Preparing Your Pet For Surgery

After you’ve seen our surgeon, you will be given a diagnosis and a treatment plan to go over.

Preparing Your Pet For Surgery

Once you have had an appointment with our surgeon, a diagnosis and treatment plan will be discussed with you. You will be provided with an estimate for all treatments and surgical procedures that may be recommended. Pain management and post operative care will be discussed.

The majority of our surgical procedures are performed on an outpatient basis which means your pet will not stay the night with us unless absolutely necessary. Most patients are more comfortable being at home following surgery, but this will be determined on your animal’s specific condition and recovery. Surgical procedure(s) accommodations will be made if overnight care is necessary for your pet’s healing process.

All pertinent medical history should be sent to our office prior to your appointment. When your veterinarian submits their referral, all records are requested at that time. This will allow us to appropriately assess your animal and provide you with an accurate diagnosis.

Diabetic pets will receive individualized instructions at the time of their consultation.
