About Elmhurst Animal Care Center


In service to the pet owners of Elmhurst, Illinois, Elmhurst Animal Care Center functions as a veterinary clinic committed to the medical care of canines, felines, and other animals. Equipped with an on-site pharmacy, as well as dog- and cat-specific boarding facilities, Elmhurst Animal Care Center offers a wide range of services. The staff at Elmhurst Animal Care Center possesses the qualifications and training necessary to perform routine checkups, as well as more involved procedures, such as invasive surgery.

 

Sensitive to the concerns of pet owners, Elmhurst Animal Care Center takes the necessary precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of animals undergoing surgery. Before a procedure, the staff preps the animal for the administration of general anesthesia. This involves a complete physical evaluation. Elmhurst Animal Care Center veterinarians first listen to the breathing and heartbeat of the animal, searching for any irregular sounds or murmurs. If they detect anything out of the ordinary, they take X-rays and carefully palpate the abdomen for any pain or abnormalities. Elmhurst Animal Care Center veterinarians take blood samples and analyze the biochemical content of the blood, scrutinizing the electrolyte and liver enzyme content. Elmhurst Animal Care Center veterinarians also look for abnormalities in the red and white blood cell counts. The veterinarians take extensive steps to promote safety before the actual operation, demonstrating Elmhurst Animal Care Center’s commitment to quality animal care.

 

Before Elmhurst Animal Care Center veterinarians give anesthesia to an animal, they administer a pre-anesthetic agent to relax your pet and reduce its anxiety. Once the animal is ready, the vets position an intravenous catheter and induce anesthesia. With the animal unconscious, Elmhurst Animal Care Center veterinarians insert a breathing tube that dispenses inhalation anesthetic, ensuring unconsciousness. Anesthesia frees the animal from pain and discomfort. It also allows the Elmhurst Animal Care Center veterinarians to operate without distraction. Depending on the surgery, Elmhurst Animal Care Center veterinarians may employ a CO2 laser to decrease bleeding and post-operative discomfort. In addition to neutering and spaying, Elmhurst Animal Care Center handles more complicated surgeries, including wound repair, biopsy, bladder-stone removal, and foreign-body removal.
