WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Your veterinarian will explain every step of the process with you and answer any questions regarding your pet’s procedure, recovery time, post-operative care and more.
Managing your pet’s pain and safety is always our foremost concern. Prior to your pet’s surgery, your veterinarian will perform a physical exam and run diagnostics to make sure they are healthy. If we detect any underlying problems, we will postpone your pet’s surgery to a later date.
Your pet will be monitored by an experienced technician throughout their surgery. Analgesics (painkillers), antibiotics and fluids will be administered through an IV catheter to keep your pet stable and comfortable. Our surgery table is heated to maintain your pet’s body temperature, and in recovery, they will be given warm blankets for additional comfort. We will call you as soon as your pet is able to stand and walk on their own, and will discuss home care and medication instructions when you arrive. Do not hesitate to call us in the following days if you have any concerns.
