Pet Surgery Frequently Asked Questions

We understand just how stressful it can be to know your pet needs surgery, which is why we’ve taken the time to compile some answers to the most common questions we receive.

What Kinds of Surgeries Do You Perform?

Our skilled team is able to perform any number of surgical procedures right here in our office, ranging from “routine” procedures such as spay and neuter, to more complicated surgeries that arise out of medical necessity.

What Preparation Steps Are Taken?

Before we schedule any surgical procedure for your pet, we’ll take the time to perform a thorough exam and diagnostic testing to ensure that your pet is a viable candidate for the procedure. If this turns out to be the case, we’ll then go through every detail with you so you can be sure of what to expect from your pet’s surgery, including the type of pain management plan we recommend for keeping your pet comfortable.

How is My Pet Kept Safe?

During your pet’s surgery, our experienced and skilled team will be at your pet’s side carefully monitoring all vital signs such as oxygen levels, heart rate, blood pressure, and more. Proven techniques and procedures are used to ensure that your pet is safe and comfortable throughout the entire procedure.

What Should I Expect at Pick-Up?

Once your pet has come out of anesthesia and is safe to return home, we’ll give you a call to come pick up your pet. At this time, we’ll also review any after-care procedures and answer any questions you have so you can feel confident in bringing your pet home.
