What to Expect
Prior to surgery, we want to ensure that your pet is a good candidate for anesthesia and that we identify any risks that could cause anesthetic complications. In order for us to get a complete picture of your pets overall medical health, we will perform a complete physical examination and preanesthetic diagnostic testing.
Anesthetic procedures are performed Monday through Friday. Please fast your pet prior to any surgical or anesthetic procedure – water is okay but no food after midnight the night before the surgery. Surgical patients need to be dropped off between 8am-9am. The morning of the procedure, you will meet with our surgical team to review any questions you may have regarding the procedure.
Once your pet has been moved into recovery, we will call you with an update and to schedule a discharge time. At the time of discharge, you will receive written discharge instructions that will have all after care instructions, medications that your pet will be taking, diet and exercise recommendations and an appointment for a post surgical recheck.
