Internal Medicine
West Madison Veterinary Hospital offers a wide range of technologically advanced diagnostic and therapeutic services in oncology, gastroenterology, urology, pulmonary disease, hematology, endocrinology and infectious diseases. For cases requiring the consultation of a specialist, we refer to Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners, Auburn University and the University of Tennessee.


Surgery
The doctor’s at West Madison Veterinary Hospital are trained to perform many types of surgeries including  spay, neuter, declaw, abdominal exploratory, gastrointestinal surgery, cystotomy, lump/mass removals, anal gland removal and some orthopedics. Our doctors and staff take all safety precautions for the health and safety of your pet. Our veterinarians conduct a pre-surgical exam on every patient. All patients are carefully screened for safety prior to surgery, pre-anesthetic blood-work is performed on all surgical patients to assess vital organ function and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet’s needs.

A member of our surgical team monitors their vital signs continuously during each procedure with multi-parameter anesthesia monitoring equipment. Your pet’s comfort, safety, and wellbeing is very important to us and our staff will take every step to give your pet the best possible care.


Anesthesia
Modern anesthesia is very safe. The staff at West Madison Veterinary Hospital makes every effort to provide safe anesthesia by performing pre-operative physical exams, pre-anesthetic blood testing, and using multi-parameter anesthetic monitoring equipment. Sedation and anesthetics are carefully chosen for safety and effectiveness.

Pre-anesthetic blood testing is important in reducing the risk of anesthesia. Every pet needs blood testing before surgery to ensure that the liver and kidneys can handle the anesthetic. Even apparently healthy animals can have serious organ system problems that cannot be detected without blood testing. Testing allows us to tailor the anesthetic protocol and if necessary postpone surgery for the safety of your pet. 

One of our trained technicians monitors your pet during and after the procedure. We use multi-parameter anesthetic monitoring equipment that monitors EKG, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, carbon dioxide levels and temperature. This monitoring allows us to adjust the anesthesia as necessary and can provide valuable information for the safety of your pet.


Pain Management
Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals in the essence of good patient care. For every surgical patient, a pain management plan is tailored to meet your pet’s specific needs before, during, and after surgery.
