Dr. Patt brings a wealth of experience to the operating table, specializing in soft tissue surgery for a variety of patients, including dogs, cats, and exotic pets. Her approach to surgery is proactive, with a strong emphasis on preemptive pain management and a comprehensive focus on postoperative care to ensure optimal outcomes. Every procedure is accompanied by multimodal pain management strategies, tailored to each pet's specific needs. Furthermore, each patient benefits from the undivided attention of a dedicated nursing technician, alongside state-of-the-art monitoring equipment that tracks blood pressure, EKG, oxygen saturation, and CO2 levels.
Prior to surgery, we ensure a thorough pre-surgical blood workup for every pet to anticipate any potential complications. We also establish IV catheter access in all patients, serving as an emergency conduit and facilitating the administration of IV fluids to maintain stable blood pressure throughout the procedure. Our commitment to safety, comfort, and meticulous care is unwavering, as evidenced by the range of surgeries we perform regularly, from routine spays and neuters to exploratory surgeries, cystotomies, and the removal of masses or lumps, among others. At Little Critters Veterinary Hospital, every possible measure is taken to safeguard our patients' well-being.
