At Barriefield Animal Hospital, our elective surgery fees are all-inclusive. For these types of surgeries (spay, neuter, routine dental cleaning), there are no separate fees for intravenous fluid therapy, anesthetic monitoring, or pain medication.
Our patients are continually monitored and supervised during the surgery by one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVTs), who also carefully monitors each patient throughout the recovery period.
All surgical patients receive pain medication before, during, and after each procedure. Intravenous catheter placement and continuous intravenous fluid therapy are included with those surgeries requiring gas anesthesia. Having intravenous fluids on-board helps to maintain blood pressure which helps protect the kidneys, improves clearance of anesthetic drugs, and facilitates recovery afterwards.
We recommend bloodwork is run beforehand for surgical patients. Pre-anesthetic bloodwork evaluates vital organ function (liver, kidneys, blood glucose, electrolytes, complete blood count) before being anesthetized.

Dental disease is a very common and significant problem in our companion animal population. Poor dental health can be extremely painful for your pet, and is often preventable. We strongly believe that maintaining dental health is a very important part of keeping your pet healthy. We recommend regular dental cleaning and assessment for all our patients. A complete oral health exam and treatment (COHAT) is performed while the patient is anesthetized, and includes dental probing/charting/cleaning/polishing.
Note: All of our routine dental cleaning and assessment fees include pre-anesthetic bloodwork, intravenous fluids, and pain medication (if required)

Microchips are designed to last the life of your pet, and are linked to a national database to retrieve contact information to help reunite you with your pet.

Regular dental care is a must for your pet!
Dental disease may not only affect the mouth - bacterial and oral inflammation can affect the kidneys, heart, and liver. February and March are always "Dental Months" - during which a 10% discount is offered on dental services.
