Our state-of-the-art surgical suite allows the veterinarians the ability to provide surgical procedures in a safe and efficient environment. The utmost care is given to your pet's comfort and safety before, during and after surgery. In the event your pet may require surgery, we offer pre-anesthetic blood testing, IV fluid therapy, and ECG's for at risk patients.
We understand that surgery, no matter how routine, can be a difficult and stressful time for both you and your companion. That's why we strive to make each and every surgical procedure as stress-free as possible. Our highly skilled, compassionate staff applies the most up-to-date veterinary surgical techniques with your pet's safety and comfort in mind at all times. We want you to know that when you bring your pet to us for surgery, they will be in capable, caring hands.
Patients undergoing surgery are carefully monitored by our Registered Veterinary Technicians before, during and following the procedure to ensure their safety and comfort at all times. Following surgery, we will work with you to discuss and implement an appropriate pain management plan to help your pet recover as comfortably and pain-free as possible
Continued Education in Anesthesia & Pain Control for our Veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVT's)
Each year our Veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVT's) have a special visit from Dr.Nancy Brock to update their education on the latest anesthetic, pain control, and monitoring techniques in veterinary medicine.
Originally from Montreal, Dr. Nancy Brock obtained her DVM degree from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 1982. She completed a residency in anesthesia and critical care at the University of California, Davis in 1988. In 1995, she completed the specialty certification process and was awarded the status of Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia.
The cornerstone of Dr Brock's practice is anesthesia safety. Based out of Vancouver BC, she helps Canadian veterinarians and their nursing staff deliver safe, effective anesthesia and pain control for their surgical patients. This assistance comes through telemedicine consultations, in-clinic delivery of anesthesia to high risk or compromised patients, as well as training in advanced anesthesia techniques. When she is not engaged in anesthesia, Dr Brock enjoys downhill skiing, cycling, tending to her vegetable garden and playing in the kitchen.
