Dr. Jayne Aldrich, DVM, is currently the licensed veterinarian that performs the surgery for us with the help of three certified Veterinary Assistants. Although our prices are much more affordable than most veterinary clinics, we do want you to know that we follow a very disciplined action for surgery. We use the very best in anesthesia and suture material, and our products are the same that you would find in any veterinary facility! Our facility is clean and we follow the same protocol of sterilization as other veterinary clinics. Your animal will be kept safely in its own kennel, until it is time for its surgery. We have a heated surgical table, so your animal will be kept warm and comfortable during its surgery, and post-surgically it will be given a warm blanket to recover on in a climate controlled area. Our staff is trained in how to properly handle animals of all sizes and temperament so don't worry if you feel your fuzzy friend is hard to handle! We will make sure that they are safe and comfortable and that you feel secure with them in our hands!
Sometimes, post-surgical problems will occur. Whether it be that your animal is having a reaction to the suture material, or your animal was so active after surgery that it actually ruptured a stitch or two; in any case we want you to know that we are there for any questions or concerns following your animal's surgery. Although we are only at the clinic Monday- Wednesday, we are just a phone call away! If there were a problem with your animal on a Thursday or Friday, you would only need to call the clinic number (719-564-3776) and a member of our staff will help you through it! We will even take the time to meet you at the clinic to assess the problem and call the Doctor if we feel that it is serious. If there is a problem on a Saturday or Sunday, we have provided, with the post-operative instruction sheet, a phone number to Mesa Veterinary Clinic. They have been kind enough to allow us to use their number for any questions you may have. We do have to include here that Mesa Veterinary Clinic will need authorization from us before they perform any procedure on your animal; we will not pay for any services from any veterinary clinic without authorization!
As well as offering these low-cost services to the public, we operate an all-save animal rescue on-site where we house cats and dogs available for adoption. Our rescue team works hard to provide the best care for the animals we house to ensure that they are happy and healthy as they wait patiently for their forever homes!
