, both which are essential for clotting & healing properly.

Spay procedure

Small abdominal incision for removal of ovaries, we use absorbable sutures so no need for removal 2 weeks later.
