The Facilities

Southwest Animal Care Complex has a well equipped surgery suite including inhalation anesthesia and pulse-ox monitoring during surgery. We are also equipped for most soft tissue and orthopedic procedures including internal fixation of simple to complicated fractures. Dr. McKee’s extensive surgical experience makes it possible for SWACC to handle most surgery cases that are presented.

SWACC is equipped with state of the art computer enhanced digital radiography. This provides us with high quality images that enhance our ability to make more sophisticated diagnoses as well as the ability to digitally share these images with colleagues via e-mail or compact disc. We therefore can seek radiographic consultations and send films to specialty clinics.

SWACC has an extensive in house diagnostic laboratory allowing us to provide most results on a same day basis.
