Your Pet’s Surgery

  • How to Prepare & What to Expect

    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

     

  • 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.

  • Going Home After Surgery

    • 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
