Ariel Placing an IV Catheter

All surgeries and dental procedures have an IV catheter placed as part of the procedure.  When your pet is admitted for surgery, the first thing we do is place an IV and begin IV fluid therapy.

If you’ve ever wondered what this is like, here is a great video of our nurse, Ariel, placing an IV catheter! This is Jocko – who was here for a neuter yesterday!
