There has been coverage in the news media regarding a "mystery" respiratory illness affecting dogs out west, and serious concerns about the health of dogs in our area. We feel a need to address these concerns for our dog community as a whole and for individual pets and their owners.
The veterinarians and the entire staff at Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital understand that the decision to allow your beloved companion to undergo surgery is never an easy one. We strive to ensure your pet's procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
Perhaps the most important pre-surgical step is to discuss why we believe a particular procedure is necessary and what it entails. Our veterinarians will provide you with information on proper postoperative care and answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable knowing you are making the right choice for your pet. We regularly perform many types of surgeries, including but not limited to:
Ensuring the health and safety of your pet during surgery is our utmost concern and requires an anesthetic and monitoring regimen that adheres to the highest principles and ideals of quality care.
At Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital, we provide your pet with state-of-the-art anesthetic administration and cardiovascular technology that is monitored by our skilled veterinary technicians. Prior to surgery, your pet is examined and a pre-surgical blood screen is performed. The results of these tests and past anesthetic history, breed, preexisting conditions, and age are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol for your pet.
While under anesthesia, your pet is cared for and constantly monitored by an experienced veterinary technician. Additionally, our systems track blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and anesthesia and oxygen levels. Once your pet is out of surgery, our staff continue close monitoring until your pet is fully recovered.
We all know that pain hurts, but pain also has many other detrimental effects on your pet's body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity, and causes behavioral changes such as aggression, anxiety, and depression. Pain worsens diseases like arthritis and potentially some cancers. It interferes with the bond between you and your pet.
At Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital, we practice the most up-to-date pain management protocol. For acute and chronic conditions, we use all our available and safe resources, including NSAIDS (non-steroidal medications) and oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet.
Financial and Scheduling Policy
Please give at least 24 hours notice in the event you must reschedule or cancel a procedure/surgical appointment. This will help us utilize our surgical team appropriately and potentially offer the time to a patient on our waiting list. Greenpoint Veterinary requires a deposit of $200 at the time a procedure is scheduled. This will remain as a credit on your account and is applied towards the balance when we collect the remaining amount, due at discharge.
If our staff is notified of your intent to reschedule or cancel the procedure after closing hours the day prior to the procedure, the deposit will be lost and an additional $200 deposit must be collected before the procedure can be rescheduled. We understand unexpected things can happen and will do our best to accommodate you.
Payment is due in full at the time of services or at discharge. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Care Credit and Cash. Please notify a staff member if you plan to use CareCredit
