Dr. Shaffer, as a surgeon, has expertise in many advanced orthopedic and soft tissue procedures as well as routine surgical procedures such as spays, neuters, and declaws. We offer the most advanced surgical techniques and technology. All patients are carefully screened for safety, and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet.

It is highly recommended that each surgery patient have pre-surgical lab tests done as an aid to reduce surgical and anesthetic risk.  Some procedures may require these preliminary tests as well as radiographs before surgery can be performed. 

Our experienced veterinary and technical staff is there to assist in surgery and the patient's vital parameters are intensely monitored during anesthesia and post-surgical recovery.

To ensure the safest, most efficient, state-of-the-art procedures for your pet, Shaffer Veterinary Hospital utilizes:

  • heated surgery tables for greater comfort and reduction of body heat loss
  • advanced sterilization techniques
  • gas anesthesia with a gas scavenging system for expelled gas
  • the latest surgical monitors
The parameters monitored during and sometime after surgery include:
  • ECG
  • blood pressure
  • respiration
  • temperature and oxygen
  • carbon dioxide saturation
