Before your pet goes into surgery, we conduct a preoperative exam to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for the procedure. Additionally, we recommend bloodwork before the surgery to test your pet’s liver and kidney functions. This is done to confirm that their body can filter out the anesthesia necessary to perform the surgery.
Our compassionate veterinarians will discuss the surgery and any potential complications with you. We are always happy to answer any questions you have. All pets are unique and have different health and emotional needs, so we understand how important it is to take the time to address any concerns you may have.
During any animal surgery under anesthesia, your pet will be monitored with state-of-the art technology and fully attended to by a trained, compassionate medical team.
We use the most current anesthetics to ensure that our patients are safe, comfortable and pain-free during their procedure.
When the surgery is complete and your pet is ready to be discharged, we will provide you with instructions for basic home care. It’s vitally important for you to follow these instructions precisely, whether they include wound care or simple administration of medications.
Read over the instructions before you leave and ask any questions you might have. Find out when your pet needs to return for a follow-up examination or to have sutures removed. It’s advisable to make a note of our after-hours contact information in case you have any concerns about your pet’s well-being once you’re home.
