Your Pet’s Comfort And Safety Are Our Top Priorities

Our animal hospital in Colorado Springs is designed for your pet’s comfort and safety, with such features as:

  • Modern, fully equipped surgical suites that offer the most advanced surgical and monitoring equipment

  • A state-of-the-art intensive care unit (ICU) should your pet require this level of care after surgery

  • Anesthesia tailored to your pet’s unique needs, with careful monitoring before, during and after surgery

  • Around-the-clock after-care by skilled and caring veterinarians and veterinary technicians

  • Today’s most advanced pain management techniques to keep your pet comfortable throughout the process

Your Peace Of Mind Is Important To Us

We understand that having your pet undergo surgery can be stressful. That’s why:

  • We'll go over the procedure with you in advance so you fully understand what to expect

  • We'll call you with a status report as soon as your pet is out of the operating room and in recovery (or discuss it with you in person if you stay onsite during the procedure)

  • We’ll also keep your primary care veterinarian informed during your pet's hospitalization and recovery

What to expect after surgery

After surgery, we’ll continue to monitor your pet closely to make sure they’re stable and resting comfortably. Some patients will need to stay in our ICU for 24 hours or more post-operatively.

While your pet’s recovery begins here at Powers, you’ll provide a great deal of their after-care at home. Our surgery team will give you detailed instructions at discharge, and we’re always just a phone call away if you have questions.

Post-Operative Rehabilitation

If your pet has undergone orthopedic surgery or another procedure for which post-operative rehabilitation would be beneficial, we’ll discuss this with you in advance.

Post-op orthopedic rehab treatment packages, designed especially for your pet’s needs, are available for a discounted rate when purchased at the time of surgery. We also offer aqua therapy (underwater treadmill) as well as acupuncture packages.
