Surgery

.

Our team understands when your pet needs surgery, family members may be feeling a bit anxious and stressed. We will do our best to ease any worry or discomfort you or your pet may be feeling. We want to take as much “fear of the unknown” away as possible and will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding whatever surgery your pet may need. We will be happy to show you our state-of-the art surgical suite ahead of time. Just let us know before your pet’s procedure and we’ll give you a tour and meet the team!

What You Can Expect

Once Dr. Ted has determined surgery is needed, we will provide you with a written treatment plan which includes what will be done the day of the surgery and the cost of the plan. Please ask as many questions as you like!

About a week prior to the procedure and again the day before, we will call or send you a reminder with instructions about how to prepare your pet.

The day of surgery your pet will be weighed, and you will meet with one of our nurses to verify contact information, check medications and give an approximate time when your pet may be ready to go home. Give as many hugs and kisses as you need before we escort your pet into the hospital.

It is important to know as much as we can about how your pet’s organs are working, before we give anesthesia. That is why we will be performing blood testing. If any test shows a problem, Dr. Ted will call you to discuss what he finds. When all the blood tests are finished and Dr. Ted has given us the green light, we will prepare your pet for surgery. Your pet’s heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen level and ECG will be monitored throughout the procedure. Your pet’s body temperature will be maintained with the help of a warm water circulating blanket during and after the procedure.

One of our nurses will call you with an update when your pet’s surgery is finished and is in recovery. She will schedule a time for your pet to be discharged from the hospital. At that time, she will meet with you to go over any medications that may be sent home and post-op discharge instructions. You will also be given written instructions you can refer to.

Please ask as many questions as you like! It is our pleasure to make sure you and your pet have the best recovery possible!
