Surgery

About Vet Surgery

If your animal is scheduled for procedures under general anesthesia we ask that you keep the following in mind to ensure their readiness.

Remove Food

Remove food by 6:00pm the night before their scheduled procedure.

My animal is sick?

Consider rescheduling if your animal is not feeling well.

Incisions

Your pet may have an incision(s) that consists of sutures or staples that will require special care.  They will not be able to be groomed, bathed or swim for 10 days after surgery.  They may have to wear an E-collar to avoid licking or chewing at incision site. Suture removal is 12-14 days post-op and staple removal is at 10 days post-op.

Payment

Payment in full is expected at the time of service unless you make arrangements with the business office prior to the day of the procedure.

Water Access

Continue to allow access to water to prevent dehydration.

Early Dropoff

Be available to drop them off the morning of the procedure between 7:30 am – 8:30 am.

Pickup

Your pet will be awake when released between the hours of 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm (clinic closing time), however, your pet may still be a little wobbly on their feet and need to go home to a quiet, safe environment.

Symptoms

Nausea or vomiting can be a side effect of anesthesia so feeding right away is discouraged.  Half of their normal dinner can be given at normal feeding time, but if vomiting occurs remove food until the next day. If they tolerate the initial feeding wait an hour and feed the second portion.

Visiting the Office

We are currently allowing clients into the building, and only require masks for those clients who are NOT FULLY VACCINATED.

Fully vaccinated clients do not need to mask but masks are provided at the front door. Please be mindful we have vulnerable staff who cannot vaccinate.

If you are visiting us for an appointment, we ask that you leave your pet in the vehicle, check in at reception to receive your pager and then return to your vehicle until you are paged.

If your pet is scheduled for a surgery or inpatient visit such as dentals or diagnostic exam, we ask that you leave your pet in the vehicle, come into reception to fill out paperwork, and once our staff is ready, we will have you go get your pet for drop off.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
