On the day of your pet’s scheduled surgical procedure, we will admit your pet between 7:45 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. One of our veterinary technicians will provide your pet with personalized care throughout the procedure and recovery. To help ensure your pet’s safety, we offer a pre-operative examination and blood screening prior to all anesthetic procedures. We administer a pre-operative sedative to help your pet relax and minimize his or her stress.
During the procedure, we use the highest quality human-grade anesthesia and monitor your pet’s temperature, heart rate and rhythm, respiratory rate, and the oxygen level in the blood. We also recommend IV catheter and IV fluids to ensure we have immediate access if problems should arise. Multiple Pain options are available for our patients, and will be catered to your individual pets needs. Ensuring the comfort of your pet and allowing for a pain free recovery. Most routine surgical procedures preformed at our facility do not require an overnight stay, allowing your pet to be home with you the same day as the surgery. A complimentary 1 night stay before or after surgery is also offered for your convenience.
During recovery, a veterinary technician monitors your pet to ensure he or she is provided with warm blankets and is kept comfortable and pain free. After a routine recovery, our staff will call you with an update and will schedule a discharge time. At the time of your pet’s discharge, you will be given a copy of all post-operative care instructions and all post -op care will be discussed with you. If additional pet medications are prescribed, they will be filled at our onsite pharmacy for your added convenience.
We are available to answer all of your questions regarding the procedure and recovery of your pet. Please feel free to call our office at (606) 388-4500.
