All Creatures Pet Hospital offers a state-of-the-art surgical suite equipped with innovative tools to care for your pet in the Gardendale, Fultondale, and Birmingham areas of Alabama. Before any surgery, Dr. Hankes always recommends running blood work on every pet undergoing surgery. Blood work can determine if the liver and kidneys of your pet are functioning properly so anesthesia can be administered to your pet as safely as possible. During the pre-operative procedure, it is required that pain medication is given to keep your pet as comfortable as possible during surgery. Before and after the procedure, your pet's vital signs including heart rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels are continuously monitored by our veterinarian. At the conclusion of the treatment, your pet will be kept warm and will continue to be monitored as they recover from the anesthesia.
Dr. Hankes has many years of successful surgical experience, and he will bring this same high level of care to your pet companion. Your pet will be in compassionate and skilled hands, where we will treat your pet just as we would our own. Call All Creatures Pet Hospital at 205-631-6210 for your pet's surgical needs.
