Operating Theatre

Letchworth Veterinary Centre have 3 connected rooms for performing operations on your pets.

A central preparation room is used for inducing anaesthesia and then patients are taken into our main operating theatre for sterile operations, or into our second operating theatre for dentals or other non-sterile procedures.

Anaesthetic gases are piped in from outside, and powerful operating lights along with a fully adjustable operating table ensure optimum operating conditions for the veterinary surgeon.

Anaesthetics are closely monitored by our nurses with the additional help of pulse oximetry (monitoring the oxygen level in your pet's blood), capnography (monitoring your pet's respiratory function) and ecg (monitoring heart function).

Although anaesthesia these days is generally very safe, having this monitoring equipment gives us very early warning of any problems should they arise.
