One of our top priorities is to provide comfortable and safe environment for every pet that requires surgery, whether scheduled or emergency. From pre-surgery consult to post-surgery recovery, we are here for your pets every step of the way.
The following points should serve as a general guideline for most procedures. Your veterinarian will go over the specifics for your pet with you prior to surgery.
No food or water after midnight the night before surgery
Arrive at the hospital between 7:30 am and 8:30 am the morning of surgery for admission
Pre-surgical bloodwork is required for all anesthetic patients
Consent forms must be signed prior to surgery
At admission, the Doctor or technician will review your pet’s procedure with you, review the surgical consent form, explain risks, possible complications, recovery, and answer any questions.
Provide us with a contact phone number to reach you with updates during the day
It is generally difficult to give you a specific time for your pet’s surgery. Scheduled surgeries are not performed in the order of arrival to the hospital, but are based on the procedures being performed that day.
You will receive a call from the Veterinarian after surgery is complete to give you an update on how the procedure went and what time your pet will be able to go home.
You will receive Discharge Instructions for your pet after surgery
Follow those instructions and administer medications (if needed)
Monitor incision site for swelling, heat, pain, redness, or discharge
Keep an eye on your pet’s appetite during recovery
Return to the hospital for a follow up appointment (if recommended)
Call the hospital with any questions or concerns
