Pre and Post-Surgical Care

Prior to surgery, a pre-surgical examination and blood screen is performed. The results of these tests, along with your pet’s past anesthetic history, breed, pre-existing conditions and age, are used to create an individualized anesthesia protocol. It is our responsibility to make sure your pet is in the best health possible before undergoing surgery. We also ensure your pet is monitored and safe during all aspects of surgery.

Before your pet is discharged from the hospital, our medical staff will provide detailed information on how to properly care for your pet post-surgery and what the next course of action, if any, should be.
