Any visit to KLSVC begins with a complete
Physical Examination. This is vital to properly assess the treatment recommended for your pet. The physical exam consists of the doctor evaluating the condition of the patient, assessing the vital signs, overall attitude, internal palpation, and cardiac function. After conducting an exam, the doctor will be able to provide recommendations to further treat the specific needs of your pet..
To complement our laboratory and further assist our doctors with internal visibility, we have expanded our diagnostic capabilities with a number of other resources. KLSVC has the ability to perform in-house radiography and ultrasonography. As well, we can evaluate our critical patients utilizing equipment to asses a variety of the same information human emergency rooms calculate including:
Oxygen saturation (SPO2)
Heart performance (ECG)
Two Types of blood pressure
This important information aids our staff in diagnosing, treating, and monitoring our patients
An important part of emergency care is the ability to perform surgery when necessary. KLSVC has a fully equipped surgical suite, which allows us to treat both soft tissue and minor orthopedic conditions. Our surgical suite is equipped with a dedicated multi-parameter vital signs monitor to greatly reduce the risk of anesthetic procedures.
