All our anaesthetics are monitored by experienced and dedicated nurses, and all of our patients are closely monitored throughout their surgery.

Pre-blood screening is available on-premises before the anaesthetic is given to the patient intravenous fluids during anaesthesia and surgery are also routinely used. We also provide a wide range of appropriate pain relief and analgesia to our patients to facilitate a pain-free recovery.

Digital X-Ray

We have two digital machines in use currently. Digital X-Ray can produce high quality images in a blink of an eye. This allows the ability of veterinarians to change the contrast, magnification and resolution of the image to increase the ability to make an accurate diagnosis rapidly. These images can be shared with a radiologist for an opinion.

Endoscopy

Endoscopy can be used to visualise pathology in the chest and abdominal cavity as well as assisting in the removal of ingested foreign bodies that can lead to obstructions.

Common foreign bodies that are removed using an endoscope are bones, jewellery, soft toys, strings and plastic or rubber balls.

During the procedure, a video recording and images are taken for viewing post examination.

Endoscope exams can also help to determine other illnesses like gastric or oesophageal ulcers and tumours.

Ultrasound also is useful for pregnancy diagnosis and checking health of the foetus if a Caesarean is warranted.

All the veterinarians at SAI Veterinary Hospital are experienced in the use of ultrasound. However, at our discretion, we also utilise a visiting ultrasonographer from Imaging First for select patients for first opinion sonography for cardiac and abdominal diseases.

We collaborate with pathologists in external labs as well to get advanced testing like genetic test and specialised biomarkers for specific disease diagnosis and monitoring. We regularly recommend vaccine titres if a pet has immune dysfunction as well.
