Common Questions About Surgical Care Services
Will my pet be closely monitored while in surgery and after surgery?
Yes, our highly trained staff takes pride in closely monitoring all pets while under anesthesia by observing blood pressure, temperature, respiratory rate, heart rate, and blood oxygen level.
Following surgery, your pet is monitored to ensure a safe and comfortable recovery.
Is there an age limit for my pet's surgical procedures?
No. There is no age limit for surgical procedures. Each pet is carefully assessed with a pre-surgical examination and blood work (if deemed necessary) to identify any potential risk factors. This allows us to adjust our anesthesia protocol for a safe surgical procedure.

I cannot say enough. Dr. Butler is a blessing, to say the least. Our sweet Juniper had been off for a few days. I ran her into All For Paws last evening and they took her right in. Come to find out, she was dealing with a deadly illness. With great thanks to Dr. Butler, Juniper has made miraculous progress in the last 24 hours. Last night, I was uncertain if she would even be with us this morning.
Now, even though I know we aren’t completely in the clear, I’m confident that she will make a full recovery! I HIGHLY recommend All For Paws. From the second I walked through the door, I was greeted with kindness and love.
Dr. Butler was absolutely amazing, extremely thorough and very knowledgeable! She spent about an hour and a half working with us and even when our time went well over closing time, she went into great detail when explaining everything to me. She and her entire team were attentive, kind, caring and so patient!
They have seen her at her worst and I can’t wait to take Juniper back so that everyone there can see her at her best!! Thank you all so much!-Stacie Brown
