The anesthesia specialist at the Crossroads Animal Clinic has many decades of experience in handling the administering procedures for the pets. This is because the surgical procedures for small, medium and large size animals vary in nature. There are certain important aspects which have to be considered during the surgery.

  • Tissue Injury: – As you can see, the surgical procedures do cause certain amount of injuries to the tissues. In some instances this may result in inflammation and pain. Proper usage of anesthesia can help in lessening the effects of injury and heal them faster. The most effective applications of anesthesia can be seen in case of sharp dissections. The experts at the Crossroads Animal Clinic try and use the surgical scalpel blade for making the dissections instead of the traditional usage of scissors. This procedure can help in decreasing the volume and intensity of injury during the dissection process. The application of anesthesia can help in the retraction of muscles and tissues back into the original order after the surgical procedures are complete.
  • Optimum Hemostasis: – Hemostasis is a process in which the blood loss during the surgical procedures is minimized. This fact has been observed over many years and cases of pet surgery. The bigger ones tend to lose more volume of blood compared to the small pets. By using the local anesthesia effectively during local surgical procedures, the loss of blood can be prevented by more than 98%. This is one of the techniques used by the pet surgeons at the Crossroads Animal Clinic. Moreover they are also well versed in the application of knockout anesthesia while performing the internal organ surgery. The other methods used by the expert surgeons at the Crossroads Animal Clinic are the ligation techniques. The process is aimed at causing the temporary blocks within the tissue cells, resulting in the stoppage of blood flow to those organs. In such cases also the loss of blood can be avoided.
