What does surgery involve?
Surgery for pets is very similar to surgery for humans. During the pre-operative appointment, the necessary preparations for
surgery will be discussed. If your pet is having anesthesia, fasting will be required, and we request that you inform us of any medications your pet
is taking. With some surgeries, an overnight stay at our facility is necessary so we can continue to monitor your pet’s recovery. If this is
required with your surgery, you will be notified during your pre-operative appointment.
We believe that pain management is a critical aspect of recovery. We make an added effort to provide your pet with superior
comfort. If we feel that post-operative pain management would be beneficial to your pet, we will prescribe additional medication.
Upon the completion of surgery, you will be informed of all care instructions for recovery. If you have any questions or concerns
about your pet’s surgery, or would like to schedule a surgery, please contact our office.
