Our surgical staff is highly experienced in performing routine, emergency, and complex surgeries. The steps to ensure a healthy and viable surgery begin before the procedure and end weeks after it is over. We will be there for our patients undergoing surgery to offer advice and wisdom at every step of the way.
Before the surgery, we will schedule a physical examination to be sure your pet is healthy enough to undergo the anesthesia and surgical process. During this examination, please feel encouraged to ask your veterinarian any questions, or voice any concerns you have about the procedure so we can give you honest feedback. We know that anytime a loved one goes under the knife, it can cause emotions to run high. Our job as veterinary professionals is to help you through this time by providing you with all of the information you need.
During the surgery, we will use monitors to monitor your pet’s temperature, respiration, pulse oximetry, and blood pressure. One of our veterinary assistants will have the responsibility of monitoring the EKG throughout the entire length of the procedure.
We will also perform comprehensive pain management preemptively. This way, when your pet wakes up, steps will have already been taken to mitigate their pain.
After the surgery we will continue to closely monitor your pet to ensure they are recovering from the anesthesia in a typical manner. Depending on the procedure, we may want to monitor them overnight following the surgery, or they may be able to go home later that day.
When they do have the all clear to return home with you, we will send with them some literature about their post-operative care. Having written directions can help you to have peace of mind that you are doing everything possible to keep them comfortable.
